Carrie  Nelson
Carrie Lou (Banks) Nelson was born in Delaware, Ohio to Mary Eleanor (Henderson) and Henry Banks, Sr., on February 13, 1935. She married Gurney E. Nelson, P.E., in 1954. This union produced two children.

She graduated from Willis High School in Delaware, Ohio, and later became a registered nurse. She worked at White Cross Hospital and The Ohio State University Hospital in neurology.

She was active in the community. Some of her accomplishments included Juvenile Conference Committee for Middlesex County Courts.

She participated in her children’s activities as a Boy Scout den mother and a Girl Scout leader as well as volunteering at their schools.

Carrie was a God-fearing woman who was very active in St. Luke’s R. C. Church, participating in numerous church functions and activities including the flower committee, singing in the church choir, fundraising, and teaching catechism.

Carrie was a devoted wife to her husband. She was a God-send to her children and was always there for her children in good times and bad times. Her support was steadfast.

She spent many hours with nature, in the garden, and was an avid reader. Later in life, she worked at Kohl’s Department Store and had many friends there.

Her husband predeceased her in 2007. Her youngest brother, Lewis Banks, and her brother-in-law Cecil (Marcella) Wright predeceased her. She is survived by her son Anthony E. Nelson, Sr., Past State Commander MOC and daughter Dr. Adrienne F. Nelson and her siblings, Marcella Wright, Henry (Ann) Banks, Claudia (Michael) Hall, Cousin LeNora Henderson, grand and great-children, cousins, and nieces and nephews.
