Nita was born June 18, 1939 in Marshall County, TN to Murray Gordon and Mable Elizabeth Lynch Cherry. (both deceased) She grew up in Lewisburg, TN and was a graduate of Marshall County High School.

She had a SECRET Security Clearance and was a Certified Professional Secretary. She retired to Dothan in 2013 where she volunteered at Flowers Hospital and Catholic Social Services each week. Nita was intensely loyal and beloved by those who knew her, a mentor to many of her “Baby Engineers”, an avid reader, world traveler and a member of Covenant United Methodist Church in Dothan.

Very sad to hear of Miss Nita's passing. She was a lovely woman and so enjoyable to talk to. She came into my bookstore just about every other month since 2015. She would spend an hour or more sharing her love of books and knowledge of life each visit. I don't know what ailment she passed away from or if it was just age alone, but do know without a doubt that she had all of her memories and knowledge. She would constantly test herself with her memory and never failed with her book titles and authors. She always spoke fondly of her children and grandchildren. She will definitely be missed in life and at my bookstore. She was a joy to talk with and I feel honored to have had the opportunity to know her. Margaret Todd with Maggie's Used Books, Dothan, AL
