Daily Staff Report
Vail CO, Colorado

Naomi “Tuba” Nitz, beloved mother of Carol Nitz and John Nitz, passed away Aug. 4 in Michigan at the age of 76. Tuba’s strong Christian faith carried her through her long battle with cancer.

While living in the Vail Valley, Tuba earned the reputation of being a loving nanny for many local families.

When she wasn’t baking her famous cinnamon rolls, Tuba could be found dancing at bluegrass and country music festivals.

A celebration of Tuba’s life is being planned for later this month.

In lieu of flowers, donations to the Naomi “Tuba” Nitz Memorial Fund can made at any First Bank.
