Nellie Mae Buchman, age 87 of Dover, died peacefully in her sleep on November 21, 2019. She was born to the late Jack and Esther Green in Valdosta, Georgia on April 8, 1932.

She is survived by her five children, Jon Buchman, Greg Buchman, Donna Buchman, and Deborah Mahaffey all of Dover and Valerie Lyons of San Antonio, Texas. …She is also survived by her siblings…Janie Ruth Rizer, Frances Bennett, and Larry Green of Florida and Georgia

Nell was a strong woman, a wonderful mother, grandmother (13 grandchildren), great grandmother (16 great-grandchildren), and great-great grandmother (3 great-great grandchildren).

She loved people, would party at the drop of a hat, loved her wine, a good game of penny poker, Yahtzee, and Bingo…especially when she won!

For many years, Nell worked for the Dover AFB Exchange. She took pride in her work and enjoyed her colleagues.

Nell requested an intimate burial and funeral, there will be a visitation from 4-6pm Tuesday, December 3, 2019, at Torbert Funeral Chapel, 1145 E. Lebanon Rd. (Rt. 10), Dover, DE 19904.
