The following letter arrived from Nicole (Nikki) Nutting, Natane's daughter, living in Bonita, California. July 29, 2005 Dear Friends and Relations: My mother Tane Nutting, died peacefully in her sleep early yesterday. After a long, rich and satisfying life she was ready. Her legacy to me was the example she set: to enjoy other people, have interesting pursuits, and make the most of opportunities. I will be a perennial student. Private services will be held, and I trust that her many friends around the globe will find relevant ways to honour her memory. If anyone feels compelled to make a charitable donation in her name, her favorites were those organizations, which protected animals. Hopefully all of you, friends and family, will remember the good times. I know she loved you all. Sincerely, Nikki Nutting
Memories by Glenna Bell - Fredericton, New Brunswick Her address book went missing when she went into the nursing home in Chula Vista several months ago and Nikki asked me to pass along the word. I also know she was an avid historian and loved to look up family history. You can tell as some of her writings are in the Hartt family supplement. And it was through that that I really got to know her at all. She was looking for information on her great grandmother Elizabeth Sinclair - whom she was named after - her middle name is Sinclair. I started corresponding with her over that and eventually Miriam and I went down to San Diego for 10 days in 1994 (I think) and she showed us a really, really good time. Then she and Nikki came up to Fredericton several years later and it was lovely to take them around. We had a large family gathering at my sister Carol's house in Fredericton Junction and got to meet everyone and had a great time. Tane was a lovely, witty, personable, enjoyable person that you just loved spending time with, and we will all miss her. I wish we all could have known her better and longer. She always said she loved "mixing it up with her Canadian cousins!!!!" Several of us have decided to put a donation into the Currie House Historical Society in her name. It seems such a fitting way to get the word out to the family about Tane's passing. I will mail a copy of this to Nikki.
