Elizabeth Stella Neill Obituary

Elizabeth Stella Neill was born in Oak Grove, Missouri to Ollie and May Rider on September 2, 1918. She died peacefully at her home on February 16, 2016 at the age of 97. She married the love of her life, Donald Neill on December 24, 1937

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Donald of 63 years and by her grandson, Mark Neill. She is survived by her son, Donald Neill Jr. and his wife Laura, her grandchildren Sharon Neill Terrazas, Bridget Larrabee, David Neill and his wife Denise, Beth Castro and her husband Gerardo, Jacob Neill and his wife Jamel, Kelli Hernandez, 10 great-grandchildren and 11 great-great-grandchildren

Being serious bible students, Elizabeth and her husband were baptized together as Jehovah's Witnesses on June 30, 1940. They were devoted to the full time Christian Ministry for many years as footstep followers of Jesus Christ

She supported her husband who was a Traveling Overseer for 14 years. She also participated in volunteer construction work, building congregation assembly buildings and kingdom halls to aid the rapidly expanding ministry work that Jesus started in the first century and that continues today by obeying the command he gave at Matt. 28:19, 20

She was a faithful servant of Jehovah God and we look forward to seeing her again in the resurrection (Act 15:14). Meanwhile she will be missed by all those who knew and loved her

Memorial Services will be held at the Assembly Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses, 5501 E. Brundage Ln., Bakersfield, CA in Hall "B" on February 27, 2016, at 4p.m. Memorial talk will be given by Al Gandarilla.
