Nora Gladys Neal (1917-2016)

Nora Gladys Neal went to her heavenly home on Saturday March 5th, 2016. She was born on March 10th, 1917 in Halfway, Missouri to parents George and Dollie Sullivan. Nora was immersed in a Christian community from the time she was young, and accepted Jesus personally when she was only seven years old. She had what some would describe as a “simple faith”. She loved Jesus Christ, sought to know him more throughout her life, and loved others more because of it. She remained a faithful servant of the Lord, and to cite one of her favorite hymns, would say “I will cling to the old rugged cross”.
Nora was blessed to have a large loving family. She married Charley “Chick” Neal on August 27th, 1937 in Bolivar, Missouri. Nora was a devoted mother and has always had a passion to care for her family. Her family adored her, and she will be sorely missed by many. Her legacy is her family that were all brought closer together because of her love and compassion.
She is preceded in death by her husband Charles, in 1992; a son, Bobby, in 1993; and a son, Orville, in 2004.
She is survived by her son Charles; four siblings, Hazel, John L., Ernie and Vernie; seven grandchildren, Dana, Kimberly, Eric, Russell, Cindy, Richard and Ronald; and fourteen great-grandchildren.
Funeral services will be held at the Bardsdale Cemetery, 2pm Friday March 18th, 2016. Friends are welcome.
