Neva Slump, 90

Neva Ann Slump, 90, Henderson, passed away Thursday, Dec. 7, 2023, at Good Samaritan Society in Red Oak.
Neva was born May 22, 1933 in Oakland, the daughter of Chet and Twyla (Hummel) Yeager. She was raised on a farm near Emerson and graduated from Emerson High School in 1951.
Neva was united in marriage to DeLaine Slump on Feb. 21, 1952. Four children were born to this union, Merrill, Darry, Debbie, and Chet. DeLaine and Neva lived on a
farm near Henderson, where Neva was an upstanding homemaker, raising her children and working on the farm alongside DeLaine enduring any work that needed to be done.
Neva was a longtime member and faithful servant of the Henderson Christian Church where she helped with Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Wednesday night worship and served
on countless committees. She belonged to numerous ladies clubs where she enjoyed camaraderie with many lifelong friends. Neva was an accomplished seamstress, gardener, decorator, and was known for her delicious
homemade meals and baked goodies. There was always an open invitation for anyone to take a seat at Neva’s dining table.
Neva loved spending time with DeLaine at their favorite vacation spot, Lake of the Ozarks, where they hosted family and countless friends with boat rides, card games, and food galore for many years. Spending
