Cheryl Scott Sheinin, retired after 45 years in the BJ Finance Department, attended the ceremony for the final resting place of former BJ security guard Anna Nitz.

Anna passed away in 2012 at the age of 80. Tuesday, her ashes were distributed into the Atlantic Ocean off the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina that she loved so much.

Anna’s husband of 62 years is Bill Nitz.

Albert Nitz, Bill's cousin who drove Bill  to Myrtle Beach, read from the Bible and a tribute to her that he had written. Then everyone present sang “Amazing Grace.

Who could ask for a better sendoff?  
Cheryl’s husband is former BJ staffrt Neil Sheinin.
Anna was with Pinkertons since 1968. She was security guard at the parking desk entrance and the BJ lobby for decades.

She made lots of friends at Ol’ Blue Walls over time, was active in the Ladies Golf League and competed in the Corporate Challenge several times. 

BJ Advertising retiree Mike Williams, who returned from months in warm and sunny Mexico to a driving April snowstorm when he landed in Ohio with his wife of 27 years, Jane Spiess Williams, provided me with Anna’s 2012 obituary.

Here it is:
