Neoma grew up in Oklahoma, Kansas and Missouri and graduated from Marionville High School. For several years she was the Postmaster in Kingsdown, Kansas and later moved to Shell Knob to make her home. Some of the things she enjoyed was running the church bus ministry in Shell Knob with her husband Arnold and lending a hand to anyone that needed it, rather friend or stranger. Many would say she was best known for her big heart and bringing people together. She had been a member of Order Of The Eastern Star, First Baptist Church in Shell Knob and was currently a member of First Baptist Church in Lowell, Arkansas.
