Nellie Shields Bock Flint, 93, Greencastle, passed away September 9, 1994 at
Asbury Towers Retirement Home, Greencastle. Born March 4, 1901, at Roselawn,
south of Putnamville, she was the daughter of William Sanford and Eva Evandale
(Shields) Bock. She attended Putnamville School prior to graduating from
Clinton Center High School in 1918. After attending DePauw University, she
taught high school at both Putnamville and Clinton Center. On Sept. 1, 1923,
she married Glenn Flint, and he preceded her in death May 29, 1984.
Mrs. Flint was active in the Brick Chapel United Methodist Church and also in
the community, having served as a Sunday School teacher, a 4-H leader and
volunteering with the Kenabegewin District of the Boy Scouts of America and
various philanthropic organizations. She was also a member of the Friendship
Circle, Brick Chapel and Clinton-Madison Home Economics Club and was a longtime
member of the Brick Chapel Ladies Aid. She was known for her hospitality and
was an exceptional cook and seamstress. Her home was a gathering place for
friends, including those of her children and grandchildren, and there was
always an extra plate and/or extra bed for the many who stopped by, whether
family, school and church friends, student ministers from DePauw, the Sigma Nus
and Delta Zetas or the entire MYF. Since their farm included beautiful and
interesting scenery and plants, the Flints hosted hundreds of people who came
to enjoy nature there, including a national Boy Scout Jamboree and DePauw
botany and geology classes.
Survivors include three daughters, Louise Brackney and husband John,
Greencastle, Carolyn Carson and husband John, Greencastle; Kaye McKamey and
husband Bob, Miami, FL, a son, Glenn L. Flint and wife Sally, Columbus, IN; a
foster daughter Mary Ellen McKeehan and husband John, Indianapolis; 19
grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren and many
nieces and nephews.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a daughter, Marcia J.
Klebusch in 1977, a granddaughter, Jennie Lynn McKamey; and three brothers,
Ted, Russell, and George Bock.
