It is with a heavy heart and saddened spirit that I share with you the passing of Whitt Nottingham, husband of Laura Nottingham and associate member of MCEA Chapter 75. Whitt passed away on June 16, 2020 at home surrounded by his family. He was 69 years old. Whitt has been ill for some time, receiving care from hospitals and rehabilitation centers but spent the majority of his time at home under the care of Laura and her daughter Laurelle with the support of home health nurses. We will miss him greatly. I know you will keep Laura and her whole family in prayer.
Funeral services have been entrusted to March Funeral Home. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the services will be televised by Zoom. I hope you all stay well, and be safe.
I share everyone’s fear and concern about the COVID-19 also known as the coronavirus. I remain in contact with state and local authorities and will pass along any updates pertaining to our work.

This pandemic is something that’s not been seen in many of our lifetimes. However, I’m confident if we follow the directions of health care professionals, we will collectively and safely overcome the coronavirus.
