Nelle B. Koons

Violet Wynelle “Nelle” Bowling Locker Koons, age 84, of Madison, AL, residing at Nashua Crossing, was called home to the Lord on March 14, 2019 at Southern New Hampshire Medical Center.

Nelle was born in Cullman, AL, the fourth child of William and Doris Bowling. Nelle married Alexander Joseph Locker, Jr. (Joe) in July 1958 and lived outside of St. Florian, AL. They remained married until he was called home on July 3, 1965. She remarried Reverend Charles W. Koons on June 23, 1974 where they lived in Florence, AL until they moved to Johnston, SC in 1990. Charles was called home on July 17, 2011. Nelle moved to Madison Village in Madison, AL in 2015 to be closer to her daughter, Janet. She moved to Nashua Crossing in Nashua, NH in 2018 to be closer to her son, Al.

Nelle was a life-long teacher serving in public and parochial schools. She taught at Bradshaw HS, St. Joseph’s elementary, Rogersville Elementary, and Johnston Elementary in SC. Like what she asked of her students, Nelle continuously was learning and received her BS in Home Economics from Alabama Polytechnic Institute (now Auburn University), a MA in education from the University of North Alabama, and an Education Specialist from the University of North Alabama (UNA did not offer PhDs in Education).

She is survived by: daughter Janet (Charles) Quillen of Madison, AL; son Alexander J. (Elise) Locker III of Westford, MA; four grandchildren, Alexander J. (Danielle) Locker IV, K. Rachel Quillen (Jody L. Davis fiancé), J. Patrick Quillen, and Kirsten A. Locker; and sister Dorothy Boerner of Huntsville, AL.

Funeral service was conducted at the Acton Funeral Home on March 23, 2019. It was presided over by Reverend Eric Sahlberg of Mount Calvary Lutheran Church, Acton, MA.

In keeping with Nelle’s charitable action focus, the family request donations be made in Nelle’s name to local charities to support local needs.
