    I am saddened to read of Nellie’s passing. I worked with Nellie at A.B. Dick for 3 years when I was just starting out. She was always cheerful and extremely understanding and helpful to all she worked with. She was a pleasure to know both professionally and socially. I moved to BC about the same time that she did and had the opportunity to reconnect with her in Kelowna several years ago. My condolences to Nellie’s family and many friends

  • Janet Harris says:

    I am so sorry to hear of Nellie’s passing, she came from the same area as my husband Curtis and when we discovered her and Gerry here we had some very nice times together, but some time ago now. I had been thinking of her lately but am sorry not to have followed up on it. Especially want to let Mary know that I am thinking of her.
