Neva Lorraine Blake, a long time Magic Valley Resident, died at Grace Assisted Living, very peacefully on April 10, 2018 at 1:45pm, from a short battle of lung/brain cancer.
Neva was born Jan 22, 1951 in Akron, CO to James and Faye Blake.
Neva was known for loving her dogs, her pretty landscapes at her homes, and her huge collection of owls. She was one ornery little woman, a true spitfire, and she would tell you as it was, no matter what the outcome was.
Neva is survived by her children, Julie Florian ( Dave Tynes) of Woodbridge, VA, Edward Florian ( Jessica Florian) of Filer, Idaho, and grand-children Kaylyn Tynes and Paislie Florian; brothers and sisters, Dorothy of Brush, CO, Margaret of Fort Morgan, CO, Shirley of Gooding, ID, Carol of Kimberly, ID, Tom of Russel, KS, and John of Glenrock, WY.
She was preceded in death by her husband, James Miller; her brother, Joe Blake; sisters, Joyce Wong, Mary Steyaert, Doris Steyaert, and her parents, James and Faye Blake.
In her honor, the family requests any donations to be made to these organizations, as they really were great through this whole ordeal:
Meals on Wheels, St. Luke’s Hospice, Grace Assistant Living, and per Neva’s request, donations to any animal shelter.
Neva requested that no funeral services be held. Cremation is under the direction of Serenity Funeral Chapel Life Celebration Center & Cremation Services of Idaho, Twin Falls. Condolences may be shared at www.serenityfuneralchapel.com.
