Bess (Nelson) Rose Neifert passed away on June 17, 2014, surrounded by her friends and family at Hillman's Haven. Bess was born in 1921 in what was then a very rural South Lyon, Mich., the youngest of four children of John and Stella Nelson. A child of the Depression era, Bess developed the foundation of her excellent cooking skills at the side of her mother and according to her first husband, Jim, "she could can anything!" She learned the finer points of entertaining from her older sister, Della, who for many years gathered the whole family together every Sunday for great food, laughter, and raucous fun.
