A reception will follow in the church parlor. Nell was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on September 27, 1909, the daughter of the late Luther McGinty and Maude Jackson McGinty, She is preceded in death by her parents, her husband Carl A. Petersen and her four brothers, Luther J. McGinty, Arthur J. McGinty, Wallace H. McGinty, and Paul McGinty.

Nell was employed for several years before World War II as a secretary at the U. S. Army Quartermaster Depot in Charlotte. When the war began, she volunteered to serve overseas with the military as a civilian secretary. For the duration of the war, she was secretary to the Commanding General of the Seventh Air Corp. in Hawaii. After the war, Nell became secretary to the late Moravian Bishop Herbert Spaugh in Charlotte. When Nell later married Carl Petersen, she was warmly welcomed into his family by his grown children, Patricia Hippen, Margaret Clements and Carl A.

Thus she became the elder member of two loving and attentive families. Special thanks are given to Nell's niece Lynda McGinty for her loving care during Nell's later years.
