Nina was born Nov. 2, 1933, in Vernon, to Roscoe Marion Leffingwell and Thelma Louise (Givens) Leffingwell. She married Frankie Joe Sears on Aug. 31, 1950. Together they had three children. Nina and Frank owned Frank Sears Construction Co. Raising the children they so loved and running their own company was their dream. Frank passed away May 14, 1989. On Oct. 30, 1993, Nina was blessed to be married to a second man who loved her dearly. On Oct. 30, 1993, in Windthorst, she married Raymond B. Peysen and they lived in Buffalo Springs for a number of years until their move to Windthorst. They were blissfully married and totally devoted to each other, until his death, May 13, 2008. In August of 2018, Nina moved to Royal Estates to retire from life’s little headaches. No longer cooking, no house to maintain gave her all the time she wanted to watch her favorite television shows, go to dinners and movies with her great-grandchildren, play her favorite games of Forty-two and Chickenfoot, and whatever else her heart desired! Nina was a social butterfly who grew and blossomed there as she enriched the lives of the other residents along her way!
