CUTTING NELLIE. We mourn the passing of our beloved mother and friend, Nellie Catherine Brady-Cutting, at MedCentral Mansfield Hospital on January 1, 2013. Her life was shared by many and rejoiced by all. Nellie was born December 7, 1924, in Cleveland, Ohio, to Frank E. and Eleanor (Daniel) Brady. She graduated from Berea High School in 1944, and was employed by the Internal Revenue Service, Cleveland, Ohio. She married Charles Herbert Cutting in 1947 and enjoyed 65 wonderful years together, making their homes in Middleburg Heights, Ohio, Birmingham, Michigan, Mexico City, Mexico and Troy, Michigan, before settling in Mansfield, Ohio, last year. Nellie was unselfish in her love and helpfulness to others. The light and love of her life besides her husband was her three children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild. She was feisty and determined, with a keen sense of humor. Her deep religious conviction molded her sense of fairness and values of right and wrong. Her favorite hobbies were travel, cooking and playing cards. Nellie is survived by her husband, Charles Herbert: three children, Connie Cutting-Champine, husband, Tim of Rochester Hills, MI, Charles H. Cutting, Jr., wife, Debi of Austin, TX and Karen Viau, husband, Dr. Michael Viau of Mansfield; five grandchildren, Jared Cutting, wife Crystal of Lubbock, TX, Megan Cutting of Portland, ME, Jacqueline Viau-Oryhon, husband, Mark, of Chicago, IL, Katherine Viau of Brooklyn, NY, Michelle Viau of New York, NY; and one great-grandchild, Ember Cutting. She is also survived by her brother, Frank Brady and his wife, Joyce of Brunswick, Ohio; her best friend of 60 years, Crystal Dickinson; and many nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Frank E. and Eleanor Brady, she was preceded in death by her sisters and brothers, Anna Elizabeth Hart, Helen Marie Follis, Arthur Thomas Brady, Harry Paul Brady, Sister Elizabeth Ann, C.S.J., Edward Kirby Brady, George Colistis Brady, Dorothy Roseland Milani, Grace Marjorie Keener, Martin Brady, and Patricia Ann Jacobson. Nellie's life was shared by many, rejoiced by all and we, her family, are honored to have been a part of life on this earth. We pray that our Heavenly Father will watch over her and protect her until we meet again. Friends and family may visit from 5-8 p.m. Friday, January 4, 2013 at the Ontario Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 100 S. Lexington-Springmill Road. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Saturday at 1:30 p.m. in St. Peter's Catholic Church, 104 W. First St., Mansfield. Burial will follow in Oak Grove Memorial Park, Lexington.

Grandma Cutting was always so sweet and such a gracious hostess whenever I would come and visit Megan when she came to town. I only had the pleasure of being round her a few times but I remember her smile and generosity. I know she will be missed greatly by everyone. My thoughts are with you all during this time. xoxo
