Dale, Indiana 812-937-4921 Local Representative RONALD WOODS 812-789-2009 JIMMIE LEE NOSSET T Jimmie Lee Nossett, 83, passed away November 23, 2019, at Deaconess Gateway Hospital. He was born April 14, 1936, in Oakland City to Si- mon and Madge(Black) Nos- sett. He graduated from Oak- land City High School in 1954 and attended Oak- land City College. On July 21, 1956, he married Linda Grubb, of Oakland City. They celebrated over 41 years to- gether before Linda passed away. He worked for Colo- nial Bread Company, well- known as "Jim, the Bread Man," especially through- out Pike County. In 1972, he went to work for AW W Rail- road, starting on the track crew and then moved to the engine house as a diesel me- chanic. In 1994, the railroad closed temporarily; he then was employed at the Jasper AutoZone. He fully retired in 1998. As an active and faith- ful member of the Oakland City Church of the Naza- rene, he served as a trust- ee, Sunday School teach- er, Sunday School superin- tendent, music leader, choir member and assistant trea- surer. He will be remem- bered for expressing his faith through his singing; especially solos he offered in worship services. One of the last times he would sing at church, he sang "The Old Rugged Cross." He has made the great exchange for that promised crown. There is a post on Facebook of him singing. His children and their families want to express their gratitude and thanks to Jean Frederick. For over 20 years, Jim and Jean have spent nearly every day to- gether. The companionship and loving care they shared brought happiness and much joy to Jim's life. For this, the family will always be truly grateful. The legacy of Jimmie Lee Nossett will always be high- ly treasured.
