May we introduce our Mom ~ ~ Eleanor (Nellie) Pearl Cox Turpin Mc Calip.

Mom lived by 3 things that were her guideposts throughout her life : GOD ~ FAMILY ~ COUNTRY

GOD: That is the Trinity of God the Father, Son, Holy Spirit. She believed that Jesus is the Messiah or Christ and she held to the promises He told. " I love you, I will be with you, and I will give you peace." Her favorite Bible passage was Psalms 121.
Mom served her Church by : telling stories in the primary department at the original First Baptist Church on Franklin St. She would cut paper people out of catalogs and paste them in a big book and tell stories about these paper people using real life situations. That must have been what it was like for children in the Bible to sit around Jesus listening to him tell about people and their stories. She played piano for church services , sang solos, and belonged to the Y.W. Philathea Sunday School Class. One special Mother's Day during WWII, Pastor John Knight , before the sermon, asked Mom to go to the back room. No one in the congregation knew why, and was expecting the worse. After the usher had escorted her to the back, Pastor Knight told the congregation that her son, James Turpin, serving in the Navy on Guam, was placing a call to her just for Mother's Day. The only place he was sure to find her that morning was at Church. Many tissues were used that day , and when Mom re-entered the Church Sanctuary she was beaming!!

When we moved to the country, she was instrumental in starting a summer Vacation Bible School at Wilson Chapel, the little country Church up the road. Learn! ing and teaching about our Lord was very basic to our Mom. In her later years, she enjoyed the faithful Pastors and Church Members, from First Baptist, who came to visit and serve communion. These visits were often the highlights of her days. She would recount to us how much she looked forward to them, both while on the farm, and later at the Nursing Home, in North Vernon. All the deacons knew if they visited Nellie, they could be there at least an hour. To visit with her took time, as she had a sharp mind and was very witty, and loved to talk about World Events. Sometimes we felt they must have drawn straws to see who were the fortunate ones, and got to drive to her home that month.

FAMILY: She was born on November 19, 1905 in Columbus, Indiana as the 2nd daughter of Jacob and Olive (Hougland) Cox. She belonged to a family of 3 sisters and 1 brother. Her father worked for the Public Service Company in Columbus, and he loved to fish in the White River. Mom told us stories how her father taught her how to cut slices into the Suckerfish in order to eat them, and you always ate bread with fish so that the bread, instead of your throat, would catch any bones. Her mother Olive taught her how to walk the river banks and pick "poke" and other greens to sublimate the family diet.
Mom worked many years in the Columbus Hospital, before and after she married, at various locations. She knew many of the doctors and would tell us stories about what is was like working there. She wanted to be! a RN Nu rse as she loved helping people, but her mother did not think girls needed Higher Education. She wouldn't let Mom attend nursing school, so Mom worked as a PN.
She raised 2 sons and 4 daughters in our family. One of our sisters, Sheila, was a twin to our brother Sheldon, who died at the age of 18 months old. It was extremely difficult for Mom to lose him, as Dad wanted a son so very much. Her faith in God gave her strength to get through those sad times.

In Columbus, in our early years, we lived at 5th and California next to Cummins Diesel Company. Some evenings, we would walk up to 7th St to wait for the bus bringing Mom home from the 11-7 or the 7-3 shift at the hospital. She worked many different time shifts and was on her feet many hours. She looked so pretty in the white stockings, white shoes, and her white uniform. Our Dad worked at Mooney's Tannery and walked to work each day. On Sunday mornings we would walk as a family down 5th St. to the First Baptist Church on Franklin St. We would make a game of seeing who could step on the "magic block" to start the bells as we passed the First Christian Church.

Every Easter she would give us four girls a "Toni " permanent . These permanents were applied to our hair by the rubber band style rollers. We had to hold very still which was difficult, as the rubber bands kept snapping and poking against our heads!! Mom also was a great seamstress and made lots of our clothes, especially our Easter dresses. One year she even made a Santa Claus suit for Linda including faux fur trim.
Mom was a great cook. She would make home made noodles or dumplings on her days off, and leave to dry on the kitchen counter. We girls would love to sneak a bite of the raw noodle dough, and we still wonder if she made extra noodles just so we could take some. She also made Navy Bean soup with cornbread (yum), Pinto Beans with Johnny cakes (yum-yum), Macaroni & Cheese (from scratch) and many more dishes that were nutritious and inexpensive. We didn't know that, we just knew how good the meals were !! We all learned to be " Clean Platers" whatever the menu.

Remember girls, the home-made burnt sugar or Angel Food Cakes Mom made for our birthdays and always gave us a choice which one? She would stir the sugar in a cast iron skillet until the sugar turned just the right shade of brown (Yummy). Or beating up the egg whites, with a hand beater, until they whipped up so light and fluffy. Of course, the angel food cake had to be cut with a thread. We were very impressed. Whichever cake you chose, you got to lick the bowl and the beaters.

Mom always wanted a place with lots of trees, and finally, in 1954, the Lord gave her 17 acres of beautiful trees on a 36 acre farm, just inside Jennings County on State Rd 7. We lived in a house which was an original log cabin. In the woods, on one of our wanderings, Mom found a special large rock , in our creek. She named it, " The Moses Rock" , which later became a family memory for us girls. On our treks through the woods, we usually wound up there and pretended to be "Moses".

Our father, Rex, became ill with cancer and Mom faithfully nursed him for 2 long difficult years, at the farm, until his demise. The Lord took our father, her husband in 1956, and she remained a widow for 34 years. The Lord had blessed her with a large family .The two sons and four daughters gave her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great grandchildren. She enjoyed visits from them, telling stories, laughing at jokes and loved to receive schoolwork and Crayola Crayon pictures, which she would tape to the bedroom wall. One day the postman left her a letter that had been mailed from her granddaughter Ruth Ann from Chicago, and Ruth had used a S&H Green stamp for letter postage!! She really enjoyed showing people that envelope.

Oh yes, let's don't forget the marshmallow and wiener roasts in the backyard, the trout line she rigged up in the lake, or the big family reunions on holidays and in the summer. Mom was very good about writing drama plays for the Summer Family Reunions. One drama that stands out the best, was about "The Wedding of Carrot Top and Cabbage Head. "

In her later years, Mom enjoyed so much feeding all the birds, and watching the squirrels that lived in the big Oak tree right outside her kitchen window. Many a day she sat there in her recliner, drinking coffee, and reading her Bible, waiting on the mailman to bring her a letter, or the Church Bulletin.

COUNTRY: Mom was thankful to be an American, and gave of her time back to the community and the military. Though she or her husband didn't serve, she had both sons serve. Jim Turpin choosing the Navy and serving during WWII and Korea. Bill Turpin, selecting the Army, serving in the Korean War and 3 tours in Vietnam. Her daughters married men who have served in the Army, Air Force and Marines. Several of her grandchildren have served in all branches of the military. One has served in Iraq, and one now deployed in Japan. Some of her many great-grandchildren are presently serving overseas, also. She believed in our country and always made sure she voted in the elections. She wouldn't tell us whom she voted for in those years. She said that her vote was private.

After she became a widow, she volunteered in our schools, and was PTA President at our local Elementary School in Scipio. There she worked with Dale Greenlee to help the community organize a much needed rural Fire Department. She helped in her two son's Boy Scout troops, and many years later enjoyed the Church troops led by Charlie Cowles, and later , Larry Alexander. She enjoyed their trips to our farm. She had a very special section named "The Boy Scout Camp" in the woods, and enjoyed all their campouts and conversing with them, when the boys would come to get water.

The sale of this land and her home, after her demise, was the nucleus for developing the "Nellie McCalip Learning Center" our present First Baptist Church Library. We are so very, very grateful to Scott Crowder, surveyor, and Norman Curry, lawyer, who were invaluable for their donation of time and assistance.

Mom went to be with our Lord just before her 85th birthday in 1990 and we thank her for sharing her faith, and giving us a solid Christian foundation. She left us a poem at her Memorial Service, which also depicted her thoughts and values on living a full life. It was a framed poem, and was given to Sheila's oldest son, David (Davey-Long Legs, Mom's favorite name for him). It is entitled "Live Life to the Fullest" by Robert Louis Stevenson.

Mom, you were a wonderful Blessed Christian Role Model for us, and WE love you for being our MOM.

Peggy was more than my Aunt.We grew up together through the war years and on throughout our teens.We did silly, fun things girls do. We shared our dreams and part of our souls.We each married our first loves and later lost contact when ALL our babies came.As time passed we once again shared our much older and wiser time. Peggy was fun,interesting to converse with on most subjects.She will always be in my heart and I WILL miss her in my life......

I have so many wonderful memories of my Aunt Peggy visiting her sister, Bertie, my mother - all the joyous laughter - and the special paper doll she hand drew for me as a child (which I still have in my possession). I know Aunt Peggy is being greeted by many open arms and joy. May God's promise of eternal life be a comfort to all at this sad time.
