Towner, Nettie Louise Youmans, 94, passed away peacefully Friday, May 6, 2016 in Richmond, VA. Louise was born in Bonifay, FL in 1921, graduated from Seminole County High School in 1939, and graduated from Frazier- Ellis Nursing School, Dothan, AL in 1942 where she became a Registered Nurse. She joined the Army Nurse Corps (1942-1945) serving in France during WWII. After the war, she worked as a nurse on board Seaboard Airline Railroad trains running from New York to Miami for one year.

Louise was a longtime resident of Orange Park, FL where she was a member of Orange Park Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed cooking, gardening, needlework, “antiquing”, but her greatest joy was spending time with family in her role as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, niece, grandmother, and great- grandmother.
