A precious mother, grandmother and a dear friend to so many. My son, Jay, was married to Sheila the only daughter and he always shared with me, Jays mother, that she always complimented Jay for being a good husband and father, and she loved the 3 granddaughters ,Chloe, Bella and Lucy. Nell helped to care for these
girls in early days of their young lives. I know I will miss
you Mrs Darroch. I really enjoyed my conversations with
Nell when I was visiting my family in Southlake, Texas. Nell is now at peace and sharing time with Mr Darroch in heaven.

Nell was an angel in my life as she cared for my mom in her later years. She was a great cook, seamstress, mother and caretaker. She made the best cornbread dressing ever!!!
