I've known Nubia for nearly 40 years thanks to being friends with her son Roe. She always treated everyone like family. Always smiling and giving everyone hugs! The world was blessed to have her and was left better off because of her.
Brian and Karin Beck, April 6, 2016 Nubia was a gracious woman, great mom, wife and sister. I pray she rests in peace and is in the presence and healing arms of our God. I pray all of her children and family find peace and acceptance knowing she is with the Lord

Frances Copeland, April 5, 2016 Dear Family, My heart is saddened by the loss of your precious Mother/Grandmother. I always had a deep respect for Nubia. She was a gorgeous lady, just beautiful inside and out, and she had a way of making everyone feel very special! She was very proud of her children and grandchildren and you could see the love in her eyes when she spoke of all of you! I am Praying for God's comfort blanket around each of you, may you find comfort and peace in knowing that Nubia is no longer suffering, and she is now in the arms of Jesus! God Bless you!
