Neomia liked crafts, toll painting and helping Bob finish the amazing woodworking projects that they enjoyed selling year after year at Art in the Park. She had a love for camping; her favorite places included Stanley and Cascade. She loved her flowers! Neomia was always happy when she could look at her blooming flowers out the window.
Bob and Neomia spent the last many years playing hours of cards with their wonderful friends.
