Avis Eliza White Bryant

January 13, 1938July 12, 2021

Avis Eliza White Bryant was born on January 13, 1938, in St. Joseph, Louisiana. She retired from Nellis Air Force Base as a civilian worker and then worked with special needs children for the Clark County School District. Avis loved cooking and baking. Her entire family could never get enough of the delicious meals she prepared. Everything from her fried chicken to her homemade German Chocolate cakes were delicious!!! Like her mother Eliza, Avis always took pride in the way she dressed. She had to have the perfect attire with the purse, shoes, and accessories to match.

Avis worked as a civilian at Nellis Air Force Base. After she retired, she decided to work with special needs students for the Clark County School District. Avis especially loved working at Variety School.

Avis Bryant departed this life peacefully on Monday, July 12, 2021. She was preceded in death by her loving mother Eliza Reed, her father Joseph White, and her aunt Bertha Gardner. The family would like to acknowledge the passing on Avis’s cousin Lee Ester Marshall-Ellis who passed just days after Avis.

Avis leaves behind to cherish her memory; her only child Elenor Morgan (James) of Las Vegas, her grandchildren LaTonya Nero, June K. Nero-Jackson (Damien), both of Atlanta, Georgia, Christina Mosley (Aaron), James L. Morgan (Serena), and Quincy Morgan of Las Vegas, Nevada, 10 great-grandchildren: Someyah, Kyree, James K., Kayla, Morgan, Benjamin, Dylan, Ari, Naomi, Taylor, her great-great granddaughter Carter, and a host of relatives and friends.

Avis, or as her grandchildren call her, Momis, is and will always be truly loved.

I am honored that I had the opportunity to create shirts for your memorial Momis. We never got to meet one another but the way June speaks about you, I know we would have been 2 peas in a pod lol. To the family, I will continue to keep you all lifted on prayer because I, too know what it’s like to have a family member go through Alzheimer’s. I love you all!

Ms. Avis will surely be missed! The seeds she planted in her family will keep her memories alive. Her granddaughter June Nero-Jackson is a prime example of Ms. Avis’ love and legacy. She instills in her family all of the things she learned from her “Momis.”
