On Wednesday, February 23, Nellie Ree Mitchell Scarborough, 72 of the Deep Bottom Community in Wallace, surrounded by her loved ones, peacefully submitted to the will of God.

Nellie was a sweet and loving lady with a very kind spirit.  Nellie was the wife of the late Charles Scarborough and the mother of three handsome young men.

Nellie made peace with the Lord and praised Him even as she transitioned from earth to glory.  She will be greatly missed!
