They were all part of her family. Each time one of them died, a part of her heart died. Nell worked on the farm with her husband and kids. Also, she worked at the Eastland Livestock Auction for 22 years and met many people. She loved to go dancing and she and Wesley would go dancing on Saturday nights at the American Legion Hall in Breckenridge. This was after the kids grew up enough that they could stay home without a sitter. Nell and Wesley worked several jobs and saw to it the kids got a good education and were so proud of each of them. Speaking of dancing, Nell told a funny story once. Wesley was dancing with someone and she was sitting at the table. This man, on a crutch, came over and asked her to dance. She thought he was joking. But he kept insisting and so she said "Sure". Boy could that guy dance with one crutch! If he would have had 2 crutches there is no telling how well he could have danced. He didn't step on her toes once, she said. Preceding her in death was her husband Wesley Dempsey, daughter Penni Owens, parents Myrtle Anderson and John D. Anderson Sr., and her brother John D. Anderson Jr. and sister in-law Helen Bradford.
