George W. Miller Jr.
May 14, 1930 - December 15, 2021
Longtime member George Miller, Jr died on December 15th at his home. George was 91 years old at the time of his death and he and his wife Eula have been members of Duke Memorial for many years. George was a well-known lawyer and politician in our community and was a regular presence in the balcony of Duke Memorial when he was able to attend. We extend our love and prayers to his wife of 63 years, Eula Miller, and their children and grandchildren. A memorial service celebrating George's life will be held at a later time.
Even as we mourn our earthly loss, we cling fast to the hope and eternal love we find in Christ Jesus, the Light of the World, whose dawning we prepare to celebrate once again this Christmas.
James Wendell Hull
July 22, 1935 - November 18, 2021
Church member James Wendell Hull died on November 18, 2021. Wendell was an avid photographer and family man and will be remembered for his sense of humor and kind heart. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ann.
Wendell was an officer in the USAF for 20 years. During that time he served in the War in Vietnam and was awarded the Bronze Star medal. Upon retirement he worked diligently at the University of Alabama in Birmingham as Assistant to the Dean of the Business School. He was popular with students and staff alike. Later Wendell and Ann relocated to NC. He will be missed by many but particularly by his two daughters, Kristen Fooshee and Julie Witte, and their families.
A service of death and resurrection will be held at Duke Memorial. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Good Samaritan Fund at Duke Memorial.
As we grieve, we rejoice in the hope that we have in Christ Jesus, the comfort of the Holy Spirit, and the promise of eternal love with God and all the saints.

Nina, age 100, beloved wife and mother passed away peacefully at home in Durham on Saturday, November 13, 2021, while surrounded by her loving daughters.

After graduating she joined the American Tobacco Company Accounting Department where she worked until a few years after she married the love of her life, Adrian M. Carroll, in 1949. She was an active member of Duke Memorial Methodist Church and in the Church Circle and the Church Nursery. She loved gardening, Duke and Carolina Sports and spending time with her family. Nina was the light of so many lives. She touched so many people with her love.

She is also survived by her nieces, Betty McDermott (Mike) of Kansas City and Ann Broadway (Michael) of Pittsboro; her nephews, John Rutledge (June) of Harrisburg and Charles Carroll (Alice); as well as numerous grandnieces and nephews.
To her excellent Duke Hospice team and caregivers of Home Instead, thank you so very much for the love and comfort you provided Nina throughout her last months.
