Calhoun City---Dorothy Nell Snellings, 72, passed away peacefully at Baptist Memorial Hospital in Oxford on Thursday, May 24, 2018. Born March 12, 1946 in Big Creek, she was the daughter of the late Harold Estel Coker and the late Syble Poe Coker. Nell graduated from Calhoun City High School in 1964, and was a member of Macedonia Baptist Church. Nell and her husband, Jerry, were married on February 10, 2001. Anyone that knew her knew she loved to garden and loved her flowers, especially her petunias and her roses. Her family will always remember how she also loved to cook, and that she was a very good one too! Nell loved her family very much, and she will be deeply missed by them.
