Donarex and Janabeth, so very sorry for your loss. Nelda was a very special lady. My deepest sympathy and prayers to you all.

Big was one of a kind and loved by so many! She will be missed.

Nelda was always a breath of fresh air any time you saw her and you could always count on her contagious smile brightening your day. She truly loved life and the people whose paths crossed her. Julie, my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family as you remember this giant lady and the tremendous impact she made on all who were fortunate enough to know her. I will always feel blessed for having had the opportunity to share a part of life with Nelda.

Nelda worked with my Mom Patty Zahn at First National Bank for many years ! I grew up down at the Bank after school I would go get Snacks for every one! I Loved Nelda, She was a Special Lady ! So sorry for your loss!

So sorry to hear of Nelda's passing. Prayers and condolences to all the family!

Julie, I'm sorry for your loss. Have many memories getting together in your LFD home with friends to study Senior English (or plan our mock business bankruptcy). Your Mom's sweet laugh is still easy to remember. May the Lord's peace comfort you and all of your family.

Jimmy and I alway loved going to Ruidoso together and cheering on the wildcats with Nelda and Billy. She alway had a smile on her face. She was such a positive and gracious friend. So sorry for your loss .

We were blessed by Nelda's smile, laugh,and generosity. I loved her. My girls and I have precious memories and will remember her always. Loss is so hard and I'm so sorry Donarex.♥
