Nina Joyce Shirley Will


Nina Joyce Shirley Will, born in Mobile Sept. 5, 1945 and a resident of Fairhope, passed from this life into the everlasting glory with Jesus Christ her Savior, July 8, 2013.

The family wishes to thank the staff and caregivers of Gentiva Home Health and Hospice for all of their loving care.

A quiet graveside service was conducted by Dr. Jerry Henry, her pastor at First Baptist Church of Fairhope, at Memory Gardens of Fairhope on Friday, July 12, 2013.

Honorary pallbearers were Collin Harris, Ryan Gerrells, Sean Gerrells, Steven Stanley, Chris Miller, Adam Lineberry, Terry Carraway, Robert Harris and Chris Stanley.
