Baba Nadia’s passing has left a void in our lives, one that is felt deeply by each of us who were fortunate enough to be touched by her love, warmth, kindness, and talent. Grandma was more than just a family matriarch; she was an artist in her own right, a master seamstress whose skilled hands wove love and care into every stitch. Her sewing was not just a hobby; it was a way of expressing her love and leaving a legacy that would be cherished for generations. Each piece she created was a testament to her patience, precision, and artistry. From the priest garments, to the cozy quilts that warmed our beds to the elegant dresses she mended with such finesse, her work was always imbued with a sense of purpose and affection. Her creations were not just garments or household items; they were stories woven into cloth, memories stitched into seams. Each piece she made for us was a reminder of her dedication, a symbol of her enduring presence in our lives. As we remember Grandma Nancy, let us cherish the moments we shared with her and the lessons she taught us through her sewing. Her legacy lives on in the stitches of time, in the fabric of our family, and in the threads of love that she so skillfully wove into our lives.
