Kerry Nell Dumas Obituary

My sweet, strong, and beautiful wife of 32 years, Kerry Dumas, died on November 14, 2023, after 42 years of paralysis and a long fight with breast cancer. Kerry never made excuses based on her physical challenges, but worked hard and ran with endurance and grace the race God had set before her. She was a beautiful example of how to hallow the Lord in the midst of suffering. 

A woman of conviction and humility, strength and tenderness, she cared deeply for her family and friends, and trusted the Lord to answer her prayers for them. Kerry insisted she was a wimp, but all who knew her saw the strength of the Lord in her.

Born in Mobile, AL, Kerry is survived by her mother Bette Kay Nell, her sister Kathy Watts (Tommy), and her brothers Corky Nell (Brenda), and Richie Nell (Lisa); Dottie Li Toscano (Michael); nieces and nephews: Elliot Nell, Aaron Nell, Oliver Nell, Juliet Nell, Louisa Nell, Brady Watts, Mary Ellen Watts, Sawyer Nell (Melinda), Scout Nell, Josie Jemison (Michael), Jake Nell, and Shane Toscano.

She was preceded in death by her father Carlton Nell, Sr.

Memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 18, at Trinity Presbyterian Church at 11:00 am. 

Friends and family have shared their relationship to show their support.
How do you know Kerry Nell Dumas?
