Nell F. CROSSAN Obituary
Nell F. Crossan, age 91, passed away June 5, 2018 at Rosewood Rehabilitation Center in Reno, NV. She was born in Sebeka, MN on July 20 1926. The daughter of Einard and Ida Waha, Nell graduated high school in Sebeka and attended business school in Bemidji, MN. During a vacation to West Palm Beach, in 1949, she liked it so much she decided to stay and began working for Hattie Carnegie in Palm Beach. She later became a secretary at Hillcrest Memorial Cemetery and eventually joined Raymond James and Associates in Palm Beach where she became a stock broker and financial planner. After retirement she became involved with tutoring children in math and reading at local schools. She was a long standing member of First Lutheran Church in West Palm Beach. Nell is survived by her daughter Gail DeSoto, son-in-law John DeSoto and granddaughter Audrey DeSoto. The best mother a person could want. You will always be in our hearts.
