Nellie B. Kissner, 76, of Beaufort, was granted her angel wings on Sunday, August 7, 2022 at her home surrounded by her family.
Nellie was born on October 18, 1945 in Warsaw, NC to Perry and Mary Bennett. She spent most of her years living in Warsaw and moved to Wallace when she got married. Years later a job opportunity became available for her husband, and they moved to Carteret County where she began working for Conner Mobile Homes. After retiring, she worked at the Showboat Motel for many years.
Nellie loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and her fur-babies. Nellie loved to be outdoors. You could find her sitting outside enjoying the fresh air and watching the birds on the birdfeeder. She was also a big fan of music and dancing.
