Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: May 13, 1934
Upshur County
Texas, USA
Death: Apr. 31, 1936
Upshur County
Texas, USA

Nelda's parents operated a dairy farm in their community of Pritchett.
Nelda found some poison pills, probably in the dairy barn, and as two-year-olds will do, decided to taste the pills. When her parents discovered what she was doing, they frantically rushed her to the doctor, but she died in her mother's arms on the way, leaving her parents devastated.

Nelda had older sisters, Mary Emma, LouAnn, and brother James.

"She was so very, very special
And was so from the start
You held her in your arms
But mainly in your heart

And like a single drop of rain
That on still waters fall,
Her life did ripples make
And touched the lives of all.

She's gone to play with angels
In heaven up above
So keep your special memories
And treasure them with love

Although your darling daughter
Was with you just a while
She'll live on in your heart
With a sweet remembered smile."
