MORROW, Neva Belle (O’Brien), 81, died January 15, 2010, at Kelowna General Hospital in Kelowna, B.C. Neva was born, May 22, 1928, in Reubens, Idaho, to Marie and Ray O’Brien. She married Karl Stelljes in 1946 and divorced in 1968. Neva then married James D. Morrow, of Cherryville, B.C., in 1970. Neva is survived by two brothers in who live in Idaho, five children: Paul Stelljes, Vickie Crawford, Ruth Stelljes, Tom Stelljes and Barbara Deschenes; and five grand children. Neva had a lust for life and adventure which inspired her to travel extensively across Canada, the US and Mexico. She was a great story teller and did her best to live up to her Irish heritage. Neva was a brilliant cook, an avid gardener and certainly lived life on her own terms! Neva will be greatly missed by many. The family would like to thank all of her friends and medical/support staff that helped her to live the last 5 years more comfortably. Special thanks to Paul Ides and Peg Budd.
In lieu of flowers the family would like to suggest
donations made to your local animal rescue shelter or youth center, as she made it her mission to help out any animal or young person who needed a warm hug and a good meal.
