Professionally, Nelda served as a cardiac nurse at West Florida Medical Center in the office of her boss and friend Dr. Bruce McCraw for 20 years. She had a huge heart for her patients, and always went above and beyond to ensure they were well cared for.
Nelda was very generous with her time and talents, always willing to help a soul in need. She served as a volunteer for numerous church activities and events, as well as at the Pregnancy Resource Center in Milton. She had a youthful joy in her voice, and everyone who met her was drawn in by her warm smile. She absolutely loved the beach!!
