Nellie was a special person, we got to know each other during high school. She was always friendly and had a smile on her face. She loved her family very much and was proud of them. I know she had her problems in life just like all of us do but she over came them. I can remember when she told me she joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter- Day Saints, she told me she has never been so happy. I know she has had health problems but I was so happy to see her at our 50 year class reunion in 2017, she had a blast there. Nellie will be missed my prayers are with her family.

I met Nellie once when she was very ill and will always remember the love and graciousness which she projected. She took care of the elderly, including my mom, and it is easy to understand that they would feel safe, comforted, and happy in her presence. May you spend a joyful Christmas with Jesus, Nellie. Thank you for sharing your light on Earth.
