Nannie was born on May 17, 1919.  Nannie was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt, and friend to all.  She was a wealth of knowledge and was everyone’s “go-to” when they needed a “history lesson”.

She was also proceeded in death by her son-in-law Bill Holley, daughter-in-law’s Marie Campbell, Barbara Campbell, and Darlene Campbell.
