Neva was the last surviving member of her family. On Jan. 7, 1944, in Buffalo, N.Y., she married Andrew W. Miklos, who passed away on Sept. 18, 2009. In 1946 they located in Eldred where she converted to Catholicism and became a devoted member of the St. Raphael's Church, where she was a longtime member of the Altar Rosary Society.
