I am heart broken over Nellie's death. She was married to my Dad in 1952. Over the years we became very close. We couldn't visit but talked often and kept each other updated on family. Rest in peace sweet Nellie. Love Donna

Look in the book of definitions under the phrase good people and you will find a picture of Nellie Mae. The woman did not have a mean bone in her body. Everybody was family, she always treated you as if you were one of hers. You will forever be missed.
