CLINE; Nina Phylis

Passed away peacefully after living a long, full life.

Born in Vancouver, Nina lived most of her life in the Vancouver and South Surrey areas, with some years spent in Pennsylvania and California. She worked as a Secretary for several firms throughout her career until she finally retired at age 75. She was an avid bridge player and loved playing and watching sports, especially hand ball and tennis. Nina was a kind and loving person who was loved by all who knew her. She was a very gracious lady. She will now live on in our hearts. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Canadian Diabetes Association would be appreciated.
