A native of Wisconsin, she was a recent resident of Holden, La. She liked needlework and crossword puzzles and in younger years, she enjoyed working on her family's farm and in the garden. A one of a kind woman, she lived life to the fullest and will be missed by all who knew and loved her.
She is survived by a daughter, Charlotte Nelson (Vick); a daughter-in-law, Sandra Nelson; a niece, Jeanne Lesperance (Jim); a granddaughter, Tracy Burr (Ed); four great-grandchildren and two special people, Stephanie and Brian Wicker.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Nelson; a son, Darryl Nelson; a sister, Ruth Cvecko; a brother, Lloyd Kalbes; a granddaughter, Kerry Nelson and nieces, Karen Krueger and Julene Pence.
Services will be held in Wisconsin at a later date. Brandon G. Thompson Funeral Home of Louisiana is assisting the family.
