We are so very sorry for your lost. You have been in our prayers constantly, and we will continue to pray for you in the days ahead. We are glad that we have gotten to know you and your sweet family through our daughter, Carrie. We wish we had had an opportunity to meet your mom.

I will sadly miss Neila, we had a long distance work relationship, and enjoyed visiting whenever I came to her place of employment. Neila reminded me of someone else I lost, with her wonderful mannerism and personality, we instantly clicked. Neila always tried to make the day better for others, stopping what she was doing to assist others was not an imposition to her. Rest in Peace Neila, I am missing you already. Jackie

May memories of Neila and the love and support of family and friends surround you and give you strength during this difficult time. My condolences to the family for your loss, she was a great woman loved and cherished by many.

I worked with Neila at St Luke’s Home Health. She was a wonderful lady, very caring and loving. She will be deeply missed. May she Rest In Peace

I worked with Neila at St Luke’s HomeCare and Hospice. I so enjoyed stopping by her office and chatting with her in the mornings. She always had a smile on her face. She will be dearly missed. Prayers to her family.

Our deepest condolences to Neila’s family. I had the pleasure of working with Neila many years ago at Fullerton Carey, where her sense of humor and warm personality made it a really fun place to work. She will be sorely missed. Peace.

So sorry to hear of Neilas death! We didn’t know she had been ill! Bob and Shirley Lear

Neila and I worked together and became good friends, we laughed and helped one another through good days and some bad days, she was so positive and talked of her pride and joys, her daughter and son and grandchildren, my heart is heavy but I can find peace in knowing her pain is no longer and the promise we will see one another again one day ?

Neila and I became friends through work, always helping all of us no matter what we asked of her, we laughed through the good days as well as the bad days, her smile was priceless when she spoke of her pride and joys, her children and grandchildren, my heart is hurting but I thank God that her pain is gone! Until we meet again, my friend RIP

So sorry to hear this news. She was a wonderful woman. I enjoyed our friendship during our years together at Parents Without Partners. She will be sadly missed. My prayers go out to her family.

So sorry for your loss and the sudden passing of Neila. I worked with her from the North office at Saint Luke’s Home Care. She always had a smile when I was down at the Corporate office and was quick to offer a helping hand. Her kindness and sweet spirit will be greatly missed.

So Sorry Michael.may God comfort you during this hard time.Love you all.Your in Our Hearts and Our Prayers.

My prayers are for your family during this difficult time. I worked with Neila at Saint Luke’s Home Health. I got to know her last year, during a time that I was working at corporate office. She was so very helpful, and positive all the time. Whenever I had a question, she had the answer. She always spoke lovingly of her family, which I could tell was the highlight of her life. I know she will be missed by many, as she touched many with her beautiful personality.

My sincerest condolences. I have fond memories of Neila from way back when, at Eastwood Wesleyan Church.

I had the privilege of working with Neila at St. Luke’s Home Health and Hospice. She was such a light every day. Our desks were near each other, and so we got to chat about her beautiful family and everything else under the sun. Neila made the office a brighter place. My deepest sympathies for your loss. And prayers for peace.

Neila was a dedicated volunteer with Serve KC. Her talents snd open heart will be missed. My thoughts are with you.

So sorry to hear about Neila. She was such a pleasant person. Bill and I used to visit her parents years ago when she was little. She will be missed.

All my thoughts and prayers for healing and strength! She will be with you for forever! Just sit quietly and you will know…

Neila & I met as teenagers at Eastwood Wesleyan & both graduated from Raytown South. Over the years we had lost track of each other but had reconnected about 5 years ago. She was always such a sweet, kind person who dearly loved her family. So sorry for your loss – Praying for God’s peace & comfort for you all! ♡

Neila was a very intrical leader during her time volunteering as a Starlight Ambassador for more years than can be counted. She was looked up to by her fellow ambassadors due to the vast knowledge regarding the history, rules and regulations to follow but mostly due to her personality of human compassion and willingness to assist everyone she came in contact with over the years. Tyler, my son has Down syndrome and being an ambassador with special needs, she saw Tyler as a person first. Neila always greeted him warmly and showed him respect, complimenting him for greeting the guests and ushering them to their seats. As an Advisory Team Captain and lead for the Starlight Auditions she shined brightly each night, every event or activity was better just due to her presence. When her health and pain became an obstacle to her ability to work up to the level of excellance she held for herself, sadly all the 200 ambassadors were at a loss without her guidance a few years ago after she stopped her Ambassador role. We had missed her essence in our life. Our memories are lasting and the prayers for the family are sincere to know peace. May the Grace of God give you strength and know the opportunity we experienced just from having met Neila will be passed on by showing kindness to others from the example she set for us. Many years of memories! Joy and Tyler Weekly
