She was an amazing artist and truly embraced all of the beauty in the world around her. The ocean was in her blood and Nita and Burt spent many hours boating throughout New England, whether that meant an excursion to the Vineyard or simply cruising Boston Harbor. They also relaxed many times in the U.S. Virgin Islands on Saint Thomas, one of their favorite destinations. Nita is survived by her children, Eric Boyer and his loving wife Sofia and their children Lance and Zachery, of Chestnut Hill, MA, and her daughter, Dr. Lisa Boyer and her husband Robert Miller and their children Pavel and Becca, of Loomis, CA.The grandchildren will dearly miss their Bubbie.
