Barbara Jean Nunnally Turner
(1947 - 2 Oct 2005)


Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Barbara Nunnally Turner was killed in an automobile accident on Sunday, October 2, 2005.

   She moved to Hampton prior to her sophomore year and graduated there with the Class of 1965, but she began
eighth and ninth grades at NNHS with us.  All who ever knew her will remember Barbara's bright smile, cheerful
disposition, and sweet spirit.  It is only fitting that she be included in our pages.

From David Whitley ('67) of VA - 10/03/05:

... This morning at 0430, I got a call about our administrative assistant, that she had a wreck last night
and was killed. I've been working with her for almost 20 years. I was her "gofer", for lack of a better
term. Almost every day she would call me to help her deliver supplies, carry a box or do some kind
of stuff. She was probably the last one I talked to Thursday before I left..........


   Oh, David, I'm so sorry for the loss of such a good friend!

   (As he hadn't mentioned her name, I had no idea of whom we spoke.  I was astonished to receive a call
from Sandi only moments later.)

Phone Call from Sandi Bateman Chestnut ('65) of VA - 10/03/05:

   I started to send you an email, but I just had to call instead.  Do you remember Barbara Nunnally who
went to school with us for a while?..........

   Of course.  Who could ever forget that tiny little doll baby of a girl?

   Thank you so much for calling, Sandi.

My deepest sympathy for your loss.
Barbara was a good friend and will be missed very much.
Jim Warren (Smithfield, VA ) - October 4, 2005
My deepest, and heart felt condolences to Barbara's husband and family. She will be greatly missed by all of us who worked with her here at Surry Power Station.
Maureen Mayer (Surry, VA ) - October 4, 2005
 I am so sad and cannot believe that sweet Barbara is no longer in this world. I keep seeing her smiling face and hearing her voice throughout the halls of this Admin. Bldg.. To Charles and all of Barbara's family - please accept my sincere condolences.
Donna Hines (Surry, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
Hey Barb, know what? A big part of missing you is gonna be not getting a call from you saying, "Hey Dave, can you bring those packages up to my cube?", or "Dave, the fruit is at the loading dock, could you grab a box?" Over the years, we both knew that my "NO!", meant I would be right there. And who's gonna correct my time sheet for me every week? I guess eventually somebody else will be able to do all the things you did for us, but nobody can ever replace your laugh & that sweet smile. Sorry Barb, I don't think I'll be going by your cube for a while. We loved you & will forever miss you. Dave
Dave Whitley (Newport News, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
We send our sorrow to the family in the loss of your wife, mother, grandmother and sister. Barbara had a giving heart and was always doing her volunteer services to help others representing Surry Power Station Volunteers. We will greatly miss her smiling face, especially in the coffee area for the early morning coffee run.

May God bless the family and her friends and may God give us all comfort in the days ahead knowing she is still smiling happily with her Creator now. We are here for you, if we can be of help in anyway.
Belinda & Donnie Mason (Smithfield, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
To the family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I work for Dominion and that's how I got to know Barbara. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.
Olivia Washington (Aylett, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
Our sympathy, love and prayers to all of Barbara's family and to her husband Charles.
I will miss Barbara's exceptional smile and her warm hugs. She was a dear friend and I will miss her deeply. I feel blessed to have known her friendship. May God Bless and Comfort all who know and love her.
Tracy & Fred Deziel  -  October 4, 2005
Charles take great comfort in knowing that she loved you more than life itself. Her whole world revolved around you.
Barbara - rest in peace my friend. You are and will be forever missed. Liz
Liz Hinton (Hampton, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
You will be missed. I have known you for many years of working at Surry and you always had a smile and hello for me. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I hope they can find comfort in knowing you had many friends.
Anna Lyman (Wakefield, VA ) -  October 4, 2005
Barbara will be sadly missed by Paula and myself. Her smile always brightened a room when she entered it. My condolences Charles.
Leroy Phillips (Surry, VA ) -  October 5, 2005

Come, Ye Disconsolate

Words by Thomas Moore; alt. by Thomas Hastings
Music by Samuel Webbe

Come, ye disconsolate, where'er ye languish.
Come to the mercy seat, fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish;
Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.

Joy of the desolate, light of the straying,
Hope of the penitent, fadeless and pure!
Here speaks the Comforter, tenderly saying,
"Earth has no sorrow that heaven cannot cure."

Here see the bread of life; waters flowing
Forth from the throne of God, pure from above.
Come to the feast of love; come, ever knowing
Earth has no sorrow but heaven can remove.
