Carl J. Nephew

September 22, 1922 - April 20, 2014

MOOERS FORKS — A twin son born to the late Albert and Emma (Rock) Nephew entered into the hands of the Lord on Easter Sunday, April 20th at the age of 91. Carl J. Nephew born on Sept. 22, 1922 in Mooers Forks, N.Y. has joined his beloved wife, Catherine whom passed on July 26, 2012 and they will be together once again for eternity.

The couple were married in St. Ann's Church in Mooers Forks on Sept. 9, 1944. Carl came from a family of 18 of which he was able to enjoy his siblings of 14 living members for many years. He leaves behind his daughter, Judy and son-in-law, Donald Bombard of Ellenburg Depot; and a grandson, Scott Bombard and his wife Shelley also of Ellenburg Depot. His great-grandsons, Tommy, Steven and Corey he accepted with love into the family; and recently a great-great-grandchild, Lily Ann who he looked forward to seeing. A lone sister, Eva Drown of Mooers, N.Y. still resides.

He attended school at Mooers Central and worked on the family farm growing up in his teenage years.

Carl was a self employed contractor for many years and always proud of the work he did when work was done and someone who took such great care of his equipment of which many can tell you.

Those who have predeceased him are his wife; infants, Wayne and Donna; brothers and sisters-in-law, Leo (Pearl) Nephew, Wilmer (Nina) Nephew, Earl (Dora) Nephew, twin Harold (Louise) Nephew, Richard (Clara) Nephew; and sisters and brothers-in-law, Irene (Stanley) Saunders, Lillian (Thomas) Robinson, Bertha (Henry) Provost, Pearl (Theron) Ash, Delsie (Earl) Begor, Charles Drown, Stella Sheehy, Ruby (Richard) Goodell; a set of boys, twins died at birth and two girls.

In the year of 1950, Carl and his wife Catherine moved to Route 11 in Ellenburg Depot where they made their home for the past several years. Two of their children were taken away from them at a very young age due to chronic illnesses. Carl has missed his wife tremendously for the past two years and would tell many he came in contact with that she was the most beautiful girl and that is why they enjoyed 68 years of marriage before she was called home.
