Lakeland Community Patroness Dies at 97
By Carol A. Gasser Moore
LAKELAND, Georgia – Devoted to her family and community, it is hard to drive through Lakeland and not be touched by the influence of Mrs. Nell Roquemore and her grace, love of beauty, quick wit and passion. Her midas touch and commemoration of those, who have grown up here, has been influencing generations of area residents for decades. She balanced the joy experienced from arts projects and history with fun, elegance and the joy of living. Nell’s interests are hallmarks of our Mural City art to Roquemore Memorial Park and the events that are held in them.
It is with deep regret that the Lanier County News announces the passing of Nell Roquemore. As details about her passing and interment are made available, the LCN will post them.
