Ms. Nunley was a beautiful woman who had a gentle spirit. I first met Ms. Nunley at Balboa High School where I was a student in 1979 until 1982 and she was a hall guard. Whenever I would try and leave school and cut, she was all ways there to get me back on the right track to go to class. She would talk to me with her gentle voice. As years went by our churches began to fellowship more and I would see Ms. Nunley. By this time my family knew her and I would always tell them and others that this is the lady that kept me straight in high school! When I got the news that Ms. Nunley passed away it hurt me because it's like losing another mother that cared for me to this day! Even though she is gone from my presence, she will never be forgotten in my heart. I will deeply miss her, especially in the choir. I am a member of Bayview Missionary Baptist Church and sometimes we sing combined with Ms. Nunley church Cosmopolitan Baptist Church. May Ms. Ola Mae Nunley RIP. And may GOD continue to bless her daughter Mary and family. As Rev. A. Ray Gentle would say, "Stay with the Lord no matter what happens." Amen.

Ola and I met at School of the Arts in 1996 when I was a part time math teacher. We had many great talks in between class periods where she would stand in the hallways and have such an amazing presence. After leaving SOTA in 1999, we made sure to stay in touch.

We would get together for birthday dinners twice a year at Fisherman’s Grotto...I would drive from San Leandro and pick up Ola from her home and we would reminisce about fond memories of the past and share many a laugh.

And she was sure to always make one of her amazing banana puddings or peach cobblers for my birthdays which are in May. Any of you who have tasted Ola’s deserts know exactly how amazing they are.

Ola always said a prayer before we ended a phone call or were about to leave in person...she would pray for us and the world and to remind ourselves how God gives us so many blessings...

We had a saying back at SOTA....“it’s just not a day without Ola Mae!” I would say that cheerfully and she would smile that bright smile of hers...

Ola...you have been a blessing in my life...as you have to so many others...

Thank you so much for your friendship...

I will miss you terribly...

Rest In Peace Ola...

Blessed I am, to have known one of God’s Prayer Warriors, Sister Ola Mae Nunley.

A PROUD mother and a DEAR friend, always willing to lend a helping hand.

She was a woman of integrity standing on GODs WORD.

She had a Smile of HOPE, living out GODs plan, knowing her steadfast intuition of discipline was a essential element of her nurturing spirit as GOD guided her hand.

Her compassion and soft heart was the foundation of kindness, showing us LOVE and affection with a listening EAR.

A woman of Substance, Simplicity, and Beauty remaining humble never compromising her Faith, by way of First giving honor to God, in Prayer everyday.

Now, Golden Girl expand your wings and fly high, as you have earned your place.

Rest Easy my friend, and “Thank you for showing me how to Pray without CEASING”.🙏🏾

I am still processing this loss. Ms. Nunley was the most quiet and sweetest mother. She always made me feel at home when I came to visit and showed great love for my kids. I will miss her soft spoken voice and heartwarming smile. Mary and family I will continue to keep you in prayer🙏🏾 Rest in Heaven 😇 Ms. Nunley you will be truly missed.

My heart is heavy with grief at the loss of Mother Nunley. She was one of the sweetest souls I’ve been blessed to know. Mother made me feel so warm and loved every time I saw her in church or at any function. It’s women like her who have made our people proud. It’s Christians like her who make ministry a joy. May God bless and keep her family.
