Nora Ann was known to all her friends and family as “Nanny.” She babysat all her grandchildren and showered them with love. Their pictures adorn the walls of her house like wallpaper.

She could cook up a meal in minutes for family and friends. She loved chocolate candy and cookies with a passion.
Nora Ann and her late husband, Bob loved to go camping. They took some of the grandchildren with them on all their trips to Big Sandy or Devil’s Fork.
Nanny was especially proud of her family and their accomplishments. Her late daughter, Bobbie Ann had been a member of Eastern Star and her son, Bob became the North Little Rock Fire Chief.
Nanny was a fierce caregiver at heart and took care of all her family when they were sick. She kept a vigil at the hospital until they were able to go home.
For the last 5 years of her life, Nanny was shut-in but still able to stay in her own home with help from primary caregiver, granddaughter, Phyllis. Nanny leaves behind a legacy of love and devotion.
