I enjoyed visiting with Nell over the last 4 years while she was in the home in Middleville. The first 3 years as her elder and the last year as her calling Pastor. Her wonderful sense of humor was always a joy. She will be missed. May your whole family find comfort in our Lord Jesus Christ.

Remembering our wonderful Aunt Nell, she always had
a smile on her face and seemed always happy to see us.
Thinking of you Bonnie, Mary, Tim, Vicki and Denise!
May God comfort you all!
