Mrs. Ruth B Nelson, 74, passed away Thursday morning in Huntsville, Alabama after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. She was preceded in death by her devoted husband, Rick, her parents, Arthur Terrance and Ruth Humphrey Brown, and her sister Betty Jean Bonner. Mrs. Nelson was born and raised in Montezuma and lived in Macon, Tembagapura, Indonesia, and Slidell, Louisiana prior to the family's move to Milledgeville in 1982.

Mrs. Nelson was also involved in the Civic Woman's Club, and the Carrington Woods Garden Club. She moved to Huntsville, Alabama in June of last year to be closer to family.
