EVANSVILLE, IN – Nell (Nellie Key Epley) Denny died Monday, June 18, 2018, at Vanderbilt Medical Center. Mrs. Denny was born in Browder, Kentucky, June 7,1932. She grew up in Central City. She graduated from Central City High School, Class of 1950 (Go Golden Tide!). She married Rudy (Terrell Rudolph) Denny in 1950, and was married for 62 years, till his passing. After a short time in Luzerne, KY, they lived and brought up their two boys together in Evansville, Indiana. After their retirement, they moved to Goshen, KY, to be near their only grandchild, Lizzy. She then moved back to Greenville, KY, after the passing of Rudy. She is survived by their sons, Monte Denny, a resident of Greenville and former Graham School Principal, and Dr. Marty Denny of Frankfort, Kentucky, along with her two daughters in-law Sandy (Monte) and Teresa (Marty), and her only grandchild Elizabeth—the sparkle of her eyes. She is also survived by one sister, Avis Dukes, of Central City, along with nieces and nephews and her step grandchildren/great grandchildren. Preceding her in death were her parents Marvin and Beulah (Nuckolls) Epley, and sisters Katie Staples-Nix, Helen Taylor, and Janie Radcliffe. She was a devout Christian and a life long member of the Church of God of Prophecy–-which she attended for over 85 years. She leaves a legacy of people she loved, mentored and broke bread with preaching the gospel from Australia to Africa and throughout the USA in many denominations. She was a loving, kind, and wonderful wife, mother, and grandmother. She grew up in the midst of the depression, but provided throughout her life, and took care of her household and others with her love, warmth, and kindness. Her vocation was being the best wife, mom, grandmamma, and daughter (when she was young) she could be. As a devoted homemaker, she prepared Rudy over 10,000 lunches for work, and made sure her boys were clean, dressed, and on time for school everyday. She stayed up late, and made sure everyone was in the house before she went to bed. She provided a wonderful upbringing for her two boys, and had gentle patience with Lizzy, willing to look at countless things with her when she and Rudy would take her shopping or just out for the day. Most of all she taught them and all she met, faith and love in Jesus Christ as her legacy. She was as conservative as they come as a Christian and Liberal politically. She didn’t leave it to others to teach her children the Ten Commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, or the Gospel—she lived them all, and taught them each day of her life. Funeral services will be Thursday, June 21, 2018, at 12:00 noon at Tucker Funeral Home in Central City, with Bishop Wiseman Webb officiating, assisted by Rev. Chase Thompson. Burial in Parklawn Cemetery in Evansville, IN. Visitation will be Thursday after 9:00AM at the funeral home. Online condolences may be made at www.tuckerfuneralhomes.com.
