Dorothy E. Nelson

Our beautiful, beloved Mother passed into the arms of her Savior Jesus on September 19th, 2013. Born on December 31st, 1916, to Bertha and John Miles in a farmhouse near Turton SD, she met her lifetime love, Milo Nelson, in Mankato MN where she attended Business College. Married in 1936, they had three children: Miles Nelson (Bonnie), Yvonne Nelson Breen (Walt), and Kenneth Nelson (Carol). The family lived in Mankato until 1948 when they moved to Vancouver WA. Following Milo's passing in 1992, Dot moved to the Seattle area to be near family. She is missed by her children, nine grandchildren, sixteen great-grandchildren, and many friends, all grateful for God's gift of her.

Her funeral is 11:00 Wednesday, September 25 at St Stephen the Martyr Catholic Church, Renton; interment at St James Cemetery, Vancouver Washington, Thursday,

September 26th at 2:00 p.m.

May God bless and keep you, Mom
