Nancy Lee Neal, 79, of Three Churches, passed away on Saturday, March 26, 2023, at Hampshire Memorial Hospital, Romney.

Born on April 16, 1943, in Washington, D.C., she was the daughter of the late Edward Hagan and Florence Stine Hagan and the granddaughter of the Stine family at Fort Collier in Winchester, Va.

The extended families include the Neal, Kalons, Shuck, Covey, Stanbery, Ryder and the White families.

Nancy was a faithful wife and friend having worked as a beautician, a buyer at Murphy’s, a clerk at Safeway, and a camp worker at Peterkin, Romney. She enjoyed doing and creating crafts, was part of the “Lamplighters program” at Mt. Rainier Christian Church and was the hostess for the Bible study at Faith Mountain. It was through Nancy that our 80 acres was named Faith Mountain due to her faith as a survivor of breast cancer in the early 90s. She was affiliated with the Chapel of the Cross.
