There can’t be enough said about how much joy and love Neda Kaye brought into everyone’s lives. She was like a mother, General, protector, best friend, loan officer, fighter, sister, daughter and the best aunt anyone could ever have. Neda Kaye was a 1963 graduate of Roosevelt-Wilson High School, where she was a cheer leader and always enjoyed her school activities. Throughout the years Neda Kaye always enjoyed coming home for her class reunions, luncheons and spending time with her classmates and friends. In her younger days she played on a tennis league. She so enjoyed being with friends, the parties or friendly get-togethers. In her quiet time Neda Kaye enjoyed doing crosswords puzzles, playing Word, sewing, playing mahjong with her group of lady friends. She also had a creative side where she enjoyed crafting and making greeting cards and was very good at it. She loved to read and hated to shop. She was an avid WVU football and basketball fan, she liked the Pittsburgh Steelers, and had season tickets to the Phoenix Suns Basketball for many years. She loved to travel and with Bob working for Continental/United Airlines she was able to take advantage of the benefits of traveling in flight, where on several occasions she assisted with in flight medical emergencies. She’s been to England and Paris with some of her hospital friends and loved to come home about two times a year to visit. She loved going to Las Vegas, Laughlin or Atlantic City to play the slot machines. She and Bob would go boating at Lake Powell when able to get away. She loved the beach. She’s been to Hawaii, Myrtle Beach, Rehoboth Beach and Atlantic City and she & Bob honeymooned at Nags Head, NC. She has visited Washington DC, New York City, Disneyland, Las Angeles, Pensacola FL, and numerous other places. She was Methodist by faith and attended the Crossroads Methodist Church in Phoenix. When she lived in WV she played the piano for the Stonewall Methodist Church in Stonewood.

Neda Kaye graduated in nursing from St. Mary’s School of Nursing, Clarksburg, WV. She was a Registered Nurse and retired from Honor Health Hospital, in Scottsdale, AZ after working there for 42 years. She was a triage nurse in the Medical, Surgical and Neurological ICU trauma units for most of her career. She was our go to person for Drs. reports whenever we had a medical issue going on here at home. We never did anything medically without her advice. She and Bob were so looking forward to driving across country in Big Red (Bob’s new truck) to come home, but that trip never happened. She loved her family and was always so excited to come home for our gatherings. We always made a big deal about getting together when she was home. Covid put a damper on a lot of her visits the past 2 years. She found out in July that she had Pulmonary Fibrosis, and after contracting Covid, her Fibrosis took her quicker than we ever anticipated. She will be so missed by all that have had the privilege to have known her.

A gathering of family and friends will be held at the Amos Carvelli Funeral Home, 201 Edison Street, Nutter Fort, on Friday, December 10, 2021, from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, where a memorial service will commence at 3:00 pm with Reverend Dr. Ken Ramsey presiding.
