December 21, 1921 ~ March 26, 2014
Treva McNeil went to meet her Lord on March 26, 2014. She was born on December 21, 1921, in Ingomar, MT. The family moved to Chelan, WA in 1930, where Treva lived until after graduating from Chelan High School in 1939. She joined the Women’s Army Corps in 1943, where she met and married Robert McNeil in 1946. They moved to East Wenatchee and purchased their first and only home in 1949, raising their children there. Treva loved gardening and raising chickens and peafowl. Living near the old Eastmont High School, her peacocks were well known for “cheering on” the football team when it scored a touchdown. Treva was a woman of faith and attended the Valley View Seventh Day Adventist Church for many years.
She is survived by her son, Fred McNeil (Carmen) and daughter, Miriam Galey (Ken), both of East Wenatchee; and a sister, Joanne Pace of Omak, WA. She loved and is also survived by her three grandchildren, Marie West (Mike) and Britni Chambers (Troy), both of East Wenatchee and Phillip Galey of Spokane, WA. Treva was preceded in death by her parents, Leonard and Bertha Everett; a son, Terry Lee; her brother, Leonard “Bud” Everett; and her sister, Fern Pickett.
The family would like to extend their thanks to the attentive staff at Amber Waves, for the love and affection they showed to Treva over the years. Dolly (Sarah), we love you.
There will be a Graveside Service at Evergreen Memorial Park in East Wenatchee on Friday, April 4, 2014, at 2:00 p.m. Donations, in Treva’s memory, may be made to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society. Arrangements are by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
