Virginia “Jenny” Nelson Of Man, WV Virginia “Jenny” Nelson, 90, of Man, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, January 22, 2021, leaving from her earthly home, after a long illness. She was born on January 29, 1930, at Braeholm, the daughter of the late Millard and Minie (Adkins) Scites. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by two sons, Robert “Bobby” Nelson and Billy “BI” Nelson and his wife Sandra; three grandsons, Terrence Nelson, Geary Nelson, and Ernie Dawson; two brothers, Millard Scites Jr. and Hershel Scites; and seven sisters, Elva Walker, Edith Sizemore, Eva Grimmett, Ethel McDonald, Maxine Taylor, Erma Scites, and Gladys Grimmett. Jenny was a Christian for over 35 years. She loved Jesus and wanted everyone to know about the Salvation that He freely offers to all. Jenny was a member of Mallory Church of God and loved her church with all of her heart. Devoted to her family, she was an exceptional mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and great-great-grandmother. Jenny was a loyal friend who was always willing to listen and often gave wise council. She loved to sew, do yard work, and decorate her house for every occasion. Although her life had many sorrows Jenny’s strong faith in God and naturally optimistic spirit inspired those who knew her to hold on tighter to the hand of God and give their burdens to Jesus. She will be deeply missed by all who loved her.
