Obituary for Waunita Marie Neelans
Waunita Marie Neelans May 9, 1932 – March 22, 2018
Waunita Marie Neelans was born May 9, 1932 in Chadron, Nebraska. She entered into eternity on March 22, 2018 at Shore pines in Gold Beach, Oregon. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph and Leta Bush.
Waunita is survived by her husband Bill Howard Neelans and their 10 children, 31 grandchildren and 55 great-grandchildren. She and Bill moved to Gold Beach, Oregon after their parents passed and lived there until her death. Waunita will be missed by all of her family. She was the light of her family and brought joy to all who knew her. She loved singing, dancing, bowling and crocheting. She loved animals, kids and Disney movies. She will be missed more than words can say. We are thankful that she no longer suffers the torment and pain of Alzheimer’s. May she rest in peace in the arms of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Please join us in celebrating her life at 11:15 am on April 4, 2018 at Riverside National Cemetery, San Diego, California. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your favorite charity.
