Eva Nell Richburg Obituary

Eva Nell Richburg, age 81, passed away peacefully in her home on March 26, 2024, surrounded in love by her family who sat at her bedside. She was a devoted wife, mother, and gran who loved her family more than life itself.  She had many hobbies throughout her life but her most favorite was crocheting, antiquing, a love for travel, but most of all she loved spending time with her grandchildren.

Richburg.  They settled in their lifelong home in Hurley, Mississippi where they raised their three children with much love and devotion.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Alonzo Fairley and Virginia Ann Harvison Fairley; brothers, James Clyde Harvison, and Denwood “Honey” Fairley; twin sisters, Della and Stella Fairley.

Richburg; children, Danny (Jana) Richburg, Mark Richburg and Cyndi (James) Pierce; grandchildren, Katie Gavin, Jessica Richburg, Leslie (Austin) Bush, Emily Richburg, Troy Richburg, Kimberly Burkley, Koty (Lindsey) Pierce, and Taylor (Stone) Spradlin; great grandchildren, Riley Gavin, Kyler Gavin, Levi Bush, Josiah Bush, Eli Richburg, and Maggie Richburg; numerous other relatives and friends.
