Ramona Neill Obituary
Ramona (Johnnie) North Neill of Blackfoot, Idaho passed away at the age of 88 on Sunday, December 4, 2016 at The Gables of Blackfoot Assisted Living and Memory Center.
Mona was born September 6, 1928 and raised in Kirksville, Missouri to Oscar and Zelma Jewell North. She lived there until the age of six when the Family moved to Blackfoot and attended Grade School, Junior High, followed by Graduating from High School in 1946.
In December 1949 during her time working at a local Restaurant she met the Love of her Life: James (Jimmy) K. Neill who as an Employee of Idaho Power Company was part of the Mobile Line Crew that was upgrading the Electrical Power Grid in Blackfoot. Their Relationship quickly blossomed and they were married by the Justice of the Peace at "High Noon" on May 26, 1950 in Winnemucca, Nevada.
From there, Jim and Mona lived primarily in Boise, Idaho until they moved permanently to Blackfoot, Idaho in the summer of 1956 where she lived at the Family Home on Riverton Road up to the time that her health forced her to move last year.
Mona enjoyed outdoors trips with her Husband and Children, attending every scout, school, sports activity of her Sons and the Grandchildren residing in Blackfoot as well as visiting or following the adventures of her two Grandchildren in Washington State. Later in life she also enjoyed the occasional gambling trips with her girlfriends to Jackpot, Nevada but to the greatest extent it was always her time with her three Sons and her four Grand Children that she enjoyed the most.

Neill (Christi Ann) Bainbridge Island, Washington, and James Todd Neill (Melody Renee), Scottsdale, Arizona, her four Grandchildren: Cassandra Lynnette Neill, San Diego, California, Thomas K.
