Mrs. Nora Nell Jackson’s husband Richard passed away June 5 after a long battle with cancer. He had been in Hospice for just a day. Just two weeks ago he had been active, but the last two weeks he had been confined to bed and his chair.
Nora Nell and Richard were married on Thanksgiving Day, 1960 and would have celebrated their 53rd anniversary this year. They have two children, Hardy and Dinah. Hardy works with Richard and Nora Nell on their Texas hunting ranch. Dinah has continued in her mother’s footsteps in service to Zeta Tau Alpha.
There will be a memorial service in July in Tallahassee. Once the details of the service have been announced, we will let the chapter know so that we can send something and any local alumnae who wish to, can attend.
Anyone that wishes to send a note to Nora Nell and her family, can send it to the following address:

Beta Gamma alumna and former Tallahassee ZTA Alumnae Chapter member Judy Anderson has sent a lovely note to the chapter (on a notecard she designed!). Judy left us to become House Director at the ZTA chapter at the University of Rhode Island.
Just a note to say that Rhode Island has worked out very well. I adore my girls and will be with them 2013-14. URI is a beautiful campus with 13,000 students and it is Greek friendly!
Stacie (daughter) is in Springfield, IL on a fantastic opportunity. I’m hanging out at Amy’s (daughter) in Birmingham, AL. My grandkids are 6, 7 and are so adorable.
Please let our Zeta alumnae circle of friends know my news.
All my best to you!
If you would like to contact Judy, and I know she’d love to hear from her Tallahassee sisters, here is her address.
