Nannette Grimes, beloved wife of Mimi McKennan, daughter of Nada Lowry Grimes, and mother of bird-son Makeeba Waddles, departed this life Saturday, Feb. 10, 2024. She was preceded in death by her father, William Randolph Grimes; and many beloved pets. 

Nannette grew up in Loudoun County, Va. She lived and worked as an attorney in Frederick and Talbot counties in Maryland.

Always ready for new challenges and ways to help others, Nannette had recently obtained the necessary training and licenses to pursue a new career as a financial advisor in Lewes. Nannette loved the beach, all living creatures, art, music and all things unusual and unique.
