Lillie Nash passed away February 10, 2014 at Bayfront Hospice.
Born May 1, 1916, in Union Springs, AL, she married her longtime sweetheart, George Miles Nash, in the early 1940’s.
The happy couple moved to St. Petersburg on January 1951, where she became a housewife and mother. Always the entrepreneur, Lillie sold flips and potato pies in the neighborhood. She also provided daycare for children of all ages until she and her husband purchased a number of properties and became landlords. Her husband preceded her in death in 1983.
Lillie attended God’s Anointed Ministries International where she had been a faithful servant since 1962, and was the church mother.
Lillie loved to cook and bake, and one of her favorite hobbies was going fishing. She became an avid Tampa Bay Rays fan and wouldn’t miss a televised game.
She is survived by her only son, Harrison Nash, daughter-in-law, Sara, nine grandchildren and had 20 great-grandchildren, with one preceding her in death.
She will be missed by many family and friends. Wake and visitation will be held at Smith’s Funeral Home, 1534 18th Ave. S., Fri., Feb. 21 at 7:15 p.m. Funeral services will be held at Reach the Unreached Church, 1315 18th Ave. S., St. Petersburg, Sat., Feb. 22 at noon.
