Nena Mae Caldwell passed away on Wednesday, January 24, 2018 at the age of 87. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joe, on December 18, 1997 after being married for 49 years.

She leaves behind her Grandchildren Erika Boatright and husband Carl, Jeremy Funk, Nikki Taylor and husband Ryan, Jennifer McBrayer and husband Chris, Karri Boyd and husband Jason, Andrew Caldwell and wife Katie. Great grandchildren Whitney, Haley, Chad, Alec, Jocelyn, Lucas, Landon, Lindsey, and many more loving family members. Nena loved to pass the time by spending time with her family, especially her grandkids and great grandkids. She had many passions that included gardening, taking walks, reading, and volunteering at her church. She loved to eat Mexican food, especially Abuelo's. She rarely missed the opportunity to see one of her grandkids or great grandkids while they were in marching band, drill team, dance recitals, concerts, and color guard. She enjoyed only a few television shows, but she didn't miss Dancing with the Stars, America's Got Talent, American Idol, and one of the classics, The Andy Griffin Show. You could always count on her to have her favorite flowers, African violets and Amaryllis, on display in her den. In traditional Grandma fashion, you could guarantee that there would always be fresh cookies when you arrived, and her famous fruit nut cake during the holidays.
