Obituary of Nannie Belle Greer

Chilhowie, Va.


Nannie Belle Greer, age 83, passed away the morning of Sunday, December 9, 2018 surrounded by her loving family at her home in Chilhowie, Va.


Belle was a devoted and always smiling wife, mother and granny. Her husband James, of 66 years, said she was the best person in the world. Mrs. Greer was active with her family – she loved to knit, cook and can. She mowed the yard until she was 70. She loved her church, Macedonia Missionary Baptist, and went as often as she could. The world lost a lot on Sunday. Belle’s family and friends will certainly miss her smile and gentle way.
