Nation was born to (Jimmy) James W. Thornhill and Verma Jones Thornhill, February 24, 1934, in the Old Bethel Church in the community of Jayess, in the rural area of Walthall County! She was the youngest of five siblings of her family.
She married James E. Nations October 17, 1953, and was a loving mother of two sons. In her early years, she was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star of the Pine Chapter No. 371, located at Enon. She was a lady with energy to spare who loved to cook, quilt, crochet, listen to music and dance to have a good time! She was always cheerful and full of life, with laughter and smiles! Some of the other things she really enjoyed were growing flowers, and also being with family at the Thornhill reunions and Christmas.
She was loved by so many and in return, she loved her family, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, along with all her nieces and nephews, cousins and many friends through her lifetime.
Even though her memory was taken by Alzheimer’s over the past few years, she will forever be with us in our memories, with all the good times that were shared!
“Time which is taken for granted and holds no boundaries, but those memories are forevermore impressed into our souls.”
Mother will be laid to rest by our Father at Enon Cemetery, and will join her family at the Gates of Heaven.
She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, James E. Nations; brothers, Vernon and Dan Thornhill; sisters, Emma, Rennie Thornhill and John and Diane Jones of San Antonio, Texas; mother-in-law and father-in-law, Ervin and Netta Nations and brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Frank, Harold, Rabbit, Betty and Jerry Short, Bennie, Lucy and Pat Nations.
Survivors include sons, (Jay) James E. Nations and Kenneth L. Nations and wife (Kitty) Mary B. Nations; grandchildren, Toby and Jessica Nations, Tasha and Jr. Bales, Joshua Nations and Cody and Beth Nations; twelve great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren; sister-in-law (Bobbie) Barbara R. Thornhill; brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law Dewitt Nations, Donald and Sandra Nations and Grace Nations and numerous nieces and nephews of the Nations, Thornhill and Jones families.
We would like to extend a special thanks to Dr. Brantley Pace and all the staff of the Lawrence County Nursing Facility, who took great care of our mother during her years that she was a patient there. We would also like to thank the Lawrence County Hospital staff for their caregiving in her last days.
Following the funeral service, there will be a gathering for all of the family and friends at the Dinan Baptist Church Fellowship Hall, just a short 3-minute drive from Enon down Highway 583. The address is 8 Dinan Church Road. If you would like to bring or give a donation of food or drink, please contact Felisha Thornhill Foil at 601-303-0634.
