Mrs. Williams was a member of the Bellevue Baptist Church. Throughout her life she served in numerous positions at all of her church homes. She had a heart for serving others; taking care of her family and friends in every way possible. She was a ‘Nanny’ to all she met.

Nanny was such a special lady. I will always remember her with a smile on her face and sometimes a grin that made you wonder what she was up to. She was such a live wire and lived life to the fullest and was so loved by many. I know how she will be missed by her family as she was the "Rock". She generated a special family and we send our love to all.

Genie and Jerry Ward and our entire Ward Family.

I have known Ms. Nell and her family since living on Willingham Mill Village when I was a child. Ms. Nell and Mr. Broadus were fine Christian people who attended the Baptist Church. Ms. Nell loved her Lord and family.
Caroline and I loved being with her at Bellevue . Barbara, Tommy and Randy and family, what a legacy your Mother left. She was a wonderful example of what a Christian should be. She is now rejoicing with her Savior. As God Word says, "Well done thy faithful servant.
We love you family.

Tommy and Kate,
I so admired Miss Nell. She was always friendly, wore a smile, and was a true Lady! We will all see her again in Heaven. My mama, daddy, Mr. Broadus, and Miss Nell are praising our Savior!
