Obituary

NANNIE BELL CHILDS (nee Smith) was born December 8, 1930 in Lilesville, NC. She departed this earthly life on March 24, 2019. She was preceded in death by her husband Donald, her four children Donald, Harold and the twins Denise and Darlene, mother Tillar Richards, sister Betsy Deloatch and nephew Melvin LeGrande.
Nannie affectionately called Nan moved to Philadelphia at an early age and worked for many years at the Slim Jim Factory. She was a dedicated employee and rewarded on the day of her retirement with a limousine ride home from the company. During her retirement years she enjoyed attending church, spending time with family and friends and walking on the Avenue. She was a Strong lady, enduring all the pain of losing her children and many close relatives. To know Nan was to Love her.
As a resident of Manor Care-Yeadon, she left a lasting mark on the staff and her fellow residents. The administrators and staff always said “Nan was so sweet and pleasant”. Always active, vibrant, feisty and willing to help those that couldn't help themselves. She loved her outings to the Dollar Tree, the buffet and being pampered, getting her nails and hair done. Above all she looked forward to the holidays and Evelyn (cousin) picking her up for dinner and family time.
She leaves to cherish her memory: five grandchildren, Donald Jr., Rashon (Mooche), JaJuan (Joanne), special granddaughter, Raschelle (Tariq) and Rasool; six great grands, one great-great grandson; one devoted niece, Lisa Johnson (Ty); one uncle, George Smith (Ruth); and a host of cousins and friends.
