Obituary

Louise Nelson Carll passed away on August 17, 2020 at the age of 93. Services will be held at the Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home Chapel in McCamey, TX on Friday, August 21st at 10:00 am. Burial will be at Resthaven Cemetery under the direction of Shaffer-Nichols Funeral Home.

Louise was born on September 21, 1926, in Taft, Texas to Alfred E. Nelson and Dora Treptow Nelson. Her father, Alfred E. Nelson and mother, Dora Nelson, owned a dairy farm in Taft. Louise attended the Taft schools until she graduated from Taft High School at the age of 16 in 1943.

She attended the University of Texas at Austin for three years, graduating in 1946 with a Bachelor of Music Degree After Louise graduated from UT Austin, she moved to Evanston, Ill,, to attend Northwestern University. She graduated with a master’s degree in Music Education in 1949 from Northwestern.

From September 1949 through the end of the school year in 1951, Louise was band director for the Rankin schools. In September of that year, she married C. C. Carll of McCamey in Taft, Texas. He owned the News Publishing Company in McCamey. Louise worked for her husband at the News Publishing Company in McCamey for many years until he retired in 1980. Through the years, she taught private music lessons and was employed by the McCamey ISD as an aide to the band directors for seven years.

She was a member of the United Methodist Church and directed the choir for 35 years. Louise was also active with the United Methodist Women. She loved the Lord and loved singing and directing choir music.

Louise resided in McCamey for 66 years. She loved her home in West Texas and had some great friends in McCamey. I know that she truly missed them while she was living in North Texas. She was a soft spoken woman who had a great attitude, even when she was having a difficult day or was sick. Many of her caregivers loved her and spoke of how kind and charming she was to them.

Survivors include a daughter, Patricia Carll-Young of Plano, TX and a son-in-law, James Young, of Plano; two nieces, Marian McCurdy of Bandera, TX and Penny Whaley of Mustang, OK; a nephew, Mark Allert and great nephew, Mason Allert of Bandera; two great nieces, Jennifer and Rachael Allert of Monroe, Louisiana

Her husband, C.C. Carll, preceded her in death on December 30th, 2000, as well as her daughter, Lou Ann Carll, in 1958. Her sisters, Dora (Peggy) Brown and Ellen Jane Allert, passed away in 2009 and 2019.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the National Kidney Foundation.
