Nina Jeneva (Wallace, McFall) Haynes lost her battle to cancer on Saturday June 7, 2014, at age 69 in Tacoma, Wash. A long time resident of East Hoquiam, Nina lived in Gig Harbor, Wash., with her second husband at the time of her death.
Born in Praise, Ky., on July 29, 1944, to Virginia (Odell) Mullins and Lee Roy Wallace, Nina had seven siblings: Teddy C. Wallace, Jimmy H. Wallace, Darrell D. Wallace, Ivis (Bunny) L. Salyers, Malvean Wallace, Roy (Dean) D. Wallace and Glenita (Gail) G. Wallace. At age 15, Nina married Gerald McFall. They relocated to Washington state where they soon began building their family of six children. Nina owned Pampers Daycare Center for decades in Aberdeen where she cared for many local children who remained close to heart into their adulthoods. She and Gerald fostered numerous children together that they enjoyed reconnecting with in their later years, and they celebrated 50 years of marriage before he preceded her in death. Nina was a creative talent with many hobbies. She was a gifted writer, painter, potter, gardener and genealogist, having successfully traced her family ties back to Pocahontas. Nina loved traveling and gift-giving.
Nina is survived by her husband, Jon Haynes of Gig Harbor, Wash.; her six children and children-in-law: Edwin (Angela) McFall of Aberdeen, Wash., Shirley (Ron) Norton of Mountain View, Wyo., Anita (Lee) Onasch of Hoquiam, Wash., Bebe (Josh) Jelineo of Longview, Wash., Derek (Susan) McFall of Clintwood, Va., and Kyna (Jon) Wilson of Montesano, Wash.; her stepson Austin (Rachel) Haynes of Auburn, Wash.; as well as her 17 grandchildren, 1 expected grandson, 1 step grandson, 3 great grandchildren and 1 expected great grandson.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Gerald McFall of Hoquiam, Wash.; her mother, Odell Deloach, father Lee Roy Wallace and stepfather Clyde Deloach, all of Clintwood, Va.
Nina wished to have no service. A private viewing with immediate family was arranged. Arrangements are being made by Edwards Memorial in Tacoma, WA. A special thank you to Franciscian Hospice Home in Tacoma, Wash., for their delicate and heartfelt care and support offered to the McFall and Haynes families.
“Meeting Nina was a dream come true for me,” says her devoted and loving husband, Jon Haynes.
