I am the cousin of Neva and Cardi, I say this because basically there have always been just us three. I am going WAY back with my memory, 1962! I was staying with Aunt Mary and the girls for a couple weeks the summer between soph/jun grades. Everybody knows that Neva liked rock and roll. There was a local band that was followed whenever they were close enough to see. We were three getting ready to go dancing and Neva had her Aquanet hairspray in hand!! The air got a 'little' hard to breath. I did not ratt my hair because I had long hair. The girls were having none of that. So they went to work on me. Needless to say, I had to step side ways to get thru the doorways! It was a lot of hair and hairspray! It took all day and LOTS of shampoo the next day, but a wonderful memory was born. And we had lots of fun that summer. PS , next summer I had shorter hair. Love you, Neve.

I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was such a special person and will always be remembered for her kindness and willingness to help anyone. Family was everything to her – she was so proud of each of you. She made a difference in so many lives! In prayers to all of you, Sharlen & Ray Krause

What a beautiful lady inside and out. Neva was a such a wonderful soul making time for anybody and everybody. Truly making everybody she met feel special. She loved her girls so much and it truly made her happy to be a mom and grandma. What a role model she is to everyone she touched. She will be greatly missed but oh how she left her imprint in so many. Kelly, Tracy, Kristy my heart goes out to you as losing a parent is tough. She will be missed and thought of every day never to be forgotten. Sending prayers your way.

Neva was a mainstay in the hallways of the Wakonda School District. She took great pride in the school and in the fact that she nicknamed me “Homer”. Never a day went by that she wasn't trying to show off pictures of her grandkids. She loved you grandkids and was very proud of you! She was a great lady and will be deeply missed by those who were acquainted with her.
