Nita Tidwell Sanders

August 30, 1938 — March 17, 2024


Mrs. Nita Tidwell Sanders, age 85
 Waverly, TN passed away Sunday, March 17, 2024, at her home. She was born August 30, 1938, in Bon Aqua, TN. 


Nita lived a life defined by love, kindness, and selflessness. As a homemaker, she dedicated herself wholeheartedly to her family, creating a warm and nurturing environment that was always filled with laughter and love. Though Nita's official title may have been "homemaker," her role extended far beyond the walls of her home. She was the heart of her family, the glue that held everyone together through life's ups and downs. Her unwavering support, gentle wisdom, and comforting presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing her.


In addition to her dedication to family, Nita found joy in simple pleasures such as watching NASCAR races and exploring new recipes in the kitchen. Her passion for cooking brought loved ones together around the table, where stories were shared, memories were made, and laughter echoed through the air.

Mrs. Sanders’s wishes were to be cremated and no public services are scheduled.
