Nell was born July 4, 1928, in Spearman, Texas to Walter Gillispie and Mary Denman Gillispie.  She loved being outside and tending to her huge garden or tending to the lawn, mowing, spraying weed and whatever else needed to be done on the farm.  Nell enjoyed cooking and sewing.  She was an active leader in the Morse/Hansford County 4-H and Home Demonstration Club.  Nothing brought more joy to her life than playing games with her family and friends and eating homemade ice cream.
