She and Dennis owned and operated Indy’s College Bookstore on the IUPUI Campus for many years, before retiring. In her younger years, Neena enjoyed horseback riding, dancing, and singing. She was active with leading the church choir and Vacation Bible School at Heritage Christian Church in Mooresville and later was a faithful member of Mt. Gilead Church.
Her big heart and empathetic nature, lead her to volunteer at Camp Allendale and other places where there was a need. Whether it was buying coats for coat drives, donating furniture to help missionaries, she was always there behind the scenes living out her faith in serving others. Neena also had a creative side, often making Easter baskets for close friends and family members.
