My love goes out to Nannie Sue's family. She was such a significant part of my high school memories such as cheerleading, dancing, spending nights together, joking about boyfriends. Bubba and Frank treated me like a sister and her parebts were so good to me. My entire family loved this lady with her warm, mischevious smile. I will cherish her forever. God bless this lovely Family!

Back in the 60's, Nannie Sue, Sissy Wilkerson, Sandra Binford, & I all went to Smithdeal-Massey & ended up being roommates at the Westover Hills Apts. My mother was a Hite from Lunenburg, but married & moved to Mecklenburg where I grew up. I hadn't seen Nannie Sue in years & was so saddened to hear of her passing. She was a very sweet & kind person & had such a pretty smile. My sincere sympathy to all of her family. Margaret Ann (Martin) King
