Nevada was my friend and employer and employee. We always enjoyed being together on trips we took, and working together. She was a great lady in most every thing she undertook, if you were sick she would make you well, if sad she would brighten your day, even if you were in financial troubles she would help that too. My life is much richer for having Nevada's love and Knowledge sheared with me. I will miss her greatly, rest in peace Nevada you certainly earned all that heaven can give.
My love Friend Delores Crisco Larkins

So sorry to hear of Miss Nevada's passing. She was a great lady and a very good friend to my late sister, Nellie Watkins. She was always a very classy lady that I loved and respected. My thoughts and prayers are with her family. I am sure she is in a better place and I know she will surely be missed by everyone who knew her. Lean on the Lord & he will help you through the days to come. Joseph & Terry Watkins

Nevada was a special lady and had a sweet spirit, I worshiped with her at both Friendly Community and Burgaw Baptist. She loved the Lord and was faithful in attendance at church before she went to Stonebridge.
