Although I only knew Nellie in the later years of her life, I found her to be a lovely lady of grace, gentleness, intellect, and a bit of steel. Nellie was the author of several minor published childen’s books in which she highlighted her great-grandchildren as characters. Nellie would have been a marvelous teacher. She, as well,loved, rescued and cared for animals. I am sure St. Francis has put in a special word to the Lord on her behalf! I recall one day, once she resided in the nursing home, I asked her if there was anything she needed or wanted. A girl after my own heart, she responded, “A big baked potato with real butter and all the fixins.” Rest in peace with your Dale, dear lady. Respect always, Cheryl
