Mary Nelle White Magill
July 2, 1923 - September 19, 2012
MARY NELLE WHITE MAGILL, 89, of Atlanta, GA, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, September 19, 2012. Mary Nelle was born July 2, 1923 in Jackson, TN to the late Robert Newsom White and Nell Fite White. She was preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, William "Bill" Sharp Magill Jr. After graduating from Jackson High School, Mary Nelle attended Stephens College in Columbia, MO, earning an Associate in Arts degree majoring in Aviation in June, 1943. Mary Nelle met Bill Magill, Jr, her future spouse while he was stationed as the squadron commander at McKeller Field in Jackson, TN, flying as a Civilian Contract Flight Instructor for the Army Air Corps, teaching primary flight training during World War II. They were married on October 1, 1943. In 1945 they moved to Long Island, NY, where Bill flew out of LaGuardia airport for American Airlines in their North Atlantic Military Contract Division before transitioning to regular passenger carrying flying on DC-3 and DC-4 aircraft. In 1949 the family moved south to remain in Atlanta when Bill joined the newly formed Southern Airways as a Flight Captain, rising to Senior Vice President of Operations and successfully overseeing the airline's growth as a major regional carrier and entrance to the jet age with DC-9 aircraft in 1966. While her children were growing up, Mary Nelle was a busy wife and mother, supporting her husband and children in all of their interests and endeavors. She was particularly proud of being requested by the President of Southern Airways to travel to Paris to select new uniforms for the airline's flight attendants flying the new jets in the late 1960's. These handsome uniforms were highly praised both for their stylishness and crisply functional appearance. Once her children were grown, Mary Nelle renewed her lifelong interests and involvement with antiques and interior design. In 1977, she opened an elegant shop named "Tamia Designs" on Irby Avenue in Buckhead in Atlanta. The shop specialized in interiors, antiques, gifts and accessories and featured everything from Oriental designs and genuine antiques to beautiful reproductions. For the next 28 years, Mary Nelle traveled often and widely with her husband, Bill, in Europe, particularly England and France, both sightseeing and selecting beautiful antiques and French decorative arts for the shop and her many discerning customers. Mary Nelle, known affectionately as Cher to her family, was an active member of the First Baptist Church in the 1950's-1960's, before moving her church affiliation to Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church in the 1970's, where she remained a member and devout Christian until her death. She was also a member of the Capital City Club and the Wood Valley Garden Club. She is survived by her four children: William "Bill" (wife Nancy) Sharp Magill III, Laurie (husband Carroll) Magill Earp, Robert "Bob" (wife Louise) White Magill, and Karen Cauthorn Magill; her seven grandchildren: Kimberly (husband Eric) Hobdy Kuziak, Shannon Ansley Magill, Patrick Magill Earp, Melissa (husband James) Marie Smith, William "Bill" Sharp Magill IV, Courtney Llewellyn Magill, and Hayley White Magill; and her great granddaughter Caroline Anne Kuziak. The family is very grateful for the kind and loving care that Cher received from her caregivers, most especially Taahirah Hartwell who was her close companion and friend for the past five years, and for the assistance of Hospice Atlanta. The family will have a private memorial service to celebrate her life with Dr. Charles Qualls at Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church, Peachtree Road, Atlanta, GA. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to The Salvation Army or the charity of your choice . Please send online condolences to www.csog.com.

"But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles..." Ps 40:31.
by John Gillespie Magee, Jr.
Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth
And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings;
Sunward I've climbed, and joined the tumbling mirth.
Of sun-split clouds--and done a hundred things
You have not dreamed of-
Wheeled and soared and swung
High in the sunlit silence. Hov'ring there,
I've chased the shouting wind along, and flung
My eager craft throught footless halls of air.
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue
I've topped the windswept heights with easy grace
Where never lark, or even eagle flew.
And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod
The high untrespassed sancitity of space,
Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

Eleanor Anne Posey Hall, "Grandmother," passed peacefully Thursday, October 21, 2010 from the effects of Alzheimer's disease. The daughter of Bessie Laster Posey and Thomas Berry Posey, Eleanor Anne was born in Birmingham, Alabama on March 26, 1921 - a birthday that she shared with her beloved husband Graydon. Eleanor and Graydon began a life journey together on August 9, 1941 with a simple at-home wedding. From that day forward they simply loved and cherished each other for more than 69 years. Together Eleanor and Graydon won a world war, built a Christian home, established the passenger air service industry, and left to their children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren a legacy of love, honor and service. They are "the Greatest Generation." A professional homemaker and helpmate, Eleanor strove for perfection with elegance and grace, putting the needs of family and friends first. She was the most energetic cheerleader, the most determined advocate, the most daring adventurer, and the most genuine Lady of The South. Eleanor's career as wife and mother took her across five states with Graydon. She made each new stop "home" for her family, becoming active in community, Church and school affairs of her children. She inherited the capacity to trail-blaze from ancestors that were pioneer families active in transportation in North Alabama. Her paternal grandfather established a wagon train freight service across Alabama in the 19th century, and her maternal great-grandfather ran a local transfer service around the Birmingham area during the same period. Eleanor was most "at home," however, in Atlanta and there she will be laid to rest at Arlington Memorial Gardens. Eleanor leaves to journey alongside Graydon their family -- Judith Posey Hall and her fiancé Larry Ellis Lanier, Graydon Hall, Jr. and his wife Elisabeth Meyers Hall, grandchildren Scott Harrison Russell and his wife Mandy Holland Russell and daughter Sara Eleanor Russell; Ashley , Jonathan Graydon Hall and his wife Jessica Cie Hall and daughter Madison Elisabeth Hall.

MILLER, Clifton CLIFTON MILLER Sunday, April 18, 2010, Captain Clif Miller, a full fledged member of the Greatest Generation, finished his life here on earth. While he was a part of our lives he accomplished many of his goals but he was always planning the next project either for himself or for someone else. He never gave up on life or its experiences. He was born in Stephenville, Texas, in a log cabin on a very cold December 8, 1917. He was not expected to live but no one knew just what a fighter he would become. He set his goal of becoming a Pilot at the age of ten and fulfilled that dream. He attended John Tarlton College in Stephenville, Texas and then joined the Army Air Corp before World War ll. He became ill during the class and was in the hospital for eight weeks and did not graduate with his class so he was discharged from the Army Air Corp. He then joined the National Youth Association and took flying lessons until he heard that the would allow Americans to serve as instructors. He borrowed $50.00 from a friend, married Jennie Lee Rice of Ranger, Texas, and then headed to Canada with $15.00 In his pocket. This was his first time to ever leave the state of Texas. After the United States entered WWll he left the RCAF to join the US Navy. He instructed for a while and then with the formation of VR 11, a transport squadron, he flew his dream, a four engine airplane. He was based in and flew throughout the South Pacific. When the war ended he started his own airline called NATS for Naval Air Transports with a leased DC-3. He flew this airline as a barnstormer until the lease was terminated on his airplane. In 1949 was formed and he was one of the first pilots hired. Throughout his career with Southern he was known to be the person who would stand up for his crews and lead the battle for better working conditions. He was awarded by the Federal Aviation Administration the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award for 63 years of successful flying. He was a small man in stature but a huge man when it concerned his beliefs. He spoke his opinion and never backed down if he believed it was morally right. Clif loved his family and was proud of his children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and his friends. He was special to many people as he did his best to help those who were willing to help themselves. He believed in education for all and he contributed to help make it possible. His adopted children in Mexico attend school because of his belief that all can excel when given a chance. Clif was preceded in death by his Mother, Jewel Savage Miller, his father, William B. Miller, his first wife, Jennie Rice Miller, his son Billy C. Miller, his sister and brother in law, Inez and Glen Childers.

Miller, his granddaughter Cruse and her husband Kevin, his grandson and his wife Amy, and his granddaughter Jennie L. Workman. His great grandchildren include Miller and Nikolai Melnikoff, Faith Miller, Harper, Jane and Christian Miller, and Jackson and Noah Workman. He is also survived by his faithful protector and companion, Prissy his rescue dog. He was also very much loved by his wife's family, Sally Mauck, mother-in-law; sister-in-law Marchita Mauck, brother and sister-in-law Eddie and Janice Mauck, nephew Brad Mauck and his wife Jodie, and niece Mandi Mauck and her fiancé Chad Tubbs. Clif cherished his friendship with his WWII flying partner, Bob Fults and his wife Ginny of Dallas TX, and his many supportive friends from Southern Airways through the years. He loved his Mexican family of Juan and Salud Bernal and their children, Claudia, Adrian, Aaron and Sophia. He loved and appreciated those who helped in his care, Francisco and Marisol Perez and their family. His "horse friends" Brian, Susan and Shelby Reimer were part of his extended family.

I have the sad news to report that Thomas Hough passed away this morning at approximately 3 a.m., February 14, 2009, after a long battle with cancer. He had been in the hospital for the last 3 weeks and grew steadily worse. My mother and sister were with him at the time of his passing and he went quietly into the Lord's arms. We feel that it is a blessing that the Lord called him on because he had suffered for the last few months.
Uncle Thomas has requested to be cremated and we will honor his request. We plan at this time to hold a Memorial Service at Salem Heights Baptist Church, Hwy 84 East, Laurel, MS 39440 at 10:30 a.m., on Saturday, February 21, 2009.

I am so very sorry to report this sad news, but our dear Flight Attendant friend, Grover Hammonds passed away last Wednesday in Atlanta. Many of you will remember Grover from our days of commuting to DTW.
He had been ill with cancer for quite a while and it finally took him from us.
He and I were in the same Southern Airways starting in April 1974. There were 24 girls and Grover was the only guy. .... Grover was only the 3rd male Flight Attendant hired by Southern and he was proud to be the first African-American one too!Class at
I am so, so sad to learn that we have lost this beautiful soul. I will always remember that twinkle in his eye--that cute sense of humor and that precious grin.
I know that he had been ill for awhile and now he at peace and with God---sadly, another Flight Attendant Angel to watch over us...
I know also, that we will all feel the same great loss. My heart goes out to his beloved Jo Ann, all of his friends and family. I don't think I have even known a sweeter, kinder person.
With deepest sympathy and friendship,

Capt. Darryl Snider Memorial Information
It is with great sadness to report that NWA Capt. Darryl Snider passed away Sunday at the Harris Methodist Hospital in Ft. Worth, Texas. His family and friends were with him during his final hours. Darryl had been in a coma since Feb. 28 after suffering a terrible fall at his home. Our prayers and thoughts go out to Darryl's wife Felesha and their family.
Influenced by a large and loving family that included a father and brothers in the airline industry, Darryl always wanted to be an airline pilot and was hired by Republic Airlines in June 1985. Most recently, he was a NWA 757 captain and was serving as an ALPA executive vice president. Many pilots and ALPA employees had the pleasure of knowing Darryl and his persistent smile and wonderful sense of humor......
