Neha Yale

September 6, 1962May 4, 2021

Neha Yale, age 58, of Rochester Hills, passed away on May 4, 2021. She was born in Bombay, India on Sept. 6, 1962. Neha graduated from University of Westminster, London and received a Master of Business Administration from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor.

Neha was married to Jayanth Yale on December 17, 1987. Neha worked at Guardian Alarm as the Director of Enterprise Program Office - Strategy and Planning. She had a lifelong dedication to women’s issues and mentoring young people. She was a leader and was filled with energy to drive change and improve the world. She loved professional challenges in her work and was persistent, courageous and confident in everything she pursued.

Everyone that knew Neha would describe her as relentlessly positive and optimistic. Neha loved reading, traveling, and cooking. More than anything else she loved spending time with family and friends. She was truly the backbone of her family. Neha gave to others more than she ever expected back. She constantly sought to take care of others and find solutions to any problem. She cherished her son and daughter and wished more than anything to live as a happy, loving, joint family. She loved spending time in India with family. The place she felt at peace most was with her family and felt especially close with her mother-in-law whom she loved very much. Neha felt at home wherever her family was, which was Bangalore, London and Rochester Hills. Neha’s closest friends, her “BFFs,” were a group of women whom she considered family.

She is survived by her loving husband, Jayanth, her son, Tej and his wife Kanisha.

My condolences to the Yale family. I was fortunate to have had the privilege to work with Neha at EDS. She was a joyful person to work with, always coaching and helping us bring out our best, and always smiling. My life is better for having known her. May her memory be a blessing.

I have never met you and not known about you until today when I read the obituary and the comments. I believe that you were a very kind hearted person and spirit who brought comfort, support and peace to all who knew you.
I wish that you continue to inspire and guide those who knew you and who always will remember you by your kind and supportive work you did in their lives. The kind memories will live on.

I convey my condolences and sympathies to the family members here and in India.

I am so sorry to hear of Neha’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Neha in the mid 80s at EDS. As I read the wonderful obituary, I saw that nothing had changed with Neha. She was a bright light in our lives at EDS and for me personally

Shocked and deeply saddened at this news. This is truly too soon and a big loss to the world. Neha was a unique soul that I am grateful to have met and known. She was empathetic and optimistic at every turn, particularly in the few years we were classmates at Michigan. Her smile and positive energy is one you could always count on to lift your day. She was always there to remind you (whether you liked it or not) that there is truly a silver lining to anything and everything.

My condolences to the family and all those who were fortunate to have met Neha and have her in their lives.

It’s a very shocking news. She was one of the kindest person. I wish I could go back in time and tell it to her. She took care of me when I just came to the USA some 30 years ago. I will always cherish those moments. Om Shanti!!!!
