Nellie Marie McGrath


Nellie Marie McGrath of Bourbon, Missouri was born on December 22, 1936, in
St. Louis, Missouri to the union of William and Evalene (Barth) Simane of
Bismarck, Missouri. She left from this life on Sunday, February 12, 2023, at
Steelville Living Center at the age of 86.

Nell retired after twenty years of dedicated service as the Assistant Teller
Supervisor at the Bank of Sullivan. She was a member of the Cuba Methodist
Church. She enjoyed her cats, birdwatching, solving puzzles and road trips.

Nellie was preceded in death by her parents William and Evalene Simane;
husband Gary M. McGrath; sister and brother-in-law Louise and Albert West; and
stepson David McGrath.

Nell’s love for Gary was deep. Together they shared their lives as well as they
could with daughter Mollie (Mike) Swafford of Amarillo, Texas; stepsons Tim
McGrath and Chris (Amy) McGrath of Michigan; Bert (Sharon) Thurston of Virginia
and Ken Thurston of Michigan; and daughter-in-law Gwendolyn McGrath of
Missouri and their extended families. Her nephew Mike West and grandniece
Sarah West St. Lawrence of Texas also survive Nell.

Nell was blessed by the longtime friendship and loving care of Laura (Bobby)
Lockhart of Leasburg, Missouri and Franky (Shauna) Todd of Cuba, Missouri.

In keeping with her wishes, Nellie will be cremated.
