Nellie J. Crews, a native of Mammoth Spring, Ark., and life long resident of St. Louis, Mo., died Jan. 3, 2005, at Mobile, Ala. She moved to Mobile in November of 1998 to be near her son.

CORP volunteers assist the aged, handicapped and indigent citizens in the St. Louis area. She will also be remembered by her friends in St. Louis and Mammoth Spring for her liberal giving of time and money to help the less fortunate through benevolent and mission teaching programs by the Churches of Christ in St. Louis, and Mammoth Spring.
