Hallie (or as she was affectionally called, Nanny) lived a life centered around Jesus Christ. He was the center of her home; Every decision or situation she encountered, she relied on Jesus. She never feared because she knew he was ALWAYS close by.

Nanny was a life-long member of First Baptist Church Leland. She helped deliver the bricks to build the original Leland Baptist Church back in the 1940’s. She served Her Church in many capacities some of which included teaching Sunday School, teaching Vacation Bible School & working in the nursery. She Loved working with the children and always volunteered for an opportunity to teach them of Jesus. She loved her Church so much, she even took the task of cleaning it weekly with her best friend, Ms. Vivian Phelps for many years.
Outside of her Family, Nanny Loved her flowers & vegetable garden. Born with a green thumb she grew the most vibrant Azaleas, the prettiest Pansies and the best squash and cucumbers in three Counties. She spent countless hours in her garden and thrived on sharing the fruits of her labor with neighbors, friends & family. It was the highlight of every Spring & Summer.
