Nancy Wainwright, 78, died November 29, 2016.

Ms. Nancy Wainwright was born April 19, 1938 in Somerville, Tennessee. At an early age, Nancy professed her faith in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, at Pulliam Chapel Baptist Church in Somerville, Tennessee. She was educated in Fayette County Jefferson School. Moving to Memphis in 1956, she later joined Bethlehem Baptist Church under the leadership of Rev. Q. C. Billops, and later under Rev. O. C. Collins Jr., where she served faithfully until her health began to fail.

Nancy loved to sing in the church choir and cook Sunday dinners for family and friends. She worked for over 20 years at Memphis Furniture and 17 years at St. Joseph Hospital. She received numerous awards for her outstanding service.
