February 18, 1933 - July 13, 2020
Nina Pentland, 87, passed away on Monday, July 13, 2020, at the Chelsea Solana Senior Living in Marlboro, NJ. Nina was born Saturday, February 18, 1933, in Newark, NJ., daughter of the late William and Margaret Samarin. Her late husband was George Pentland. Nina was raised in Newark, NJ. Nina and George raised their children, Laurie, Daniel and Patrick in Avenel, N.J., where she lived for more than sixty years. She lived simply, caring for her family and tending to her little house and yard. When she got to the point in her life that she needed help doing some of things she had prided herself as being able to accomplish on her own, Nina evolved into the ultimate 'supervisor'. The way she saw it, there were three ways to tackle tasks: the 'wrong way', the 'logically correct way', and the 'Nina way' to do things. Of course, the 'Nina way' always prevailed. Nina's pot roast and potato pancakes were specialties that she made every Christmas. She was a skillful seamstress and sewed window treatments and slipcovers for her own home as well as for any family members in need. She took the family on 'adventures' in New York City, Sandy Hook and Lake George. Nina enjoyed trips to Atlantic City and the Sands Casino in Pennsylvania to play the slot machines. Nina was not a religious person, but she always lived by the Golden Rule - 'Do unto others as you would have them do unto you'. Nina will be missed by all those that loved her. Like Mary Poppins, she was 'practically perfect in every way'. Nina is survived by her loving children, Laurie Kraus and her husband Jay, Daniel Pentland and his wife Aleida, and Patrick Pentland and his partner Josef Romanski, by her cherished grandchildren, Brianne, Kyle, Sydney, Keith, Alex, Paige and Eugene, and by her beloved great granddaughter Charli. Funeral Services are private. In Lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the hospice service that provided care to Nina in the last few months of her life.
