Stella "Nelle" Justice was born December 5, 1925, and passed away June 12, 2002.

Nelle was born in Milo, WV, and came to Akron after graduating from Calhoun County High School in 1943. She was an original "Rosie the Riveter," working on fighter planes at Goodyear Aircraft. Next, she was employed in the printing business of Lindsay Lithograph Company for 17 years. She then worked for the General Tire print shop until retirement. Nelle made a mark on many lives, her parents, siblings, co-workers, and friends. She put a lot of effort into a long and productive work life and left much in evidence.

Surviving her are sister and brother-in-law, Irene and Harry Hanna; sister, Ruth Boggs; brother, Nolan Douglas; brother and sister-in-law, William and Joyce Douglas; and special friend during her illness, Lois Starcher. Also surviving are many nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews.
