On Thursday, January 10, Iva Nell Reamy, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, went to be with our Lord and Savior at the age of 80. Nell was born January 7, 1939 in Mexia, TX to Clinton and Jewel Alene Owen. She married Ostein “Andy” Reamy July 23, 1955. They made their home and raised their children in Navarro, TX and spent 55 years together until Andy’s death in 2011. Nell was known for her generosity and love of family. Her greatest blessings and joys were her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and dog, Duke, who she loved dearly. She was an avid dominoes player and collector of cookbooks and recipes. She was a wonderful cook who was known for her homemade, country cooking. She loved being a grandma and spent many weekends watching movies and cooking for her grandchildren. Most recently, she embraced being a great-grandma and spending time with her great-grandchildren rocking and singing nursery rhymes from her childhood to them.
