Neva Light Obituary
Neva Light

Neva Light, 92, went peacefully home on March 24, 2014.

Neva had a sweet and gentle spirit, and was loved by all who knew her. She was a soft-spoken lady who was kind to everyone she met. Neva was proud to share stories of her days working at O'Neil's Department Store, where she worked in the jewelry department. When O'Neil's closed, Neva, of course, moved on to new endeavors; she worked at Stavies Wash and Dry, where she was able to work with dear friends and meet new friends daily.

Neva had a small, but loving family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Ted, and her son, Don. Also preceding her death were her parents, all but one sibling, and many beloved friends. She is survived by and will be remembered by her sister, Edith, of California, and a few nieces and nephews.

Lastly, Neva was dearly loved and considered a family member to the Boyd family. She was a dear, dear friend to Linda and Jimmie, an adopted grandmother to Amanda, Katie and Scott, and an adored great-Grandma to Jonathan and Neva-Kate. She impacted their family more than she ever knew. We love you so very much.

The family will receive friends at the Adams Mason Funeral Home (791 E. Market St., Akron) Thursday, March 27, 2014, from 9 a.m. until time of service at 10 a.m, Rev. Kent Jarvis officiating.

"Don't cry because it's over. Smile because it happened." ~Theodor Seuss Geisel (ADAMS MASON FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATORY, 330-535-9186)
