It is with joy in her life and sadness in her absence that the family of Nina announces her death on August 11, 2021 at the age of 88.
Nina was born to Henry and Ellen Childs in Lark Harbour, NL,the place she called home for all her life, even when away. She married James Druggett on July 20, 1951, and they lived and loved together with their three children until his untimely death in 1985.

She tried to spread joy to people in her much-loved community through her participation in concerts and plays, visits to the sick and active involvement in St. James Anglican Church. Her ministry there included the Vestry, Choir, Altar Guild, ACW, and Eucharistic Minister. She found so much happiness in the work she did with the ACW, particularly because of the wonderful women that shared in the work and the fun they had together. We thank you all for the parts you played in sharing her life, herjoy and her laughter!
