Neola was also predeceased by her brother Thomas Griffen (Jeanne deceased), with whom she had a very close bond and missed terribly until her death. Auntie Nee to Lynne, Patti (with whom she shared many celebrations), Paul, Debbie, and Jackie.

Neola was an accomplished pianist, mastered the organ and strummed the guitar.

The children and grandchildren reaped the benefits of her poetry.
