A creed that served her well for 96 years.Erma was preceded in death by her parents, Tom and Dora Nail, and brother, Bob Nail.

Once a booming cotton community with a population approaching 600, Nitta Yuma is now home to about 20 souls who wouldn’t consider living elsewhere.But itty bitty Nitta Yuma also is unique. It had electricity before Vick
