Neva was raised all over the Panhandle, but made her homes in Clarendon, Texas, San Jon, Portales, Clovis and finally Canyon. She met and married the love of her life, RB Marshall, on Nov. 13, 1937, in Tucumcari. They started their new married life on the farm of RB's parents in Clarendon. Neva studied nursing through the mail from the Chicago School of Nursing in the 1940s. She also studied reflexology, which many people benefitted from. Neva was a member of University Baptist Church in Portales, San Jon First Baptist Church in San Jon and Forrest Heights Baptist Church in Clovis, where she was active in WMU, G.A.'s and taught Sunday school. Neva's career was taking care of her family and being a wonderful witness for God. Neva was a true believer in God and did her best to instill His values in her family. Her loving smile and her faith in God touched all of those around her. Her marriage to her husband was solid and filled with love. Because of her faith she was the calm in her family's trials, our prayer warrior, our angel on Earth. Neva exemplified how a true follower of Christ should live. Her family will miss her but are secure in the knowledge that she sits at the feet of Christ and will watch over us and greet us when our time here is complete. The family would like to thank the staff at Canyon Healthcare and Hospice of the Southwest. They showed as much love to Neva as if they were her family and continue to care for our grandfather, whom they call Pa Pa. We love you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

In the pictures of the tombstones there is one for Sarah Shiplet Jones. She is buried beside Cecil. Ballard said that is Dink's sister Sarah but he doesn't know why Shiflet is spelled wrong. He was very sure it was her because he was at the funeral. This is the only spelling deviation I have found and I don't know why. They all spelled their names the same in my family. We figure it is a typo. The graves are grouped together. Sarah, Cecil, Adline, and Fairwick are buried in a row. About ten feet from them - Mamey, Delilah, and Dink are buried in a row. The large stone belongs to Mamey, Delilah, and Dink. It sets behind the smaller stones. If there is anything else you need don't hesitate to ask. If you want the family pictures let me know.

Hey Bob
No sir, I do not have anything on John and Rosa I am sorry to say, they left this area and not much is known about them, odd story: she has one brother still living (my great uncle) that had never seen her EVER. Rosa was 27 yrs older and was gone from Virginia before Clarence was born. I think she came back here one time when Clarence was in WWII and he still didn't see her. As for the reason they were listed in 2 census records I have no clue I do have a copy of a letter from I think 1957 and the address was in Dinuba CA. I think I may have a picture of Carl Shiflett, somewhere but not sure. My Dad went to CA with them just before he went into the Navy and even he can't remember much about them. This was in the 40's. If you or I find anything on them let me know and I will surely do the same. I did find a picture of Rosa that a Cousin had and I gave her brother a copy of it and he had no idea who it was, I told him it was his sister Rosa and he said well that is the first time I ever laid eyes on her. Sad but true.
