Oct. 16, 1949 to March 29, 2020

Marie “Nanny” W. Brittain, 70, of Morganton passed away on Sunday, March 29, 2020 after a period of declining health.  Born on October 16, 1949, she was the daughter of the late James C. Walker and Nellie Loree Costner Walker.  Nanny was a devoted mother and grandmother who loved her family dearly.  She worked for 27 years at Drexel Heritage and then worked for Britthaven Nursing Home as a CNA.  Nanny enjoyed reading and listening to Bluegrass, but she especially enjoyed spending time with the grandchildren and collecting clocks.

Nanny is survived by her daughter, Diane Brittain; grandchildren, Chris Burris (Holly), Joshua Carswell, and Amber Carswell; great-grandchildren, Deanna Burris, Allyson Burris, Paisley Woody, Tesla Woody, and Alena Carswell; brother, Thomas Walker (Karen); a number of nieces, nephews, and extended family; and special friend, Dwight.

In addition to her parents, Nanny was preceded in death by a sister, Judy Walker.

A celebration of Nanny’s life will be held at a later date.

Sossoman Funeral Home and Crematory Center is assisting the family with the arrangements.

The family of Miss Brittain would like to express their appreciation to Burke Hospice for the compassionate care shown to Nanny.
