Nellie was a Christian and in past years had attended Victory Church, now Roots Church, in St. Clair, MO. She had lived an active and full life and enjoyed living on their farm. She enjoyed spending time outdoors, gardening and raising beautiful flowers. She loved animals and liked watching her husband and children ride their horses in horse shows.
