Nannette B. Slovenski

NAGS HEAD, NC ­- Nannette Blanche Slovenski, 83, passed away peacefully of natural causes in Nags Head, NC February 17, 2018. “Nan” or “Shorty” as she was lovingly known was born in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Frank and Evelyn Kroboth.

Slovenski and Leann Slovenski; and her daughter-in-law, Debbie Slovenski all of Colington. Other survivors include numerous family members in Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania.
