Antonia Bartolo know as "Nellie", is best known as the home aide to the Blessed Dun Ġorġ Preca.
She was born on 6 May 1915 and started working for Dun Ġorġ at a young age. After his death, Nellie was the main witness in the lengthy Curia investigation into Dun Ġorġ's case for sainthood.
Her explanations of the life of poverty that the priest chose to live were remarkable, and she was thrilled on the day when Pope John II came to Malta in 2001 to declare her venerated employer blessed.
She died on 1 November 2003 at the age of 88.
