Nina was born on Oct. 10, 1935, in Brock, to Harv and Bessie Johnson. She was a 1954 graduate of Brock High School where she was quite athletic and excelled in basketball. Nina was a life-time member of the Brock United Methodist Church and served her church in many capacities especially as a young adult in the choir and as Youth Director. Her work career included early jobs at General Dynamics and Buick Corp, then finally retiring in 2003 with over 30 years at TXI which she always balanced with attending the school and sports events of her three children.
She had a voracious love for reading and visiting her siblings. In her retirement years she developed a love for Major League Baseball (especially the Texas Rangers) along with occasional visits to Winstar.
