Nettie Grace Gill

December 27, 1924 — February 14, 2020

Nettie Grace (Barnes) Gill of Cozad passed away Friday, February 14, 2020 at Cozad Community Hospital at the age of 95. Nettie Grace was born in Winona County, Missouri to Richard Barnes and Pauline (Brawley) Barnes. She attended Banner Public School in Missouri until she and her mother moved to Fort Collins, Colorado.  Nettie Grace worked at several jobs in Walden and Gould, Colorado, including working on ranches and at FE Warren Air Force Base in Cheyenne, Wyoming at the beginning of the war. 

In 1943, Nettie Grace and her mother moved to Cozad, Nebraska where her mother married Ernest Landercasper in 1944. Nettie Grace helped work on their farm until 1949 when she married Charles Gill.  She worked and lived on the same farm of rural Cozad until her death.

She will be remembered for always being available to help neighbors and family in any and all situations. She also loved to travel and drive around the country and to town when working on the farm as well as into retirement. She was one of the few women that helped with the irrigation on the farm, including carrying and setting tubes, setting up plastic damns and driving tractors and equipment in the day to day operation of the farm.

Nettie Grace was preceded in death by her husband, Charles Gill; parents, Ernest and Pauline Landercasper and Richard and Leona Barnes; brothers, V.E. and Clara Barnes, Lester and Betty Barnes; and sister, Ruby and Walcot Tucker.
