Nettie was a sweet, caring  and loving person.  She touched many lives with her kindness and generosity.  She was dearly loved  by her family and her numerous nieces and nephews.  She was witty and funny, always entertaining the children  and making everyone laugh.  Nettie liked to read, cook and write eloquent poetry.
