I am so very so to hear about Neta's passing. In the years I got to work with her at Maplewoods it was a treat being able to visit with her and hear her stories! I loved her spunk and missed her visits (and visits with Jerry and Dennis) when I left MWM. I feel blessed to have known her, thank you for sharing such a beautiful soul with me. Many condolences to you all!

So sorry for your loss. Neta was such a spunky little lady. A great roomate for my mom Laura. Loved hearing all of Neta's stories about her family. She loved you all so much. Thank you for decorating their room for all the holidays. It made the holidays special. Prayers and hugs for the family.

This photo is exactly how I will always remember Neta in my mind!! ๐Ÿ’œ She always made those around her smile with her silly ways. Her smile was so contagious. She was such a special lady.. but I know you donโ€™t need me to tell you that!! It was an honor and a privilege to be able to love and care for her during her time at Maple Woods, she was certainly a special part of our large extended family. She will be sorely missed by all of us. Prayers for you, Dennis, Donnie and Jerry and all of the Keely family!

Blessings and Prayers,
