Elizabeth Ann Reagan, 88
OBIT - Reagan original.jpg

Elizabeth “Dib” Ann Reagan, born July 9, 1933 in DeKalb County, left this Earth on Feb. 26 to be reunited with her sweetheart of 69 years, Nathan Coolidge Reagan — who had just gone home to be with the Lord four months ago.

Aside from her husband, she is preceded in death by her parents, Barbara Carmean Cantrell Poss and Hershel Poss, and her brother Melvin Poss. She became a resident of Warren County as a child. She and Nathan eloped on Christmas Day of 1952 and returned home to start a family. She was affectionately known as the angel of her large family and she truly loved them more than anything. She adored her grandbabies and was a loving mother figure to all who knew her. She was a faithful Christian woman, devoted wife, and enjoyed sewing, crocheting, gardening, and humming gospel music. She was a longtime member of Newtown the Baptist Church of Christ.

Together Elizabeth and Nathan had eight children Paul (and Penny) Reagan, Rita (and Tony) Ward, Gina (and Joe) Blair, Penny (and Carl) Hayes, Darlene (and Tommy) Bryant, Hal (and Bonnie) Reagan, Lisa (and Russell) Mason, and Scott Reagan, who are all residents of Warren County. She is also survived by 14 grandchildren Shawn Reagan, Bobbie Jean Waggoner, Andrew Reagan, Nathaniel Reagan, Joshua Ward, Jenny Norris, Amy Blair, Ashley Giddens, Cody Durham, Callie Hitchcock, Jacob Reagan, Cade Reagan, Evan Chisam, and Erin Watts, several step-grandchildren, as well as 23 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. She is also survived by her siblings Opal Land, Reed Poss, Jane Young, Harold Poss and Donna Young.

Visitation will be held at McMinnville Funeral Home on Tuesday, March 1 from 3 to 7 p.m., and Wednesday, March 2 from 9 to 11 a.m. with funeral services to follow at McMinnville Funeral Home at 11 a.m. with her burial following at Newtown Memorial Gardens. Condolences may be made at
