Nell was a special lady. We square danced together for many years in the Solo and Diamond Jubilee clubs in Lubbock. She was a lot of fun and loved to sing along on our square dancing bus trips. She loved her family totally and was so proud of all the grands.

Although our paths only crossed for a brief time, I am so glad to have met Nell. She shared many stories about growing up on a cotton farm, working as a telephone operator, and every day life. Her daughters were her favorite topic. She never missed an opportunity to say how proud and how much she loved each one of them. What I will remember most about Nell, is how not only her face,but her whole being lit up when her daughters walked into the room. No Christmas tree ever shown brighter.
