Nia Marie Rea passed away on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 @ 7:00pm at her home surrounded by her family. 


Nia M. Rea was born on November 24, 2011 in Bell County. Nia wore a beautiful brown and white fur coat. Her personality will be remembered as loving and playful. She enjoyed having her squeaky toy's! She was attentive to her grandpa. When he would take the trash out she knew it was her time to go outside with him, she also went and checked the mail with him daily. When he came home from the store she also knew it was treat time. She loved waiting by the window waiting for grandma to get home from work. She loved having her "Sisters" come over to visit. She would let her momma Angie know when they arrived. Nia would show off her new toys to the guest and even showed too much affection by licking excessively, which the family will all miss. She was an in-house girl who enjoyed the air conditioning but occasionally would sunbathe outside. Nia grew up with her pet sister Pookie, the cat. Together they had fun and Nia couldn't control her affection for her sister. It was noted when Pookie would have wet fur licked by Nia. 


Nia is survived by her human mother, Angie Marie Rea; grandparents, Mary and Charles Rea; two siblings, Trinity Mainer, Dominic Mainer; one uncle, Allan Rea and wife Sandy of Ohio; one aunt, Tressa Besserman and husband Harold of Illinois; 7 niece's & nephew's; 7 great niece's and nephew's and her pet sister, Pookie.

Nia was my cuddle girl when I came over. Showing me her pigs when we played in the floor, left covered in drool and yellow fur and lots of love. I will miss driving her to see her friends at the vet every year. I'm gonna miss her immensely, the house won't be the same. Pookie won't play pigs with me.... I love you and we will see you on the other side of the rainbow bridge. Play and run with my Laila while you wait.

Every time I would visit with the family, Nia would be right there in the mix of conversation expecting to be noticed and of coarse petted!! She would give you "Lovings" right back! She was the sweetest and most loving fur baby any one could ask for! She will be missed tremendously! Rest in peace Nia, you were loved!!!
