She was educated in the Nottoway County Public School System, where she graduated from the Nottoway Training School in 1942.  Early in life she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and joined Cedar Hill Baptist Church.  She was a dedicated and faithful member until her health began to fail.  She served in several ministries of the church: Usher Ministry, Missionary Ministry and as a member of the Willing Workers.
Nannie was employed by the Kavit family of Richmond, VA, Camp Pickett and Heritage Hall of Blackstone, VA from which she retired.
