Loving Memories of Nellie Mae Clardy

NELLIE MAE CLARDY, the daughter of Lindsey and Birdie {Pollard} Shirdon, was born on December 27, 1929 in Christian County, Hopkinsville, Kentucky. She was the youngest of four children to this union.

NELLIE found the love of her life when she met James E. Clardy. They united in marriage and moved to Indianapolis, Indiana. To this union one son was born, Larry Clardy.

NELLIE was a dedicated and hard worker, having a long work life. She was last employed with Tuchman Cleaners where she retired as a press operator.

NELLIE was a member of Eastern Star Baptist Church and loved riding the church bus until her health failed.

NELLIE was a quiet and reserved, loving woman who enjoyed life. She enjoyed playing bingo, doing puzzles, visiting with her neighbors on the porch at Opportunity Park, celebrating at family functions and talking to her sister many, many, many times a day.

NELLIE MAE CLARDY departed this earthly life on Friday, April 2, 2021. We were blessed to be able to share in her life that span for 91 years, 3 months and 6 days. She was preceded in death by her father, Lindsey Shirdon; her mother, Birdie Shirdon; her sister, Roberta Boyd; brother, Joe Willie; her husband, Mr. James Clardy; and her only child, her son, Larry Clardy.

She leaves precious memories to be cherished by her sister, Geraldine Shirdon Moss; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Service for Nellie will be held, 12:00 pm, Friday, April 9, 2021, at Williams and Bluitt Funeral Home Peoples' Chapel, 5252 E. 38th Street, Indianapolis, Indiana, with visitation held from 10:00 am until time of service at 12:00 pm, all taken place at Williams and Bluitt Funeral Home.

Fond memories and expressions of sympathy may be shared at for the Clardy family.
