Nell was born November 22, 1921, in Charlotte. She graduated from Central High School in 1940, and married her sweetheart, Jack, on July 7, 1940. They were married until his death in 1986.
Nell loved being wife, mother, homemaker and hostess. She was talented in sewing and needlework and was a member of the Sew and Sews at church. Nell had accrued 12,000 volunteer hours crocheting hats for the preemies at CMC Main. She made Christmas stockings, afghans, and Raggedy Ann dolls.
Our family meals were never complete without her creamed corn, pound cake or pecan pies.
Most importantly, Nell was devoted to God and served Him in her church, thus instilling Christian values in her children.
