Oddly enough her memorial is inscribed as "Fanny" yet in all of her correspondence and documentation we have she always is referred to and signs herself as "Fannie".

From the Nashville Banner May 4, 1955

A Life usefully invested in service builds its own monument in a multitude of hears. Such was the life, and such the enduring memory of Mrs. Fannie Moran Ezzell. High in scholarly attainments, absorbed in civic activities, devoted to her church, engaged in political labors pursuant to a deep conviction, she yet found time for club work and the role of gracious hostess in a hospitable home.

She was Tennessee's first Democratic National Committee woman; for a time was Associate Society Editor of THE BANNER. For years she participated in activities of the Centennial Club, the Ladies Hermitage Association, the Belmont Magazine Club, and the DAR. Her passing brings regret to the many who had the privilege of knowing her though these years.
