Nanny was just that. Nanny, all of her family, friends and loved ones and our friends and our loved ones knew her as “Nanny”. She took care of us all, cooked a many biscuits, scratched our backs out fished us, sewed and ironed like no other always prayed and kept us updated on the weather and fussed at us sometimes. One thing for sure she loved us like no other.

Nosey Nanny, I already miss you asking me “what y’all talking about?” She wanted no secrets from her you see. Everything and everybody here was her business to be. Channel 6 always blaring and she was like James Spann always telling us the weather again and again. . She was the first one on the storm pit and the last one out.
Dr. Pepper was her favorite & she loved candy and sweets.
She loved thick socks, pajamas and heat. Her pride was her flowers & snowball bush.
Jesus was the name she called every night just to make sure her children were alright. That gospel music played next to her bed cause it reminded her of the words Jesus said. That was my Nanny down to the T and I’m so glad God shared her with me.

I remember the first day I meet Nanny and called her Mrs. Evans. She "sternly" informed me that she was Nanny and that was what I was to call her. That was over 20 years ago and i have called her that ever since. RIP Nanny, I love you
