Martha Lee Nelson

Martha Lee Nelson, 67, of Holly Pond, passed away on November 10, 2020. She was born September 15, 1953, to R.B. and Cora Lee Hardin Clem.

Martha enjoyed the beauty of the birds, and she enjoyed watching them as they busied themselves in her yard. Martha also loved a good yard sale and the treasures that could be found hidden among the odds and ends. Martha was a loving wife to her husband, Wendell, for over 45 years. She was an adoring momma to their children, Khristi and Cody. When Khristi and Cody’s children came along, Martha became a grandmother, and she adored those babies as well. Martha was also a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a sister-in-law, and a friend to so many. Many hearts are broken by the unexpected loss of this sweet lady. Her memory will be treasured by many for years to come.

Martha is preceded in death by an infant son, Collin Ross Nelson, and her father, R.B. Clem.

Survivors include her husband, Wendell Nelson; son, Cody Nelson (Arley); daughter, Khristi Nelson; grandchildren, Shalyn Nelson (Tailor Deason), Ross Nelson, Dailynne Nelson, Declan Nelson; mother, Cora Lee Clem; brother, Donnie Clem (Teeny); brother-in-law, Mike Nelson (Charlotte), Tim Nelson (Stephanie), Mark Nelson (Angel); sister-in-law, Kelly Edwards; and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
