She moved to Texas in 1968 and began a career in the transportation and shipping field with ITOFCA, first as a receptionist and ultimately becoming office manager by the time of her retirement. It was after she retired and her daughter married and moved to Tioga, that Nellie too moved to Tioga and built her dream house with a swimming pool.

Nellie is survived by her beloved husband Eugene Berend, son, Danny Jones Moody and his wife Janie, of Denison, TX.
