Nell Warner Dismuke
BIG CREEK – On Nov. 29, 2010, Nell Warner Dismuke, cradled in the love of her family, went to rest in the loving arms of God after a valiant and lengthy battle with cancer. She was 78 years old.
Nell’s lifelong home was Big Creek, Miss., in Calhoun County, where she was born July 22, 1932. Her father and mother were the late A.V. (“Whis”) Warner and the late Ruby Lee “Honey” Carter Warner. In addition to her father and mother, Nell was preceded in death by her eldest brother, A.V. Warner Jr.
Nell was deeply devoted to her children and her grandchildren. They have always known that, if needed, there was nothing she would not do for them if it was at all within her power. She is survived by her son, Randy Dismuke, and his wife Linda of Madison, Miss.; and by her daughter, Lisa Dismuke McLain, and Lisa’s husband Mark of Madison. Her grandchildren, who loved their “Granny” dearly and will miss her greatly, are Caleb Dismuke and his wife Kelly of Flowood; Robin Dismuke of Madison; and Marlee Grace McLain of Madison. Nell was immeasurably grateful for the loving fellowship she shared with her surviving brothers: David Warner and James Sidney Warner of Big Creek, and John Warner, of Calhoun City.
Nell also leaves behind a large extended family with a host of nieces and nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews, cousins and in-laws, including sister-in-law Gwendolyn Vance Warner, about whose lives she had an abiding interest. She loved all of her family, and, in return, they were always so kind and gracious with “Aunt Nell”/Nell. Their loving and welcoming spirit provided her with a deep and comforting sense of home. Her children are especially grateful for the loving and amiable relationship shared between Nell and their father and stepmother, C.R. and Betty Dismuke, also of Big Creek.
Nell has loved the community and people of Big Creek throughout her whole life. This remarkable community showed Nell wonderful, loving support as she battled her illness over the past five years. She never stopped considering it home and always harbored the hope of return. Any time her illness allowed her to be in Big Creek, her spirit was renewed and refreshed from the homecoming and fellowship she enjoyed there. The benefit the town organized in Nell’s honor in the summer of 2010 meant more to her than she could ever have expressed. There is no better example of the love, generosity, eagerness to help, and encouragement Nell experienced than in that wonderful occasion.
Nell was also the grateful beneficiary of innumerable acts of grace, generosity and loving kindness over the years from people all over Calhoun County, whom she knew from her various walks of life. Nell was a dedicated member of Big Creek Baptist Church, where she served faithfully in many capacities through the years. She was an involved mother when her children were in school and knew many people through that involvement. She graduated Big Creek High School in 1950. She retired from Hillcrest Hospital in Calhoun City in 2006 after 26 years of service in the emergency department and the business office, having first worked at Hillcrest as a nurses’ aide. She loved all of her work at the hospital and when asked in recent years what she had done there, she loved to refer to herself as a “GF,” or general flunky, to summarize all of the various jobs she had done while employed at the hospital. In 2006, co-workers, friends and family recognized Nell’s career of honorable service at Hillcrest with a retirement celebration.
Hard-working, compassionate and immensely capable, Nell reliably responded to the needs around her not so much with words but with deeds. So much of the joy and meaning she experienced in her life she found in simply and unassumingly doing things for others. There was no job which she considered to be beneath her. This modest, quiet habit of helping others where ever she found herself along with her general kindness defined her character. She will be remembered as someone who lived her faith more than she talked about it. One afternoon not long before she passed away, Nell was speaking of her two favorite hymns when she began reciting, and then sang, “Your life’s a book before their eyes. … Do others see Jesus in you?” Jesus could definitely be seen in Nell’s life, and the world is a better place in countless ways, both small and large, for her having lived.
Nell’s arrangements are being handled by Pryor Funeral Home in Calhoun City. Visitation will be at Pryor Funeral Home from 5 until 7 p.m. today, with funeral services at the funeral home at 11 a.m. Thursday. Burial will follow at Chapel Hill Cemetery in Big Creek.
Memorial donations can be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, Chapel Hill Perpetual Care Fund – 762CR308; Big Creek, MS 38914, or a charity or church of choice.
