Obituary for Melissa Vining

Melissa  Vining
Melissa (Herrington McCall) Vining passed peacefully at Fernandina Beach Nursing Center in Fernandina Beach, Florida on Wednesday, July 22, 2020. She was 95 years old.

Born in Baxley, Georgia to Doll Frances (Miller) and William Monroe Herrington on March 30, 1925, she grew up on their farm and was forever a country girl. She loved gardening, growing flowers and feeding and watching hummingbirds and songbirds. She openly admitted she was as stubborn as a Georgia mule she rode when she was a kid. She had a phenomenal long term memory and very rarely forgot a family member or friend's birthday.

Melissa and her parents moved from Baxley to Lake County, Florida in 1944. There she met her first husband, Lewis McCall, Sr. They had six children and lived in Lake and Marion County for many years. She returned to Georgia in 2002 to be near family in St. Marys. She loved attending family reunions in Baxley and going the Woodbine Opry to listen to Gospel and Bluegrass music. Her favorite charity was the Salvation Army so she was thrilled that St. Marys had a nice resale store.

Melissa resided in Quality Health (now Fernandina Rehab and Nursing Center) from 2014 until she passed last Wednesday. She had several favorite nurses and CNAs and let them know it.

She was preceded in death by her parents, the father of her children, Lewis McCall, Sr., her second husband, Monroe Vining and many beloved friends.

She is survived by her son, Lewis McCall, Jr., Glenwood, GA, daughters Linda Weimann, St. Marys, GA, Lillian Fore, Glenwood, GA, Kathy Bailey (Herbert), Erin, TN, Loretta Bailey, St. Marys, GA, son Marvin McCall (Robin), Zephyrhills, FL, daughter TerriLee Sporcic, Brant, MI, 17 grandchildren, 29 great grandchildren and 4 great-great grandchildren.

She will be sorely missed by everyone who knew and loved her. We are blessed to have had her with us for so long.
