Donna Carlene Nalls
Donna Carlene Nalls, 67, of Quinlan, Texas passed away peacefully Tuesday evening, Oct. 22, 2019 at Vitas Hospice Unit at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center of Carrollton surrounded by her daughters, Brandy and Vicky, and her granddaughter, Jamie. She was born Feb. 1, 1952 in Tarrant County, Texas to parents Ocie Elliott Holleman and Virgie Lee Dunn.
Carlene is preceded in death by her husband, Ronnie Leon Nalls, her parents and two brothers, Ocie Norman Holleman and Michael Wayne Holleman. She is survived by her daughters Brandy Larson and husband Lochwood, Vicky Mobley and husband Kenny, Tina Khwaja and husband Shayan; grandchildren Ryan, Jamie, Conrad, McKenna, Ethan, Adam and Zaki; siblings Sherri, Carolyn, Stormy, Jeniece and Sandy along with many other family members and friends.
She held many jobs throughout her life from working at Olan Mills as a young woman to becoming a lab technician at Fiberite in Greenville, Texas. Her love of photography led her to later own and operate a glamour shot portrait business. In her later years, she and her husband opened Amazing Grace Full Gospel Church giving her new purpose, where she proudly served as a bible teacher and pastor's wife.
Carlene loved being Ronnie's wife, an adventure in itself! She treasured her three daughters and her grandchildren.
She absolutely loved traveling, especially, taking long road trips because she enjoyed the journey just as much as the destination and capturing it all on film. She relished life's simple pleasures - spending time with her family and friends, a good meal, playing games, and watching her soaps! She described many of her friendships as, "They're family!" She will be missed by many.
Carlene's Celebration of Life will be held at 1:00 P.M. on Saturday, Nov. 23, 2019 at Ingram Funeral Home in Quinlan.

The things that come my my mind first is theirs doors were never ever closed to anyone even if those people may not have had the best motives. Bit was always worth the risk for her. But we almost always got tickled when bv Ronnie was about to lose. The first time I played golf in on the wii I hit a hole in one purely by accident. We laughed about that most every time we got together. I spent a lot of time with and there isnt once they would tell me no if I needed something. We almost always played dominoes sh er n I had a running joke about if I got really sleepy I'd start tryin to throw the game cuznhe wouldnt quit if he was losing but me n her both could go 24 hi hours on bloom bl...ocks. I could go on n on but I'm sure there are so many more folks with things to share. They both were 2 of my very best friends and I cant believe how much I miss them ! Love and prayers to all of you girls and your families! If you ever need an ear or a shoulder any time day or nite. 318-579-0221Read more
