Nina Rothamel, 64 of Palmyra, passed on the evening of September 2. She is survived by her husband of 40 years, Larry, her son Daniel and his wife Kari, her granddaughters Ava and Ivy, and her son Bryan and his wife Blair. She is also survived by her sister, Patty and her family, and brothers, Eddie and Vinny and their families. She was preceded in death by her brothers, Sidney and Gil, and her sister Judy.

Nina was a devoted wife and doting mother and grandmother, loved by her family and friends for her infectious positive attitude and laugh that was impossible to contain. Everyone who met Nina was greeted with words of encouragement and usually a corny joke or two. When Nina was with you, there was guaranteed to be smiles and laughter.

Nina was a faithful servant of our Lord Jesus Christ. She worshiped and served at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Charlottesville for 29 years. Serving in education, leadership and the choir, she was a vital part of her church family.

Nina was a dedicated employee of State Farm for more than 20 years. During her time there, she not only made many friends, but also educated and trained countless executives and agents. Her passion left an indelible mark on the State Farm organization and culture.

Anyone who would like to honor Nina's memory and celebrate her life is invited to join family and friends for a viewing at Teague Funeral home on Thursday, September 7th, from 6-8pm and at the funeral service at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Charlottesville (2416 Jefferson Park Ave.) on Friday, September 8th, at 11am. Family will be receiving guests at the church at 10am.

In lieu of flowers, Nina and the family request that memorial contributions be made to Immanuel Lutheran Church and/or Hospice of the Piedmont.
