Obituary of Carol Neeld

Carol Neeld, 80, of Tunkhannock, PA was promoted to Glory, Thursday, June 18, 2020. Born November 27, 1939, in Trenton, NJ, she was the daughter of the late William H., Jr and Elizabeth [Lancaster] Lockett. She operated her own childcare “center” ministry in her home in NJ for 32 years. During that time she took care of 167 children. She loved each and every child that came to her home with the love and compassion of Christ. She loved babies! She received Jesus as her Lord and Savior when she was fourteen when an Evangelist came to the Pentecostal Holiness Church in Trenton, where she and her twin sister, Clare would walk to church. She had a remarkable love for the Lord all her life and it was evident to all who knew her. She served the Lord with gladness! God was her strength. She graduated from Hamilton High School, Hamilton, NJ, in 1957. She was a charter member of the Capital Assembly of God Church in New Jersey (1955) and a current member of the Tunkhannock Assembly of God, Church. She taught Sunday school and learned sign language in order to be able to communicate with her friends in the congregation who were hearing impaired. She worshipped the Lord through sign language. She “signed” every hymn she sang in church. Her favorite hymn was “Living for Jesus.” She was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, and a loyal friend. She continually and faithfully prayed for all three of her grandchildren’s salvation and she loved them out of the wellspring of her heart! She was a hard worker and a wonderful homemaker. There were homemade meals from scratch shared at the dinner table almost every night. She loved the color blue because she said it was the color of peace and happiness and blue could be found all through her home. She looked exceptionally beautiful when she wore blue. God graced her with the gift of hospitality in its truest form. She made people feel special and like they belonged. She lived intentionally and used her gifts to the glory of God. Her favorite saying was, “Where there is a will, there is a way.” She created many wonderful memories for her family and many others. She was a doer of the word. She shared everything she had. She considered others better than herself. She loved without expecting anything in return. She took in widows, single mothers, college kids, teenagers, and battered children. She touched many lives. She lived an authentic Christian life by simply allowing Christ to live His life through her. And He did it so beautifully! Her light shined brightly before others; His light. She really loved to laugh. She was full of life! Her eyes and her smile lit up a room. Her countenance was marked with the joy of the Lord! She left a legacy of love; a life lived worthy of the Lord. “Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers a multitude of sins. Offer hospitality to one another without grumbling. Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ.” 1 Peter 4:8-11 Survivors include Husband, Joseph Neeld of Tunkhannock, PA, daughters & son-in-law, Karen & William Ivens of Springville, PA, Rosanne Neeld of East Windsor, NJ, granddaughter, Jennifer Ivens, grandson, Williams J.
