    I would have liked to have known about this Remembrance Service. But found out about it, after the fact. Neida had many friends in the Des Moines area, me included. I wish her family’s last names were included in the obituary, as several of us would like to send cards to them. Maybe this was in the Des Moines Register, but I didn’t see it, as I don’t take the Register.We will all miss Neida. She was loved by her friends.
