Obituary

Charlie Anne Nelson, 31, of Marcus, Iowa, passed to her heavenly home on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at Sanford Sheldon Medical Center in Sheldon, Iowa. Funeral services will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 at Peace Lutheran Church in Marcus. Rev. Kevin Roop will officiate. Burial will follow at Marcus Amherst Cemetery. Visitation with the family present will begin at 4:00 p.m. on Monday, September 30, 2019 at Peace Lutheran Church in Marcus. There will also be one hour of visitation at the church prior to the funeral service on Tuesday. The Earnest- Johnson Funeral Home in Marcus is assisting Charlie’s family with arrangements. Expression of sympathy may be directed through www.mauerjohnsonfh.com

Charlie Anne Nelson was born on October 11, 1987, at Le Mars, Iowa, the daughter of Brian and Paula (Wittkop) Nelson. She was Baptized and Confirmed at Peace Lutheran Church in Marcus, Iowa where she was a lifetime member. Charlie received her grade school education at Marcus-Meriden-Cleghorn schools and graduated from Sheldon High School.

Unable to pursue a career due to her condition with Sandhoff’s Disease, Charlie was content to be at home with her family and friends. She enjoyed many family vacations, get-togethers and going to her niece and nephew’s sporting events and activities.

Charlie attended daily activities at the Cherokee Work Activity Center while living at home. She moved to Village Northwest in Sheldon, Iowa in May of 2013 where many new programs and opportunities were available to her. Charlie adapted very quickly and made many new friends which became her extended family. Anyone that knew Charlie would agree that her warm smile and cheerful greeting always brought the best out in everyone.

Left to cherish her memory include her parents, Brian and Paula Nelson of Marcus, IA; a brother and his wife, Nate and Krista Nelson; nephews, Gavin and Cooper; and a niece, Natalie all of Hinton, IA; a brother, Ben Nelson of Springdale, AR; grandmothers, Alice Wittkop and Nancy Nelson of Marcus, IA; and many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

She was preceded in death by her grandfathers, Irvin Wittkop and Roger Nelson; and infant brother, Jonathan; and an uncle, Sam Nelson.

Memorials may be directed to Village Northwest in Sheldon, Iowa.

My heart was caught when I saw you lost your precious daughter Charlie with her sweet smile and cute pixie hair I had to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose such a beautiful child, a part of you, can bring such overwhelming grief and our words may not help but Jesus assures us at John 5:28,29 that you will have your her in your arms once again without the pain we see today. Until God’s promises come true may every good thought, every memory of the love you felt, flood and overtake you with calm and peace to help you through the dark moments. Please go to jw.org for more encouraging scriptures and videos to help heal your broken heart 💔 Sue https://tv.jw.org/#en/mediaitems/VODMinistryTools/pub-imv_4_VIDEO
