Brockport: Passed gently from this life March 30, 2018. Predeceased by her husband, Donald A. Mault. Survived by her children Donald G. (Christine), David, Gary (Anita), Diane (Mark) Hillman, and Barbara (Hernan) Mendoza; grandchildren Aimee (John) VanBortle, Michael (Jessica), Casey, Burton (fiancée Ashley Burek) and James (Stephany) Mault, Sara (fiancé Robert Cornish) and Aubrey Hillman; great-grandchildren Giovanni, Antonio, Michael, Logan and soon-to-arrive Neva Rose. Also survived by dear extended family including brother-in-law Richard Mault and former daughter-in-law Linda Mault; many, many friends, and her beloved dog Daisy.
A descendant of one of the Town of Sweden's founding families, Neva lived all her 91 years on the Stickney farm. Salutatorian of Brockport class of '44, she studied radiology technology in Philadelphia before returning to marry and raise her family. Neva retired as head cook at Lakeside Hospital, then volunteered there for many years. She'll be remembered for her wonderful cooking and green thumb; forever cherished for her quick wit and incredibly kind, giving and fun-loving nature. As she would have put it, "not bad for an old broad!"
Calling hours will be held from 1-3 PM on Thursday April 5th at the First Presbyterian Church, 35 State St., Brockport followed by a Celebration of Life Service at 3 PM.
In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to the Palliative Care Program at URMC: Palliative Care Program – Office of Advancement, P.O. Box 278996, E. River Rd., Rochester, NY 14627.
