Condolences to Nelly's family. Nelly was a sweet, intelligent lady. She was very talented in knitting and crocheting everything. We appreciated the items she made for us; they were so beautiful. Nelly will be missed. Love, Holy Rosary Mission Ladies

When ever we would visit Mr. and Mrs . Ricchio, Nelly always put food on the table and encouraged us to eat, even when we weren’t hungry. She will always be remembered as a sweet loving woman.
