Memorial services for Nellie J. Pfister were held at 2:00 P.M. Wed., Dec. 7, 2016, at Pier Funeral Home in Lusk.

Nellie Jean (Olofson) Pfister passed from this earth, surrounded by her family on November 30, 2016, at the age of 81.

Nellie was born to Mary (Barnes) and Ralph Olofson on July 23, 1935 in Walthill, Nebraska. Her family moved to Lusk in 1943 when she was eight years old.

She owned "Nell's Second Hand Store" (or, as most of us called it, "La Nell's") in Lusk. The store had its doors opened for ten years, and during that time, she obtained hundreds of customers and clients. She loved her animals and was a friend to all.

Nellie was preceded in death by her parents, Mary (Barnes) and Ralph Olofson, her husband Dick Pfister, her daughter Tony Kay, a sister Naomi Coen, a brother Bill Barnes, and a grandson Jay Linneman.

She is survived by her daughters, Rickie (Tom) Linneman and Pat (Mike) Pfaffenhauser; her granddaughters, Michele (Derek) Jackson, Brandi McCoid; grandsons, Todd (Jennifer) Linneman, Tony (Rhiannon) Santisteven; 9 great-granddaughters, 3 great-grandsons, 2 great-great-granddaughters, and 1 great-great-grandson.

Pier Funeral Home is handling arrangements.
