Obituary

Nina J. Speight, age 80, passed away on Saturday December 21, 2019 at New York Presbyterian -Lawrence Hospital in Bronxville, NY. She was born March 9, 1939 to Samuel W. Hopkins and Annie M. (Collins) Hopkins in Bessemer, AL the third of seven children. She graduated Dunbar High School with honors in Bessemer, AL in 1957 and attended Oakwood University in Huntsville, AL where she majored in Mathematics. Inspired by her grandmother, Mrs. Nina Carter, she moved to White Plains to pursue a new life in 1959. She married Julius A. Speight in April of 1962. She worked and attended Tefft Business School before starting a career at Nationwide Insurance, NY Telephone Company, and retired after a 30-year tenure at AT&T in 2002. Nina was an avid follower of sports, politics, and displayed remarkable culinary skills which she loved to share with her family and friends.
