NADIA HASSO VON VOLBORTH Has passed away peacefully on Jan. 5th 2021 at Age 95. Born August 2nd 1925, in Viipuri Finland to Nickolai & Anisia Hasso. Nadia was proud of being a Ballet dancer when she met her husband of 60 yrs Alexis von Volborth (her Dark Knight) Shortly thereafter they moved to the USA. They had 7 children 3 born in Europe and the remaining 4 in Reno Nevada. About the early 1960s they moved to Nadias beloved town of Nelson. Five of her children went to Boulder City schools since 1963. Nadia made friends wherever she went! Always full of love, fun, laughter and had a huge smile and hug for all she met, as she never met a stranger. She danced her way through life. Nadia was famous for saying what got her through life and to her age of 95 was with humor! She was proud of her volunteer work for her favorite radio station KNPR, bringing her famous dishes to the other volunteers, her Cannelloni ala Nadia, Swedish Meatballs, Spice Cake and Sweetbreads! Nadia also was a longtime member of the BDCU where she also brought them her famous Spice Cake, breads, laughter and hugs, making friends along the way. Nadia owned two shops in Boulder City, House of Volborth, (a Yarn shop) and Nadias Sewing. Nadia has been for about the past 30yrs a proud supporter and season ticket holder to the Las Vegas Ballet Group and The Las Vegas Philharmonic, she adored these activities! Nadias other love, which she called "Going to exercise her fingers" was Railroad Pass Casino, where she had made many friends there also. Nadia also wrote in her broken English short Haiku poems "The brains get "dull" when too much rest," "There are only good people or bad people." She is survived by 6 children, 2 nieces, and "Silly Grammy" to 10 grandchildren; 16 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild. She was very much loved by all and will be greatly missed! A celebration of life will be held in her honor at a later date due to restrictions of travel lately.
