Ann Nisbet Young Tallman Born July 7th, 1941 in Greensboro N. C. Died May 5th, 2019 after a long battle with cancer. She passed away at Beacon Place with family close by. She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank L. And Lilly G. Young & brothers, David and Tommy Young. She is survived by her daughter Belinda Tallman Leverock (grandson William) and son Richard David Tallman both of Florida & Brothers: Harry and Mickey (Virginia) Young of Greensboro & Joe Young of California. She was especially fond of her niece, Sharon Young Mills, and her daughters Jessica Brindle (great nephews Nathaniel and Nicholas) and Hannah Mills. Special appreciation to her lifelong friend Mary Catherine King for her loyal and loving support as well as undying friendship over the years. Another special thank you to Linda Jones long time trustworthy neighbor and kind friend.

Ann was an avid coffee drinker, a lover of plants and the sun, and crossword puzzle solver. She loved the mountains, but most of all, she loved the beach. She enjoyed a variety of sports and always watched her favorite teams, her number one being the UNC-Tar Heels.

At a young age, Ann was active in Girl Scouts. She completed high school and attended the North Carolina University of Greensboro, but she passionately loved UNC-Chapel Hill. She briefly lived in Florida, but returned to Greensboro and began her career in nursing at Wesley Long many moons ago. She spent the last years of her nursing career at Twin Lakes Retirement Community, in Burlington N.C. She loved nursing and thought it a wonderful profession.

Ann could be sassy and stubborn, but she was loyal and loving to those she cared about. She will be dearly missed, but family and friends are happy she is no longer suffering and are forever grateful to have had the opportunity to love her. Until we meet again, rest well, Ann Nisbet.

As requested by Ann, there will be no formal funeral. In lieu of flowers, the family ask that donations be made to the Cancer Center at Wesley Long Hospital in Greensboro, N.C.


  • At Ann's request, no formal services will be held.

We saw "Aunt Ann" on visits to Greensboro and will miss her. We especially appreciated her efforts to join in some activities the last few years even while she endured cancer treatment. We last visited with her when she met us for dinner at Libby Hills in December. She was often concerned about and protective of her big brother Harry including phone calls and delivering food that she had prepared for him even while she had her own struggles with health. I appreciated her help years ago in arranging to have a priest participate in our wedding, which very much pleased my mother.

Ann was my neighbor for twenty years; although I moved away five years ago we remained friends. I sent her flowers to cheer her up the week before she left her home for the last time. Ann remained positive in spite of her declining health. We shared many laughs over the years and some good meals too! She loved my fish and I loved her lima beans!! I miss her. She was well loved.

To Ann’s family-
I worked with Ann for many years in Burlington and we remained close following her retirement- unfortunately the last couple of years we have only kept in touch by phone rather than personal visits. I have met a few of her relatives over the years, but unfortunately it was usually associated with Ann’s illness. I will miss her dearly. I am thinking of the family at this time and wish you peace and comfort.

If there is a service or memorial to be scheduled, I would love to know.
