Pheobie L. Nelson
Pheobie L. Nelson, a longtime resident of Leavenworth, was received into Heaven on Jesus' birthday, Dec. 25, 2014 at the age of 86. Pheobie was the first born of five children on Oct. 31, 1928 to Manfred and Mildred (Young) Nelson in Stubbs, Wisconsin. The family moved to this valley in 1936.

Pheobie was a kind and gentle soul who loved and saw the good in all who she met. She always saw that you got a lovely card or letter on birthdays and holidays. She was an animal lover, her kitty cats were her life, she had a name for every cat and if one passed away she mourned for it. In the last few years, when her back pained her so much, she drew designs on any scrap of paper with simple lined drawings that turned out to be castles, pine trees, rivers or whatever came to mind. She became quite the artist and the nurses all loved her drawings.
