Neva was the center of the family. She loved spending time with her family and friends. Even though she fiercely fought Parkinsons for the last twenty plus years. She enjoyed family, friends, stamping, fishing, gardening, painting, card playing, cooking, canoeing, camping, traveling, and reading. Neva was a very talented painter and seamstress, sewing so many costumes and clothes. Neva’s talent really shown through in her cake decorating. She blessed so many weddings, birthdays, baptisms and special occasions with her cakes.
