July 23, 1948 – February 26, 2019
In Loving Memory of Fay Ellis Nelson July 23, 1948 – February 26, 2019. With profound sadness we share the sudden passing of Fay Nelson (Batting) on Tuesday, February 26, 2019 at the age of 70 years, with her loving husband Keith by her side. She was born in Thunder Bay, Ontario on July 23, 1948. Fay married Keith in Thunder Bay, Ontario on September 7, 1968. Fay worked at CIBC for 25 years. She had a very generous heart and would not hesitate to help anyone in need. Some of her favorite pastimes included reading, baking, shopping, feeding the numerous wildlife in her yard, spending time with family and friends and traveling to the States to visit her son. Fay is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Keith Nelson of Manitowaning; one son Tim (Lisa) Nelson of Greenfield, Indiana; and two grandpugs Rocky and Luna. Sisters: Lois (Richard) Longworth of Ancaster, Debbie (Garth) Pattyson of Thunder Bay; and her many nieces, nephews and cousins. She was predeceased by parents Charlie and Mildred Batting; brother Bruce Batting; Myron and Louise Nelson. As per Fay’s wishes, cremation has taken place and there will be no service. Donations can be made to the Ontario Wildlife Foundation. “We all know how much Fay loved wildlife, so all who wish to honour her life are invited to hang a feeder at their home.” There will be a burial in Thunder Bay at a later date.
