Nettie Ann Milligan Welch, 86, of Worden, IL died Thursday, July 30, 2020 at Heritage Health in Litchfield, IL. She was born July 4, 1934 to Mr. and Mrs. Bert & Mary (Everett)Milligan in Hillsboro, IL. On July 28, 1956 Nettie married Kenneth Welch in Worden, IL.
During her lifetime she worked numerous jobs while maintaining a house and shuttling her children and grandchildren to their activities. Nettie enjoyed long country rides with her husband, yard sales, the “GW” mall, and the flowers in her yard. Nettie’s joy in life were her family and friends. She was a very loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a loyal friend. Nettie was always there and showed love and support to everyone who crossed her path, as she never knew a stranger. Her memory lives on through fond remembrances of trips to the Ripson Bridge, family dinners, Bingo, and talks with coffee “jet fuel” at the kitchen table.
She is survived by her loving husband, Kenneth, of Worden, IL, her daughter, Gladys (Welch) Arnold, of Staunton, IL, her grandchildren Molly (McMahon) Wells, John (& Rachel) McMahon, Becky Arnold, and Monica McMahon, and great-grandchildren Landon & Kenzie Wells, Eli McMahon, and her namesake, Nettie Ann Knott, as well as several nieces and nephews.
