She is survived by one sister; Delores Horton Glazier of Madison, Mississippi and one brother, Buddy Ball (Frances) of Louisville, Mississippi.

Nannie, as she was known by her family, was a wonderful cook and enjoyed making cakes and pies for her family and friends and hosting holiday “dinners” in her home. She enjoyed spending time with her family, gardening, and cooking. She was a member of Shiloh Baptist Church in Louisville. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Shiloh Baptist Church, 3155 Shiloh Road, Louisville, MS 39339.

A special thanks to the wonderful staff of Beehive Homes of Philadelphia, Mississippi who lovingly cared for our mom these last years of her life.
