Aunt Neva has always been one of my favorite aunts, always smiling, pleasant, just a joy to be around her....looked forward to those family reunions to see her.  On one occasion when I prayed with her she may not have clearly spoken all that she wanted but when we prayed about heaven and dancing on those streets of gold, she very clearly said "Halleluiah" so I believe that's what she's doing.  Prayers for all the family.Miss you so very much, Dorie

I lived next door to Nev on the Cold Springs Road when I was  teenager. I am now 80 years old. Through all the years we remained close friends. After every visit and phone call, she ended every conversation with " Love you Guys ". My entire family will miss this strong, kind hearted and devoted friend. Our sympathies to all the family.Joan (Mell), John and Lisa Steigleman
