Mom worked at Southwestern Refining in Corpus Christi, Texas and retired in 1997. In her retirement she was an avid quilter and belonged to many quilting groups over the years. Some of her family’s most prized possessions were those quilts she made over the years. Mom wasn’t one to sit still, so she worked as an Usher for the Corpus Christi Hooks and the American Bank Center and spent her spare time volunteering her services and a smile at Janet’s Cakery
Nelda loved the color red and big earrings. Each year at Christmas time she would wear a different pair of giant Christmas ball earrings throughout the season. She had a big personality, and her family will miss her greatly.
