Nina Hankins Jordan • July 19, 2022



Nina Hankins Jordan, a devout Christian and loving mother, passed away in the early hours of July 19th, 2022 at the age of 57. After her year-long courageous battle with cancer, she died peacefully in her home in Pensacola, surrounded by loved ones.

Nina was born in Dalhart, Texas to William Clyde Hankins and Betty Jane Brennan. She graduated from Tyler Junior College with an Associates of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. Nina touched many throughout her career with patients enjoying her spirited demeanor. In her free time she loved spending time at the beach and watching football, more specifically, the Dallas Cowboys.

Nina was influenced by her family to be a loving and caring woman, always giving her time to others. She balanced work and motherhood effortlessly, showing an unwavering devotion to her children’s lives. She ensured they participated in their travel sports teams year round, never missing a game in attendance. Other families remember Nina for this reason; she took part in every school function opportunity that a parent could.

Nina is survived by her parents; her daughter Savannah; her son William; her sister Lisa; and her two brothers, Billy and Joe.

To honor Nina’s memory, the Pensacola Celebration of Life will be held on the 29th of July, at Liberty Church Blue Angel Campus, 2221 S Blue Angel Pkwy Pensacola, FL 32506. Visitation at 2:00 pm followed by the funeral service at 3:00 pm. Please wear whatever color you prefer as requested by Nina’s family. Flowers, donations, and condolences may be offered at Liberty Church: https://pushpay.com/g/libertybac (direct link to donate)

The Texarkana Memorial Service will be held at the atrium on the First Baptist Church campus (3015 Moores Lane, Texarkana, TX 75503) on Monday, August 29, 2022 beginning at 2PM.
