Nelson E. Poe

Nelson E. Poe, 81, died Aug. 15, 1996 from natural causes. Burial took place Aug. 17, 1996 in the Lusk City Cemetery. Graveside services were officiated by Father Patrick Shea of St. Leo's Catholic Church.

Many Lusk residents who knew him as "Doc" will miss his daily smiles and friendly "hellos." A more complete obituary will follow.

Survivors include his son, Bobby N. Poe and his family of Grove, Okla.; a sister-in-law Gladys Poe of Nampa, Idaho; and several nieces and nephews.

Bader Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

Note:   The above obituary states that Mr. Poe died August 15. However, the Lusk Cemetery records and the US Social Security Index both state the date of death as August 16.
