Neta Sue Carlson Lewis, 82, Red Oak, passed away Monday, Jan. 21, 2019, at the Good Samaritan Society.
Neta was born Dec. 28, 1936, in Hastings, the daughter of Burl and Mary (Hurst) Harold. She graduated from Hastings High School and started her working career at Thos. D. Murphy Co. in Red Oak.
She was united in marriage to Darrell L. Carlson on April 5, 1958, in Strahan. Two children were born of this union, Greg and Kerry. Neta lived most of her life in Red Oak, except for a short time when her family moved to California. They returned to Red Oak, and Neta returned to work at the Thos. D. Murphy Co., where she retired.
Neta was full of life. She always had a twinkle in her eye and a smile on her face. Her greatest joy in life came from her family. Neta loved family reunions and spending time with her loved ones. She was known to be an excellent cook and baker. Sweets were her specialty. Cookies and beautiful platters of goodies were what she enjoyed sharing with family and friends at all holidays. Neta also loved living in our great nation and was very patriotic. Later in life, Neta was united in marriage to Russell Lewis and they made their home in Norfolk, Neb. for several years. She eventually moved back to Red Oak after Russell passed away.
Preceding her in death were her parents; husband, Russell Lewis in 2010; and brothers, Ruel, Virgil, and Stanley.
Survivors include her sons, Greg Carlson and wife Anne of Johnston; and Kerry Carlson and wife Elaine of Red Oak; grandchildren, Matt Carlson and wife Haleigh of Lincoln, Neb.; Alec Carlson and fiancée Grace Kahl of Salt Lake City, Utah; Michael Carlson of Lincoln; Brittany Carlson and fiancé Josh Prokupek of Pella; and Kaylin Carlson of Red Oak; siblings, Wendell Harold and wife Janet of Omaha; Florine Rife of Mondamin; Leland Harold and wife Patricia of Clackamas, Ore.; and her twin, Leta Burnison of Norfolk, Neb.; sister-in-law, Phyllis Harold of Red Oak; many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and many friends.
