Peacefully and after a long and valiant fight for over 6 years with Glioblastoma Brain cancer. Daughter to the late Joseph DeSantis and Gloria June DeSantis. Adored sister of the late Cheryl Chapman. Loving and devoted wife for 42 years to Mark Abraham. Mother and best friend to Sara (David) Hofmann of South Park and Brendan(Chelsea) Abraham of Roswell Georgia. Nuni to the three loves of her life Madison, Conner and Tyler.
She is also survived by many family and friends who will miss her dearly.
Nina had a true zest for life, a charismatic smile and infectious laugh, always the words of wisdom. She was a lover of the casino and the midnight buffets. A work ethic that you don't find often and a fighting spirit that will be deeply missed and a quote that made her famous among family and friends "It is what it is"
The family would like to thank Hillman Cancer Center along with Family Hospice for their care and compassion during this difficult process.
