Ferry Anne Neal, age 95, passed away on Monday, January 30, 2023 in Southlake, TX. She was born on October 6, 1927 in Evansville, Indiana to Virgil and Ruth Hilley Hall. She met her husband William H. Neal at Evansville College and married December 20, 1947. They were married for 68 years when he passed away at age 90.
Ferry was an only child and quite the character!! Up until the very end, she continued to make people laugh. She died at Discovery Village Assisted Living where she lived for nine years and was deeply loved by her wonderful caregivers. She spent lots of time fishing with her Dad when she was young. She started playing Bridge at age 13 and always enjoyed a good game of poker, often with a gin and tonic in hand. She loved playing golf at the Owensboro Country Club and she enjoyed nothing more than a good party where she loved to dance and play games.
Ferry is survived by her three children and their spouses; Diane and James Bacus of Gainesville, Florida, David and Kathy Neal of Key Biscayne, Florida, and Karen and Gary Smith of Southlake, Texas; grandchildren, Aaron Bacus, Brian Bacus, Mark Bacus, MacKenzie Straub Wallace, David Neal, Justin Neal, Emily Gaume and Neal Smith, 14 great grandchildren, and another on the way.
Please join us in celebrating her life at 4 PM Friday, April 28, at Glenn Funeral Home and Crematory in Owensboro. Visitation will be from 2 PM until time of the service at the funeral home. The dogwoods and azaleas are now in bloom. It was her favorite time of year and one of the things she missed most when she moved to Texas.
