Nima Marie (Kaufman) Heagy, 92, of Delmont, passed away peacefully on Friday, April 9, 2021, at her home. She was born Nov. 11, 1928, in Pierce, PA, to the late Rev. Martin and Dora (Saylor) Kaufman. Nima ended her professional life as an administrative secretary at the University of Pittsburgh. She was raised in a devout Christian home and shared her faith with her children. She was a member of Salem Lutheran Church since 1964, and she spent 84 of her years as a member of a church choir. She was always quick to help others in need and never said no to anyone who came to her for help. She will be remembered for her quick wit, unconditional love, wonderful sense of humor, and her selflessness. She was a Scout leader and Sunday school teacher for many years. She enjoyed playing the piano, bowling, reading, newspaper puzzles and her coffee. Nima will be remembered most for her love of her family and her famous apple pie and potato salad.
