Neva Marie Brierley


Neva Brierley passed away in her sleep, Tuesday morning September 7th at

her home at the Good Samaritan’s Clearwater Center. Neva was born in Yakima, Washington, October 5 1924 to Hazel & John Gibson.

Neva will be missed by her, nieces: Marsha Sharlene, Marlene, Debra, and Colleen; sister-in-law Dawn Philips; brother-in-law Bud Brierley; special friends: Greg, Cliff and Joyce plus many other family and friends.

Neva was predeceased by her husband Clifford, by her parents: Hazel & John Gibson, and by two siblings: Rita and Arnold.

Neva enjoyed her friends, volunteering for meals on wheels for many years, sitting with folks at the hospital and enjoying travel and camping. Neva was also a long-time member of the Kinette Club and the Rocky Mtn. House Historical Society. Over the years Neva and Cliff were involved in many community events like the Hockey Club, and the Centennial Canoe Race. In 2009, Neva received the Minister's Senior Service Award for her work at the hospital and other venues around the town. She was honored at a special ceremony at Government House in Edmonton in June 2009.

It is with sadness that we say "good-bye" but we are left with so many fond memories of a good friend gone to better things.

Pam Tyas:

Fondest memories of Auntie Neva and spending time in her beautiful home as a child. Will always remember majestic Siamese cats (that looked at small children with disdain). Enjoyed short visits with her when we bumped into each other in town after I moved back here. Such a lovely lady inside and out. Condolences to her family.

Laurie Archibald:

I vividly remember "Auntie Neva" with fond memories. She was always so kind, enjoyed eveyones company and could easily make anyone laugh. She was a part of my childhood, a very good friend to my parents and I considered her part of our family. RIP Auntie Neva...

Davena (Sinclair) Ma:

So many fond memories of Neva, (and Cliff) from my early years, and then so many more from working at the hospital and seeing her nearly everyday as she did her volunteer visits. A life well lived. She made a difference.

Karin Nijenhuis:

She did so much volunteer work at the hospital, I also remember her parents and Clifford very well. She will be remembered fondly by many people in this town.

Dean Ross:

Sorry to hear of Neva's passing
The last few years have not been too kind so hopefully she is enjoying a big reunion with her loved ones
