She was preceded in death by her husband Dean Burns and her father Fred Kleysteuber. Nina was born in Marion County, Illinois on November 23, 1938 at the family farm in the same room that her mother was born in. During the early years they moved around to different towns following the oil industry before they made the trip to Montana. At the age of 9, Nina and her mother arrived in Montana by train and stayed in a hotel that reminded them of the Old West.

Nina ultimately graduated from Chinook High School where she met her first husband Dean, married and started their family. Dean and Nina raised their family in Roundup where all of her children graduated from high school. Nina first started working in the banking industry following a babysitting job for Paris Roberts. Paris decided that she had the intelligence and talent to work in the banking industry. Due to this opportunity Nina was able to showcase her abilities and was rewarded with increasingly gained responsibilities working for various banks and ultimately becoming a Vice President. Nina's and Dean were fully dedicated to supporting their kids by helping them achieve their ambitions. This included any activity/sport that their children were interested in. The kids fondly remember Nina supporting all of their extra-curricular activities no matter how far the drive and no matter how late they got back home. Nina's life was truly blessed by having two men that loved her deeply and intensely. Nina remarried 11 years after the passing of her first husband. Loren provided to Nina 22 years of love, joy, fun, and happiness. In addition Loren's son Ray along with two wonderful daughters, Colleen and Connie came into her life; she loved them both and viewed them as daughters. Nina was able to make many friends and enjoy the times together with all of them.
