LUCY A. NELSON

 

Softly in the morning of July 25, 2023, Lucy heard a gentle call and quietly left us all, after gracing this world for 96 years. She was born on March 27, 1927, in Canton, Ohio to the late Victory and Mary (Karnak) Bossick.

 

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, John P. Nelson, II; son, John P. Nelson, III; and her brother, Jim Bossick. Lucy will be greatly missed by those who survive; her daughter, Katherine Nelson Lowther; daughter-in-law, Vickie Nelson; grandchildren, Jamie, Meghann, and Joshua Lowther, Chad, Jonathan, and Eric Nelson; and great-grandchildren,  Tayla Adkins, Halley Carlton, Skyler and Maddison Lowther.

 

A 1945 graduate of Lincoln High School, she worked for Canton National Bank. She was devoted to her family, football and enjoyed canning, camping, and gardening. She was a remarkable cook and found pleasure in making delicious dishes for family and friends.
