Deborah Naomi Worden Neville went to sleep on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 and woke up in the presence her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

She was born in New Castle, Wyoming on March 18, 1953 to the parents of Vincent and Mary Worden. She grew up and went school in Hennessy, Oklahoma. Upon graduation from high school, she attended and graduated from Ozark Bible Institute in Neosho, Missouri in 1975. In 1974, she married Mike Neville to whom she was married to for the next 45 years.

She was a devoted, tender, loving mother and mom to her children, a loving wife, and close friend to her husband. Her closest friend was Jesus Christ, who gave her the inner strength and resolve to stand firm in her faith and proclaim His goodness and grace to any who was willing to listen.

She liked to fly fish, hike in the mountains, attend to and play with her grandchildren, and sew when she could find the time. One of her real passions was to teach Sunday School and Children’s Church, which she faithfully did for more than 40 years.

She is preceded in death by her parents. She has two brothers Paul (Rachael) Worden of Buffalo, Wyoming and Peter (Sharon) Worden of Hennessy, Oklahoma; two children Michelle (Justin) Faircloth of Cleveland, Texas and Christopher (Lyn) Neville of Las Vegas, Nevada; and four grandchildren Josiah, Anna, Isaiah and Shiloh whom she cherished beyond imagination.

She fought the good fight, she finished the race, she kept the faith. Finally, she has received her victor’s crown of righteousness. I can hear her now as she giggled her little, allfamiliar giggle when she was received by her best of all friends Christ Jesus.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at the Church of the Open Bible, 802 West Division Street, Hardin, Montana at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 23.

A private disposition will be held. Bullis Mortuary has been entrusted with the arrangements.
