Our Beloved Mother, Mittie Juanita Etheredge McNair

She was born in McCullough, Alabama on September 24, 1925 and was the youngest daughter of Caleb E. and Mamie K. Etheredge. She passed from this life and went to be with her Lord and Savior on May 11, 2O2O while residing at the Arcadia Nursing Home in Pensacola, Florida at the age of 94. She was a lifelong and devoted christian and a member of Marcus Pointe Baptist Church.
She was preceded in death by her loving parents; her precious sisters, Ellen, Gladys, and Mabel; her loving and devoted husband of 48 years, Edward E.McNair, Sr; and her first born son, Edward E. McNair, Jr.
She is survived by her sons, Steve McNair (Finea) and Gary McNair (Cheryl), daughter, Debbie Hamrac (Jimmy); thirteen grandchildren; thirty-seven great grandchildren; and nine great great grandchildren, that all loved her so very much.

Mother had the most extraordinary smile and had the unique ability to make everyone around her feel good and loved. She carried this precious gift with her even during the last two difficult years of her life and as her memory began to fade, her loving smile never left her. She touched so many lives and leaves behind a legacy of love, compassion, and kindness and her wonderful christian testimony. God continued to use her and her christian testimony up until the day that He called her home, which was evidenced by the large number of nursing home staff that sought her out and came by to see her and share their stories of her love as they cried with us.
