Eulogy by Constance Combs

̶ Honoring our mother

Just a slip of a girl
All legs and some mischief,
With a few lads she twirled –
A husband she was seeking.

Sixty-five years with one spouse
Six children in nine years
She reared, worked, made a house
Sparse means, blood, sweat and tears.

Nine grands, nine greats, three great-greats
Nana’s camera ever ready
Teacher, steno – church bulletins made
Keeping the family’s bank steady.

Survived spouse, sons, one grandchild
Never crediting herself much
We bear witness to triumph over trials
A legacy few leave as such.

To Mama and Nana with love,

̶ four daughters, eight grandchildren, nine great grandchildren and three great-great grandchildren

The family will gather for a private memorial service at a time to be determined. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Nell’s name to the following organizations:
