Funeral Services for Mrs. Irise "Bay" Porter Nunn, 80, who departed her earthly life on March 20, 2014 at The Health Center of Daytona, will be 12 PM Thursday, March 27, 2014 at RJ Gainous Funeral Home, with Rev. Paula Jackson, Allen Chapel AME Church, officiating. Calling hours are from 11:30 AM - 12 PM tomorrow, (Thurs, Mar 27). "Bay" as she was affectionately known was born in Dawson, GA on April 26, 1933 to the late Posie Porter and Jacob Knighton. Mrs. Nunn was raised from a very early age with strong Christian values and continued to participate in services at The Health Center until her health failed. She completed her early education in the Terrell County School Systems and was a graduate of Carver High School in Dawson. Mrs. Nunn moved to Daytona Bch in 1952, where she met and later married the late Walter Nunn. During this union she became the proud mother of 4 beautiful daughters. Mrs. Nunn was employed at Halifax Hospital as a nurse's aide and retired after over 30 years of dedicated service. She volunteered as a school mom at Bonner Elementary School while all 4 of her children attended there. Mrs. Nunn loved life, she loved the Lord, and she also loved singing and dancing. But dancing was her joy, she was the life of the party at many family functions, where she could always be found on the dance floor. Left to cherish her memory are her four daughters: Hellon Wilson (Ronald), Ernestine Nunn Bethune, Mattie Moore Carter, all of Daytona Bch and Tammy Nunn Haynie, (Reginald), Maplewood, NJ; nine grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; a sister: Annie Doris Christian, sisters-in-law: Mattie Porter, Mildred Nunn, Delores Nunn Turner, Mary Presha; a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends at The Health Center of Daytona. The family wishes to extend special thanks to Halifax Health Hospice of Volusia/Flagler County and the staff at The Health Center of Daytona.
