Nell was the oldest and longest living member of the Kentucky Order of the Eastern Star. She was a member for over seventy years.

She is survived by a sister-in-law, Mrs. Sue (Frank) Dickison and many nieces, nephews, cousins, and a dear friend, Phyllis Knipp, who was like a daughter to her.

Special thanks to her nieces, Judy Arthur and Sharon Davis who oversaw her care and nephews, Chad and John Sloan and the late Jim Sloan who were faithful in their frequent visits.

So sorry for your loss prayers for all. Nell was a very special person I have known her my entire life. Grew up next door to her and as the obituary said she was the most caring and helpful person you could have known. She was always the most kind and loving person. Thank you Chadi and John for bringing her to the cabin a few years ago it was so good to see her and spend some time with her.
