Nena Diane Seats,64, of Centralia, gained her wings at 7:10p.m. Thursday, March 22, 2018, at Decatur Memorial Hospital, surrounded by her friends and family. She was born on December 26, 1953 in Centralia, the daughter of Gene Reddish, Joyce Beasley, and Cecil Chapman.

Nena was preceded in death by both her fathers, Gene Reddish and Cecil Chapman; 2 sisters, Lisa and Jana.

Nena proudly accepted the title Nana. You could easily find her outdoors, swinging on the porch swing, or sitting by the campfire. She loved spending time with her family at classic rock concerts, and fishing at the river. She was her grandchildren’s biggest fan, attending any activity they were involved with. She will be remembered as a true social butterfly and for her sweet smile.
