Nell Richardson Barco

Published: 02/07/2014

Nell Richardson Barco died peacefully on February 5, 2014, at Newport Convalescent Center with her great-nephew, Mac Leibrock, and her great-niece, Charlotte Ann Leibrock, at her side. She was the sister of the late Frances Richardson Leibrock of Newport.

Nell was born in Cumberland Gap, Tennessee on March 8, 1915, and was of the Methodist faith.

She attended Virginia Intermont College before beginning her career in banking, working her way up from teller to Vice-President of Bell Savings and Loan in Chicago.

After retirement, Nell moved to Jupiter, Florida, where she was very active in volunteer work at the Jupiter Medical Center.

In addition to her great-nieces and great-nephew, Nell is survived by her beloved nephews Bill Leibrock of Newport, John Leibrock of San Antonio, Texas, and Frank Leibrock of Livermore, Colorado, and niece Ellen Leibrock Shelton of Knoxville.

The family is planning a private celebration of life to be held at a later date.
