Nellie was a long-time resident of Ellettsville where Rev. Helton pastored the Ellettsville First Assembly of God church for twenty-four years. She was always gracefully by his side. She moved to Anderson in 2003 where she resided until her death. Nellie was born in Monroe County on October 21, 1914 to Otto S. and Alta E. (Allen) Deckard.
