Obituary

Nancy Jean Krisle Tabor of Nashville, TN, and formerly from Springfield, TN, went to be with Jesus on August 29, 2016 at the age of 88. Born at home on April 26, 1928 in Springfield, TN, she was the daughter of the late E.M. "Sam" Krisle and Ruth Lee Krisle. She graduated from Springfield High School in 1945 and from Cumberland University in Lebanon, TN, in 1950. Following college, she taught English at Greenbrier High School until she married on April 20, 1951, and moved to Bell Buckle, TN. As the wife of a pastor of churches in Tennessee, Alabama, and Kentucky, she served her Lord by being very involved with church activities for many years including leading WMU, GAs, Acteens, and teaching Sunday School. She had a beautiful singing voice and was active in multiple church choirs. She had a servant's heart and cherished opportunities to help others through food, friendship or just being there to listen. She cared about every person she met and loved them with her Father's love. Her favorite things to do were to spend time with her family (six children), to faithfully pray for others, and to share Jesus with everyone she encountered.

She was preceded in death by both her parents, Sam and Ruth Krisle, and also her first born child, Stephen "Steve" Jennings Tabor.

In addition to her husband of more than 65 years, Paul Jennings Tabor, Nancy is survived by five birth children - one son, Mark and wife Connie of Lawrenceville, GA; four daughters, Pat and husband Scott Dakunchak of Suwanee, GA, Nancy "Nan" and husband Terry Goins of Franklin, TN, Paula and husband Bill Hall of Nashville, TN, and Sherry Tabor and "adopted" daughter Lisa Hudson of Hanceville, AL; grandchildren Cresta Tabor, Brett Tabor, Lauren Tabor, Ryan Tabor, Jacob Goins, Hannah Goins, Graceanna Hall, and Faithlyn Hall; great-grandchildren Knox Tabor and Stephen Tabor.
