So sorry to hear of Nellie's passing. She was a sweet, caring, special person. Mom IdaMae) always looked forward to nice cards and letters from Nellie. We always looked forward to seeing her when visiting. So thankful to have gotten to visit with her in her home last October. Kaye VanBaale Roskam

We knew Nellie from her job at the lumber yard. She was always so sweet and such a lady. Pat and Dave Adams

We knew Nellie and her brother Tom through our mutual love of raising Oxford sheep. Whenever we make our way to their farm, Nellie welcomed us with her sweet smile, a hug and glass of iced tea. Her gentle soul made her a mentor for many. We usually left the yard with a couple of good ewe lambs and box of Nellie’s garden produce or apples from the orchard. The world needs more people like Nellie! Journey on sweet soul!

Nellie was always such a gentle and sweet sole. I always saw her smiling and always offering a hand and ear to those in need! She Will always be remembered and hold a place in my heart!
