On June13, 2013, Neva Nell Palmer Kite entered into her long-awaited home, and she is now singing with the angels.

Neva was born Aug. 29, 1922, to Gertrude and Brady Palmer in Sulphur Springs, Texas. In school, she excelled at academics and music. While attending college, she met the love of her life, Haun Kite, where they both majored in music. They married in Antlers, Okla., July 31, 1941, and were married almost 72 years.

An artistic and intelligent woman, she was accomplished in so many areas: voice, violin, piano, art, sewing and so much more. She was a Bible teacher and spoke at many colleges. She had a natural gift of making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Her only vice is that she was a chocoholic.

She was preceded in death by her parents, three sisters and one brother.


Survivors are her husband, Haun Kite; three daughters, Lou Nell Marcear and husband Dick, Joy Crass and husband Bob and Dayna Hooper and husband Dan. She also leaves five grandchildren, Rick, Kayla, D’Nan, Kent and Carrie; 15 great-grandchildren and four great-great-grandchildren.
