Nellie Gay Acott, 75, longtime resident of Hominy, Oklahoma, passed from this life on Mon., Oct. 29, 2018, at Cleveland Manor Nursing Home. She was born Dec. 27, 1942, in Claremore, Oklahoma. She was the daughter of Leroy and Ethleen Joan (Woodall) Waldon.
Nellie began her education in Wagoner before moving to Hominy, Oklahoma with her parents. She later graduated from Hominy High School with the Class of 1960. She remained in Hominy and worked as a secretary and bartender in the area; her most recent job was working for the Hominy Post office as a mail woman.
She enjoyed going to Colorado Springs to visit and she would visit with anyone; it didn’t matter if she knew them or not. Nellie always said, “she never met a stranger.” She also enjoyed going to the Hickory House to eat. Sundays were always special to Nellie, traveling to Tulsa to eat at her sister Carol’s home for Sunday meals.
Survivors are her son, Teddy Acott, and his wife Denice, of Hominy; two sisters Carol Crawford and her husband Jerry, of Tulsa, Oklahoma, and Kathryn Waldon and Bill Singleterry, of Hominy; one granddaughter, Brooke Fields, of Tulsa; and her constant companion, “Sassy” who is now living with her sister, Kathryn. Nellie will be missed by numerous other relatives and friends.
Nellie was preceded in death by her parents.
No formal services will be held. Burial will be in the Elmwood Cemetery next to her parents in Wagoner, Oklahoma. Friends may share a memory with the family online at www.chapman-black.com.
