Bessie Neal

AGE: 88 • Newark

Bessie Neal, age 88, of Wilmington, DE, daughter of the late George Potts and Pearl Steele, went home to be with the Lord surrounded by her loving family Tuesday, May 17, 2016. Bessie was an awesome cook and everyone loved sampling her fried chicken and sweet potato pie. One of Bessie's favorite things was peanut butter. She could often be found watching TV detective shows and Wagon Train Westerns. Bessie cherished her family and looked forward to when they were all together; especially during the Christmas season.

Bessie is survived by her son, Sonny James (Emily) and Michael Neal; daughters, Lorene Allen (Edward) and Carolyn Savage (Larry); 15 grandchildren; 25 great grandchildren; brother, Bobby Potts (Sandra); and 4 sisters: Kathleen, Pearl, Lottie, and Eldora; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by her husband, George Neal; and son, Robert Johnson.

A visitation will be held Tuesday, May 24, 2016 from 10 AM - 12 Noon in the Strano & Feeley Family Funeral Home, 635 Churchmans Rd., Newark, DE 19702 followed by a service in celebration of Bessie's life at 12 Noon.
