On June 14, 1951 she married Arthur King at her Aunt Isabelle Dialâ€™s home in Friendship, Oklahoma. Neva and Arthur enjoyed of 65 happy years of marriage together before Arthurâ€™s death in 2016. Neva Lou loved being a homemaker, loved to cook and she canned fruits and vegetables, serving and taking care of her three children and all the pets they had including; cats, dogs, chickens, guineas, hamsters, a pet pigeon and a pet possum. She kept her house full of animated knick knacks that would â€œawakenâ€ when house guest and family walked by-and she would always get a kick out of it. Neva loved flowers and everything in Godâ€™s creation. She loved all things sparkly and her favorite color was purple. Her whole life was about helping and comforting others. Neva was a longtime member of the Tabernacle Baptist Church in Altus and as a matter of record Neva has been a member longer than anyone else at the church dating back to her youth in 1939. Her favorite scripture was Philippians 4:8. Neva especially enjoyed their family musicals and get togethers with piano, guitar, banjo and singing. She loved to send greeting cards and was something of a local historian and a free lance writer of poetry and stories much of which were published. She won top story in the SW Oklahoma Book, â€œMilking the Kickersâ€. She also wrote the KWHW Swap Shop music lyrics which played every Thursday. Neva Lou was a beautiful lady that loved God and she treasured helping others and she will be missed very much.
