“I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”    2 Timothy 4:7

At the end of my earthly journey, I want each of you to speak of me as you have always done. Don’t forget to remember the good times, laughter, and fun. Share the happy memories we've made. Do not let them wither or fade. Sometimes our final days may be a test, so remember me when I was at my best.

Our lives have a beginning and an ending. Debra Ann Nash was born on April 20, 1957, to the union of Leola and Earnest Fairell, Sr. in Brunswick, Georgia. Debra Nash received her formal education at Glynn Academy High School in Brunswick, GA. She accepted Christ at an early age and was united with Emmanuel Baptist Church. In her leisure, she enjoyed dancing, listening to music, watching her favorite old TV shows, cooking, shopping, and spending time with her family and friends. She was employed by FLETC as a Supervisor. She also worked for Sea Island and SeaPak.

Debra Ann Nash departed this life on April 1, 2022. She was preceded in death by father, Earnest Fairell, Sr.; mother, Leola Fairell; brothers, Lawrence Fairell, Earnest Fairell, Jr., and Lewis Fairell; and granddaughter, Tashara Culbreath.

She leaves to cherish her memories: children, Leslie Tyson, Patrick (Marsha) Fairell, Jameka Culbreath all of Brunswick, GA, and LaShebia Jones of Charlotte, NC; stepdaughter, RaShanda Culbreath; partner, Earnest Culbreath of Brunswick, GA; sisters, Ernestine Bell of Riverdale, GA, Shirley Cash and Carolyn Fairell  both of Brunswick, GA, and Patricia (Marlon) Richardson of Fayetteville, NC; grandchildren, Mekeyshea, Patrice, Tynisha, Tyrek, Zion, Jakayhia, Jazontae, Qua’ishia, Patrick, Jr., Angel, Lamarion, Mirical, Jarmis, Kralith, Payton, DeAnthony and Brea; 18 great-grandchildren; a special son, Curtis Thomas; several aunts; several uncles; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
