Nell will be greatly missed. Her love for the Lord, the Word, her children, grandchildren and friends was ever present. Nell and your dad were great advocates for Hipólito & Francisca Triveños Zela work in Peru w/Broadway missions through Bible Class 7 for many years. Yes, her effervescent smile simply wrapped us with her joy and love. I will miss her dearly. May GOD wrap his arms around you and hold you close as you walk this path of great personal loss. Blessings!

To the family of Nell Brady I want you to know we are just heartbroken to learn about the passing of Nell. I would talk to her when she was walking at the park with her friend. I had noticed for about three weeks she wasn’t at the park as usual. So when I found out that she passed away from COVID-19 it just broke my heart. She was such a gracious, sweet, wonderful lady. She would always ask about my husband who had numerous surgeries recently. She cared about others deeply. She would have conversations with other people at the park showing Christ to them through her. They miss her as well. Just know she died as she lived, in Christ. May the GOD OF ALL COMFORT,COMFORT YOU ALL! You are in our prayers 🙏🏾🙏🏾. God bless you and keep you and give you peace in Jesus name, AMEN. We are members of the Sunset COC.

Prayers for your family. We were saddened to learn of Nell's passing. Her beautiful smile was always so welcoming. We are grateful for our long time friendship with her and for the years we taught Bible classes together in the Broadway Church of Christ Preschool Department for the 4 & 5 year old children. Her love and concern for others was a blessing for all who knew her.

Nell and I graduated high school in 1951. She was very smart. We kept in touch occasionally and I would have thought she would live to be a hundred. She was lively and independent. The world needs more people like her. She was well respected in her hometown. Sorry for your loss.

Nell was such a good friend of my mother's and then me. She was such fun at every function or class we were in together. I loved her passion for God's Word and she was sharing her love. Nell was a beautiful mentor and Christian example for us younger women. She will be truly missed but I know she is glorifying her Lord, Master, and King. God Bless your family as you mourn your lost one.
