She enjoyed spending her time helping people, and being an activist for justice. She liked to follow politics and was a member of morality in media.

Nada was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, and friend who gave us hope for things not yet seen. She was known for having an enormous amount of empathy, offering comfort to many friends and strangers, and giving guidance to those who needed it whatever the circumstances. Nada was the total package; a beautiful woman, a beautiful soul, and a beautiful mind. The world has lost a very special person and she will be missed dearly.
