Neva May (Stogdill) Bovill, 101 of Wahoo was called home on Saturday, March 14, 2020. She was born on February 1, 1919 in Silver City, Iowa to Noah and Nancy Faye (Wilhelm) Stogdill.
Neva had a heart that was even bigger than her personality and she was loved by all that knew her! She was a loving wife, mother, grandma and great Gigi! Neva married Glenn Bovill on August 15th 1937 in Rock Port, MO. When Glenn was called to serve in WWII, she was faithful to write him everyday for three and a half years. She was also a hard worker at a small cafe in Wahoo but she loved cooking for her family most of all! With a personality that was always full of laughter and a love of life, she thrived on being surrounded by her family and friends. She was an avid Husker football fan. At the age of 84, she made the most important decision of her life when she placed her faith in Jesus Christ alone for her salvation.
Neva’s family sincerely thanks the staff at Tabitha especially the Martin House for their loving care. Thanks also to the friends who saw Neva to the end of her earthly journey. You loved her well and we are grateful.
