JOHNSTON, Ohio – “She believed she could so she did.” That’s certainly the case with Nancy J. Fiorino, 63, a wonderful mother, grandmother, daughter, sister and friend who went to be with the Lord on Tuesday, November 15, 2016 at St. Joseph Health Center.
Nancy came into this world a fighter, born December 23, 1952 and she left the world the same way.
She sure did love life and more importantly all of the people in it. It’s hard not to smile when thinking about Nancy, even in this time of intense sorrow. She enjoyed playing cards, shopping, road trips and then some more shopping. Even more special to her were the times she spent with her children and grandchildren.
She is preceded in death by her father, Richard Betts, Sr. and husband Joseph Fiorino, Jr. who she married October 7, 1975 and passed away December 13, 1991.
Nancy experienced her own loss throughout her life and should be credited to the overwhelming amount of love she gave her two daughters, Gina (Wade) Fiorino-Roberts of Columbus and Joey (Tim) Tvaroch of Warren.
She is survived by her mother Ada (Richard) Bland; four grandchildren, Brendyn, Savannah and Allegra Tvaroch and Andon Roberts; a brother, Richard (Alice) Betts of Kinsman; a sister, Judy (Paul) Faatz of Green and her companion Pete Williams of Cortland. She was also survived by stepsiblings and many other friends and family who loved her.
Nancy had a strong spirit and will always be remembered for her giving heart. A second mom to many, a friend to all she met, she has left us with memories and stories to last a lifetime.
