To the Neave family
So sorry to hear about the loss of Patty. She was such a good woman, mentor, ahead of her times, and a gentle spirit. I remember her calming nature. She guided me through basketball times & appreciated her guidance when I was in high school. Loved being her neighbor & getting to know the Neave family on Deep River Rd. My thoughts & prayers are with all of you. Sincerely, Shirley Davis

I had the pleasure and honor of teaching with Patty at Jamestown Middle School. She was truly one of the best Physical Education and Health teachers that I have worked with in my years of teaching. I am richly blessed to call her my friend.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends.

I was just one of many high school friends who knew and loved Patty for her sweet nature, kindness and energetic and bubbling personality.

She was a wonderful high school classmate and became a wonderful adult dedicated to teaching and serving others.

It has been 55 years since Patty and I graduated in the class of 1961- a class of 150 great students.

We are now losing classmates like Patty every year. We are so fortunate to be alive and to hold on to the wonderful memories of our youth!

Patty, I can visualize you now in Heaven playing basketball and all the other athletic sports you so loved.

God bless and keep you and may your family and friends keep your memories close to their hearts and souls.

With my deepest sympathies,

Rick Bilbro

I was blessed to have shared Patty's first two years of teaching at Northeast High School where Patty daily demonstrated her love for the students she taught. They showered her with their respect and affection as she taught and coached them to believe in themselves and to perform to their best. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Heaven is a brighter place today.

I was sorry to learn of Patty's passing.

We enjoyed when she and Susan visited us in Canada, especially the times when she visited us in Regina, Sk. We had many good times with Patty, one particularly memorable one when we visited NC and our trip to the Outer Banks with Patty, Susan and Dorothy Yaskiewicz.
She was always good for a few laughs and will be missed by all who knew her.

With sympathy,

Audrey Mironuck, a friend from Canada

I am so sorry to learn of Miss Neave's passing. She was a good teacher. Even though I was not very athletic. I still had fun in her gym classes at Ragsdale. Rest in Peace, Patty Brave.
