Her quilts won numerous awards through the years at the State Fair of MS; each of her grandchildren have received a quilt for their wedding gift. Mrs. Vick was a faithful and dedicated member of West Kemper Baptist Church until she was physically unable to attend. She was known to her family as Mamaw Ree and was referred to by most of her caretakers as “Mamaw”. Mrs. Nannie married into a family of 15 children, who have all passed away now, and she was the last remaining spouse of all 15.

The family suggest memorials be made as donations to Liberty Baptist Church Cemetery Fund or to the Gideon’s International in lieu of flowers.

The family would like to give their heartfelt love and thanks to the staff of North Pointe Rehab for their loving care of her for the last four and a half years.
