    Deepest sympathy to all of Nellie’s family I haven’t seen Nellie for many years but when I think of her I remember her with that big laugh she always greeted me with. She was a very kind hearted person I think she would have given you the shirt off her back..if she knew you needed it more then she did. I can imagine she is very happy tonight to be with Lawrence again. Our condolences and prayers to the family…God Bless

    So sorry to hear about your Mom……..I remember my grandmother Tessie and grandfather Gene talk about Nellie often. Had the chance to meet Nellie one day while I had my dad in town for therapy after his stroke. She was a sweet lady. Keep the memories for they cannot be taken away.

  9. Pamela & Brian Foley

    Nellie was a kind-hearted, loving woman who took care of everyone like they were her own. You had to watch her, though, that mischievious laugh often meant she was up to “no good” in a fun way. She was never quite the same when she lost Lawrence, and I’m sure she is happy to be reunited with him at last. Our condolences to the family, cry for your losses and smile with your memories of fresh-baked goodies and loving arms that were always open and welcoming to all who knew her.

    How very blessed I feel to have been born into this wonderful family. I am truly greatful that Nellie was my grandmother. I wish I could be there with all of you to mourn her death and celebrate her life. I will be mourning on my own and celebrating the wonderful memories she left behind. I know that Grampy was there to meet her with open arms . The love the two of them had for each other is something I will carry with me always. One of the many memories that I will cherish of my grandmother is when I would sing to her. She used to love it when I sang to her. ” Give me a kiss till pay day”, she would say. Or she would hold her arms out and say,” come into these loving arms and give me a great big hug. I am proud to be her granddaughter and hope that she is proud of who I have become. To all of my family, I love you and miss you. Nanny I will always carry your memory in my heart.

  20. Betty Rhodenizer

    I had known sweet Nellie for many years, through her membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon). She and her dear, late husband were a special and loving couple, always with a ready smile and hug when greeted. I know that it is a sad time, and a time for grieving, for her family and friends, but be at peace, knowing that she and Lawrence (and children) are now joyfully re-united, and we can be truly happy for them. My love, condolences and blessings to all the family.

  27. Marjorie Rhyno

    Connie and Larry and families, my Mom told me that Nell passed away. I was shocked, sad and happy all at the same time. Shocked to realize so much time has gone by, sad for the grief and tears that many will shed at their loss and happiness, that I had the pleasure of knowing this special lady. Nell always had a ready smile and hug for everyone. Nell and Lawrence had a special love that makes you happy for her reuniting with him at last. Knowing Lawrence I can just imagine Lawrence saying ” What took you so long.” I can also imagine Nell’s answer as well, ” I had things to do and people to take care of.” She will be sadly missed, but Nell and my Aunt Sheila were very close and I would love to see the hugging and laughter when these two get together again. My thoughts and prayers are with you, and as many have said, keep your memories close.

  28. Stephen & Patricia Whynot

    We are so sorry for the loss of Nellie. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family.
