Angela Warwick Neville, beloved wife, mother, nana, sister, aunt and friend, left life on earth with her husband by her side to join her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on the evening of August 12, 2022.
Angela was born in Robeson County, North Carolina, on October 19, 1937, the youngest of six children, to Joseph and Nora (Leggett} Warwick. Her family moved to Carolina Beach, NC when she was four years old, where she lived until adulthood. While living with her sister’s family in Rocky Mount, NC and working in their CPA firm, she met the love of her life, Graham R. Neville. They were married in Rocky Mount on May 17, 1964 and enjoyed over fifty-eight wonderful years together. Angela worked in accounting throughout her life and was a devoted partner to Graham both at work and home.
Family came first for Angela and she always put others before herself. Her community involvement revolved around church, her children’s school activities, and boy and girl scout leadership. She was very creative and shared her talents by participating in the local musical, beautifying the fellowship hall for special occasions, and writing clever, fun poems as gifts for others. Angela enjoyed playing tennis and golf, playing bridge, going to the symphony, dancing, and visiting with friends over long lunches. Angela moved through life with joy and her memory will be cherished by all who knew her well.
Angela is survived by her husband, Graham R. Neville; son, Davidson (Anne} Neville; daughter, Susan (Peter} Sidebottom; six grandchildren, Wesleigh Neville, Jackson Sidebottom, Vance Neville, Sterling Sidebottom, Malcolm Sidebottom, and Riley Sidebottom; and brother, Milton (Mary Ann} Warwick.
