nell vanderslice bate

 

            Mrs. Nell Vanderslice Bate, age 80, of Blairsville, GA, passed away on Sunday evening, December 30, 2012, surrounded by the love of her family.

            Mrs. Bate was born Thursday, January 7, 1932 in Sylacauga, AL, a daughter of the late Reuben N. and Blonnie O. Huett Vanderslice.

There she furthered her education and career in cosmetology and business/accounting. Nell enjoyed spending time with and entertaining friends and family especially at the holidays. Nell and her late husband Fred took a road trip to the mountains of North Georgia and fell in love with the area. They made a pact to retire there someday and worked hard to make that dream a reality. Along the way, getaways to the mountains were always highlighted with fun times. From walks among the rhododendron to listening to the sounds of the waterfall, every moment was treasured.

            Nell rescued many animals - among them were Mandy, Smoky and Callie. They became part of the family and were loved by all. She enjoyed baking, knitting, laughing, make-up artistry, antiquities, flowers, animals and volunteering. Nell was a member of Daughters of the American Revolution, the Lions Club, the Pink Ladies, the Red Hatters and the American Legion Auxiliary. Nell recognized the importance of giving back and encouraged others to do so. She is preceded in death by her brother, Duran Vanderslice and her sister, Mary Thompson.
