Nell was born Aug. 22, 1927, in Ryan, Oklahoma to Lois and Arley Lively. She married Elmer L. Graves on March 7, 1983, in Wichita Falls, Texas. He preceded her in death on Feb. 17, 2007.
She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. Our Momma and Memaw left a legacy of strong faith in God and unconditional love for her family and those around her. She loved the Lord, and we witnessed His love demonstrated through her. Mom was a joy to be around - fun, quick-witted and wasn't afraid to speak her mind. Her laughter was contagious. She always put herself second and her family first. Up until her last breath, she ministered to others.
She was a longtime member of Harvest Hills Baptist Church.
Survivors include her children, Carolyn Coble and spouse Don, Deborah Cary and spouse Rick, Joanne Young and spouse Dean, Marsha Moore and spouse Jerry and Debbie Harrison and spouse Danny; 12 grandchildren; seven great grandchildren; two sisters, Emma Dean White and Vera Lee Wilheim and many other loving family members.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Lois and Arley Lively; her husband, Elmer Graves; twin sons, Floyd and Arley Dean and a son, Greg Dean; a great-grandson, Elias White; and a sister, Mildred Rowe.
