Nettie enjoyed being a competitive athlete from her years as a softball player, bowler, downhill skier and of course golfer boasting 6 hole in ones!

She started two different golf leagues and was involved in many tournaments and always “played by the rules”!

Nettie loved to travel with friends for tournaments all over NC and competed up into her 80″s with many, many wins! She also enjoyed playing cards with family and great friends along the years. She also loved teaching some of her grandchildren the game of golf with such patience.

Rest in peace mom! You lived your best life!
