Mom

Thank you for all your kind words with my previous post. I am not going to respond to each comment there as I usually would but thought I thought I would share the edited obit for our mother instead. 


"She was fierce in most every possible way-fierce in her devotion to family and friends, her opinions and personality. If you didn't know where you stood with her, you weren't listening. Wife of Joe for 63 years, mother of 2 daughters Anne (Joe), Jan (Doug) , grandmother of Matt (Kyoko), Mitch (Laura), Will (Helena) and great grandmother of Pip. Nell was preceded in death by Joe, her parents and three siblings and survived by her brother Bob , cousins, nieces and nephews from her large family. She attended ...... High School and ....... University. 
Not known for her culinary skills, Nell was however, famous for her signature chocolate fudge cake commonly referred to as "Nan Cake" which she made for every family birthday and gathering. She was gifted at sewing, rug hooking, upholstery, cross stitch and knitting; particularly Christmas stockings for everyone. And, if you were the recipient of one of her crocheted pot holders, you'd never use another. She loved nature, bird watching from the bay window and could identify flowers, plants and trees. A good day for her was digging in the dirt. 
Nell was the Girl Scout troop leader when her girls were young and was a life-long volunteer for many groups and causes. She was well traveled, loved music, dancing, theater, and an occasional ribald joke which would elicit giggles. But, when she found something truly funny, she would explode with a big distinctive laugh like no other. 
Nell's daughters would like to thank Tierra & Stacey, Pam & Angel and Bradina for their kindness, compassion and care this last year. Due to the current pandemic, there are no immediate plans. A memorial service will follow at a later date. The family requests any memorials be made to. . ."

I will miss her terribly but hope that she and Dad are reunited, and dancing to Glenn Miller songs in the clouds like they did in their kitchen nearly every night!

  1. Hugs and Peace, and take the time you need to mourn. From experience, you will have moments of grief, and then guilt ridden because there is a sense of relief from the care giving.

    1. When I told her long time dear friend about her passing I told Peggy I hoped they were dancing. Immediately she added "In the kitchen!" They had a speaker to their stereo in the corner of the kitchen and danced there nearly every day. Even if they were going out dancing they still spun few time in the kitchen

    1. Powerful Herbal treatment is 100% guarantee for HSV cure, the reason why most people are finding it difficult to cure HSV 1 or 2 is because they believe on medical report, drugs and medical treatments which is not helpful to cure HSV and hasn't proved any sign of helping. Natural roots/herbs are the best remedy which can easily eradicate herpes forever. I never believed it until I was helped and cured of my 16 months genital herpes with natural herbal medicines from Dr OGU Patrick. Where other medical prescribed drugs and treatments failed, Natural herbs helped saved me from Genital herpes permanently and i am so grateful for this. You can also get help from this great and powerful herbs can also contact Dr OGU Patrick through via this email: drogugusolutionhome@gmail.com , Text or call him via : +1 719 629 0982

  23. Oh Anne, I just wish I was there to give you a big hug, a social distance hug. IT is so hard and then they are gone. That is hard also.You and your sister worked so hard to keep her in her home and did everything you could to make her comfortable. She was blessed, you should have no regrets. This is going to be hard, it is over, but not over.

  24. I’m here to testify about what DR. ISIBOR did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. ISIBOR on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. ISIBOR prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. ISIBOR assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HIV, ALS, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. ISIBOR for help via email} drisiborspellhome@gmail.com
