July 2019 Posted in Obituary

Claire “Memere” Nida was born on July 29, 1936 in Brockton, Massachusetts. She was preceded in death by her parents, Rose and Frank Bussiere, and sister Rita Tougas.

She is survived by her husband and best friend, Dwayne Nida, as well as by the family whom she loved so much: son Paul and Suellen Nida, daughter Tambra and Bill McCowen, grandchildren Jamie and Brad, and great-grandchildren, Ray, Ryan, Indra, Isis, Kaitlyn, Royce, Dag’r and Ryder. She is also survived by her sisters, Gloria and Jean, and nieces, Lynn, Marie and Jennifer.

Claire and Dwayne were restaurateurs, first in Silverton with a restaurant known as NV’s and then later Coffee Time in Salem in two different locations. They both retired from Roth’s Family Markets. The two spent many wonderful years with their RV gang back and forth to Yuma, Arizona.

Her sparkly blue eyes would mesmerize her great-grandchildren, and she always would make them giggle. She loved their visits. She will be so very missed. Interment will be private.
