Ellen D. Neal, Oliver Springs

In loving memory of Ellen D. Neal, age 88 of Oliver Springs passed away peacefully at her home on January 16, 2024. She was born on February 5, 1935 in Sneedville, TN. Her family moved to this area in 1944 when she was 9 years old. She loved get-togethers with family, exploring in the mountains, wildflower hunting, rail buggy riding, and campfires under the stars, especially on Windrock Mountain.

May her enduring love and the flicker of those campfires forever illuminate our hearts.
