Dois Nelson
Dois P. Nelson died at her home on Nov. 22, 2010, at the age of 84. She was born on Oct. 1, 1926. She was the daughter of Gus and Maude Payne. Dois was a person of exceptional character born into a family environment of abundant love. She absorbed that love and willfully bathed her loved ones in it throughout her life.
The parent’s charge is to convince the child that he/she is “a precious entity of the universe,” according to Scott Peck. In an unwavering manner, Dois was dedicated to that principle and whatever successes her family has enjoyed in the world is undoubtedly traceable to that dedication.
Dois brought the same dedication to other spheres of life. She had an adventurous mind and applied it to everything from the stock market (with limited success) to the game of bridge (with considerable success)to running a veterinary hospital.
Dois’s affection for her friends was deep and authentic. She rarely faked anything…unless it was at a bridge table. Finally, perhaps her most notable virtue was her courage. Over the final 30 years of her life, she survived four major cancers and the adversity forthcoming from those surgeries paled in comparison with a 13-month battle with Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Only an indomitable spirit survives those circumstances and returns to distribute more love and to play more bridge.
Dois will be missed immensely by those who loved her, but there is not a doubt that her lovely spirit will live indelibly on in the hearts and minds of those who loved her. To them, she represents most everything that is good about the world. The joy of Dois’s life was her three grandchildren, with whom she lived for 24 years. Her strength and love is embedded in their hearts and will remain with them forever.
Dois’s survivors include two sons: Dr. Kenneth Monts of Texas; Dr. Jamie Nelson and his wife, Holly Nelson, of Baldwyn. One daughter: Karen Nelson LaParry, and her husband, Hal LaParry, of Tennessee.
Three grandchildren: Lauren Lafferty and her husband, Carl, Anna Thornton and her husband, Casey, and James (Jay ) Nelson, III; two nieces, Peggy Davidson (Charles) and Dixie Smith.
Dois was preceded in death by her parents, her brother, Douglas Payne, and her sister, Evelyn Nichols.
Services will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Waters Funeral home with Bro. Stanley Huddleston officiating. Burial will be in Springhill Cemetery.
Her pallbearers will be J.P. Davis, J.C. Robbins, James Gorden Robison, Billy Robison, Billy Tabler, Dr. Vernon Chase, Mike Smith and Keith Miller.
Visitation will be at Waters Funeral Home Tuesday evening from 5 until 8 p.m.
Betty Sandlin

She worked as a seamstress in the garment industry for several years until deciding to go back to school to Creations Beauty College. Upon graduation, she opened and operated a beauty shop for 10 years. A lady of faith, she was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Smithville. She had a big heart that was full of compassion for others.
