Rest In Peace, Chrissie Nemis, Mother Of Richard Nemis – Tribute and Condolences Board

Posted by AGORACOM at 4:58 PM on Friday, April 1st, 2011

It is with sadness we announce the passing of Chrissie Nemis, beloved mother of Richard Nemis, the most admired and respected executive amongst AGORACOM members of all time.   I know many members want to express their condolences to Richard and his family, so please do so below as Elaine will be forwarding this post to Richard.


Few, if any of us, knew her but we knew what she created in Richard and that makes her a great lady.  Not surprisingly, however, her contributions to society went far beyond little Richard – and I was very happy to discover the following after a quick Google search and subsequent confirmation by Elaine Finlay this afternoon.

Specifically, you will be happy to know the St. Joseph’s Foundation recently held a tribute concert for Chrissie Nemis honoring her as a deserving musician/performer who has contributed to the artistic growth of our city during their lifetime.  To honour her, the Foundation assembled some of this city’s finest musicians, as well as, those of her students who have gone on to become professional performers in different locales.

Coming Home “To You With Love” Concert In Honour Of Chrissie Nemis

This years first honoree is Mrs. Chrissie Nemis; musician, teacher, benefactor and supporter of our music heritage for the past 75 years. Come join us in honoring her accomplishments and impressive contributions to our community.

Why am I not surprised?

Though today is a day of sorrow for the Nemis Family and all of their friends, we can take great pride in the fact Chrissie Nemis created great music, musicians and even a mining executive that will all make the world a better place for many decades to come.

Rest In Peace Chrissie Nemis.

    To Richard and family,

    Sounds of voices, sounds of life… leave echoes of the years
    And all the kind and loving words made music to our ears
    And so we play these songs again these tunes that ever last
    We dance into the future with the music of the past.

    Love and Peace,

    I would like to pass on my heartfelt condolences to all family and close friends of a lady who must have filled a large space in so many lives. She has undoubtably influenced a large number of people and left them with a much richer life for having known her.

    Richard…Ross and I are so sorry for the loss of your mother. After reading the newspaper articles about her, we got the sense of what a wonderful person she must was and we can only imagine how proud she must have been of you and your accomplishments as well..Thinking of you and your family during this difficult time..Big hugs from the West!!

    Evening Richard; As I once publically mentioned, you are one of the few people that I would do mining business with only a hand shake and live comfortably after. For you to rate such confidence means that Chrissie had passed on to you a great set of morals, which in turn meant that she was a remarkable woman, besides her musical achievments.

    My mixed sympathy’s Richard, a plus for having had such a grand mother, and negative ones for your loss..

  7. My condolences to the Nemis Family. REST IN PEACE.

  8. John Fisher (scarff) says:

    I never knew you but I knew your son Richard. I knew Richard to be a great businessman who operated with integrity and honesty with everyone. These attributes are most likely the ones you vested in him as his mother. REST IN PEACE.
