Together Again
Mary Belle Little Nelson of Shreve passed away on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at the home of her youngest daughter and son-in-law, Vicki and Keith Dunbar.
Mary was born November 30, 1928 in Wooster to Laura and John Little.
Mom married our dad, Virgil J. Nelson, on September 12, 1947. Mom worked at the Daily Record for 20 years as the editor of the TV Tab while raising five children at our home on McDonald Street. After Mom and Dad retired they moved to the country near Shreve and built a new home. They continued working part time at their sons ™ restaurant, the Des Dutch Essenhaus in Shreve.
Mom and Dad loved to fish, mom probably more than Dad, and we always thought she was the better fisherman. They spent over 40 years in the summers at our cottage in Northern Ontario, fishing with their children ™s families and teaching the grandchildren and great grandchildren to fish and enjoy the Canadian landscape. It was their special place and we were blessed to spend all those summers together.
Mom was a life long member of the First Church of God on Akron Road and an active member of the TNT Class. Mom was preceded in death by Dad, her husband of 70 years, on September 15, 2017 and her sister Margaret Grimwood.
She is survived by their children John (Debi) Nelson, Jim (Susie) Nelson, Carol (Rick) Middleton, Bill (Rosanna) Nelson and Vicki (Keith) Dunbar; Grandchildren Adrienne (Ben) Byo, Alyssa (Sean) Piper, Erin (Chris) Webber, Megan (Mike) Shryock, Jamie (Jake) Scott, A.J.
