Obituary of Nina Marie Chow

Please share a memory of Nina Marie to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Nina Marie Chow, 59, of Forest Hills, NY passed away on March 14th, 2023.

Nina was born on April 14th, 1963, to Thomas and Lillian Clarke in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan, where she was raised. She attended Notre Dame High School, graduating as valedictorian of the class of 1981. She continued to excel at St. John’s University, graduating near the top of her class with a Bachelor’s degree in Communications.

In 1984, while working at Herman’s World of Sporting Goods, Nina met the love of her life, Jeffrey Chow. She married Jeffrey on October 18th, 1986 and was a devoted and loving wife to him, and then mother to Kaitlin, Dylan, Kylie, and Brandon.

Nina began her illustrious 38-year career at Katz Media Group in 1985 as a sales assistant. She received numerous promotions and eventually became a Senior Vice President of Business Systems, renowned for her unmatched work ethic, astute insights, attention to detail, and quick wit.

Nina was a lifelong Yankee fan, regularly tuning in to watch her favorites - Reggie Jackson, “Mr. October”, and Derek Jeter, “El Capitan”. She had a passion for gardening and crossword puzzles and was well-known for her elite Scrabble and Scategories skills. She was an avid fan of her beloved Bruce Springsteen (“Bruuuuce”…“The Boss”) and the TV classics of Golden Girls, SpongeBob, and General Hospital. She always enjoyed entertaining friends and family and had a taste for the finer things in life like lobster dinners, London Lenny clams and oysters, and Narita sushi. She also loved vacationing with her family at the Jersey Shore, relaxing with the latest beach read and an ice-cold glass of Chardonnay.

Nina is survived by her beloved husband of 36 years, Jeffrey, her daughters Kaitlin and Kylie, her sons Dylan and Brandon, and her sisters Cecilia, Julie, and Elizabeth, as well as countless nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was truly one of a kind and will be missed deeply.
