Nelda Cogburn Alexander

She was born on March 26, 1942, the daughter of Glen William Cogburn, Sr. and Mary Florean Brunt Cogburn. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Robert Alexander; her sister, Fredia Jones; and her nephews, Randy Cogburn, Jeffery Cogburn, Aaron Lovelace, and Mark Alan Cogburn, Jr.
