Nelda Myres was a cherished wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend. She was deeply loved and adored by her family and friends, and it was the joy of her day to hear from her children. Nelda was a collector of many things and loved taking on new crafting challenges.
Although she was loved by many, she was loved best by her husband and soul-mate of 64 years, Jake. The selfless love and sacrifice exemplified in their marriage has been a great foundation for their family.
Above all, Nelda loved the Lord with all her heart, soul, and mind. Her family rejoices to know that she is now in His presence in Heaven and has been reunited with those she loved that have gone before her.
For our Mom and Nonnie: We will miss you until we meet again. We loved you to the moon and back.
