Nelda was born Nelda Mae Huckabay in Dimmitt, Castro Co., Texas, on November 30th, 1929. Her father, BB Huckabay was a Baptist preacher, and as a result, Nelda moved often while growing up.

After her beloved Sonny passed away in 1989, Nelda worked for several years as the bookkeeper for the Hood County Senior Center. Before moving to Oklahoma in November of 2019, Nelda lived the previous two years in The Oaks Assisted Living Community in Granbury.
