Jennie Iverson Nelson Passed Away Dec 19th

Our neighbor and friend, Jennie Nelson, passed away December 19th.  She went to the hospital a few days earlier with pneumonia.  
The funeral is Monday December 28th, at the Wolf Creek Methodist church.  Visitation at 10am and the funeral at 11am with lunch afterward. 
Jennie would have turned 99 on December 31st.  She was a good friend, a neighbor and was exceptionally nice to us and our mother.  You can find more information at this link.  Her husband, Emil Nelson, grew up on the farm we live on, one of the John Nelson 21 children.  
Jennie's hands were always busy with crocheting, knitting or other crafts.  She loved to write poetry, enjoyed collecting her family history and local history and shared it with our local history society. 
  Our sympathy to the family. We will miss Jennie.
