Wendi Marie Green

June 25, 2020

Wendi Marie Green left this world loved by many.

Her favorite pastime was playing like a child with her nephew, Trey and her little cousin, Brooke. She was a beautiful woman. She would not go in public without her makeup being perfect or her clothing matching perfectly.

She would not leave her daddy alone on holidays, yet she would also make time for her step-dad, momma, brother and nephew.

Wendi often shared stories of how she was the boss of her little brother, Harry. Then things changed when he grew up. They had fun as children with lots of special memories!

Her favorite buddy was her aunt, Terryle who she tried her best to stay out of trouble with. Her Aunt Terryle was her second momma.

Wendi has a special aunt, Donna Bolling, who she loved with all her heart. She often spoke of the appreciation that she had for her aunt and her aunt had for her.

Wendi had one love of her life, Steve Keenan for the past 13 years and she will be missed so much by him and his mother, Sandy Keenan who was everyone’s mother figure.

But the most beautiful thing to share about Wendi’s life is that she accepted the Lord Jesus Christ into her heart the last weekend of her life as her best friend and cousin, Terra led her to Him.

Wendi would also sit and listen to her cousin, Gary Nick’s Story about Jesus and salvation. Gary Nick planted the seed for Terra to witness to her that special last weekend of her life.

She will surely be missed as her loved ones say their goodbyes to her as they thank God for where she is today, in the arms of our Dear Heavenly Father.

Preceded in death by, her grandparents, Nick and Loma Elliott, Johnnie Bolling Elliott, Carol Lee Green, Audria Hardy Zwally and her brother, Ronald Allen Hardy, Jr.

She leaves to cherish her memory, her father, Harry Green, Sr.; her mother Sherryle Elliott Hardy and special step dad, Ronald Hardy, Sr.; her brothers, Harry Green, Jr. and Ryne Hardy; special aunt, Terryle Gibson; special person in her life, Stephen Keenan, special aunt, Donna Bolling; and special cousin, Terra and cousin, Gary Nick. She leaves many aunts, uncles and cousins.

A special thank you to Pat Cravatt Hardy for the many jobs she has helped the family with during this time.

Serving as pallbearers are, Teddy Green, Drey Johns, Ryne Hardy, Rusty Hardy, Kenny Frye, and Steve Keenan.

Momma loves you.

The family will receive friends from 6PM to 8PM on Thursday, June 25, 2020 at Faith Chapel Funeral Home North.

William “Todd” Neal

June 25, 2020

Todd, as he was known to family and friends, was a 1999 graduate of Tate High School. He was known as a jack of all trades and held numerous jobs in construction, roofing and landscaping throughout his life. He was a generous friend and family member with a huge heart, who would literally give the shirt off his back. He had a great sense of humor. Those who knew Todd, even just a little, lost a shining light in their lives.
He will be missed every day by his parents Don and Patti, sons Derrick K. Neal and Jordan Goon all of Cantonment, daughter Lauren (Ted) Fisher, granddaughters Sadie and Payton of Beulah, Brothers James (Sarah) Groshong of Cantonment and Jason (Tracy) Neal of Sharpe, Ky.
