Mrs. Ledet died away on the 20th of January, 2023, in the loving company of her dedicated family members in the warmth and comfort of her home in Tyler, Texas.
On January 22, 1933, Nell was born in the city of Prentiss, Mississippi. Her birthday is January 22. James Vardaman Polk and Margaret Lois Bass Polk are credited as being her parents. Prentiss High School granted her a diploma, and she went on to complete her education at Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi, majoring in business. She wed Roland James Ledet, the man who would go on to become the love of her life, in 1951. They were blessed with three children as a result of their union, which lasted for a total of sixty-seven years before he passed away.
Nell was a passionate Christian who had a large portion of her life committed to ministering to the Lord in some capacity. She was a rabid supporter of both the Saints and the Astros, and she did not miss a single game of either club. In addition to that, she had a knack for gardening and was quite enthusiastic about it. The times that Nell spent with her loved ones, who affectionately called her Ma-Jean, were the times that brought her the most joy. In addition to her human children, Nell adored and doted on her dog, Bella.
The entirety of Nell’s life was marked by a deep commitment to the roles of wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Everyone who had the privilege of spending time in her company will remember her with fondness. Those who are still living to honor her memory are her daughter Jill Horton and her husband Amon of Kilgore, her sons Brey Ledet and his wife Janet of Tyler and Alan Ledet of Yukon, Oklahoma, her grandchildren Amber Horton and her fiance Andy Chilcoat of Kilgore, Andrew Ledet and his wife Tonya of Las Vegas, and Jeremy Ledet and his wife Mia of Yukon, Oklahoma, as well as her great-grandchildren Marcell Simpson of
