Nelda graduated from Bernice High School then pursued a degree in nursing at Northwestern State College. Instead of a career in nursing, her life led her to become a dedicated homemaker. She devoted her time to her husband, children and church. She cherished "coffees" with her friends, sewing, walking with a group of ladies, and tending to her flowers. She will be greatly missed by her loving family and friends.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Swartz First Baptist Church "New Building Fund".
