A Celebration of Life Service for Heather Elizabeth Brown Neiman will be held Friday, at 11 a.m., at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. There will be a private burial service. Robert Barham Family Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
Mrs. Neiman, 34, of Meridian, died Saturday, Jan. 19, 2013, at her home. She was born on Sept. 30, 1978. She was a fun loving and an artistic person. Those who loved her will always remember her beautiful smile. She was born with severe birth defects and McCune-Albright syndrome, a genetic disease that affects the bones and pigmentation of the skin. Heather was greatly challenged but never let her disabilities define her abilities. The greatest joys in her life were her niece and nephews: Caleb, Sydney and Sims, and she made certain they knew “Aunt B” loved them. Heather was a sweet and loving wife, daughter, sister and aunt. She loved to cook and her dishes were the highlight of the holiday meal. She loved animals, especially her cherished yorkie’s. Heather will be dearly missed by all who knew her. We take great comfort in knowing that Heather is now with Jesus and she is no longer is suffering. Her tears have been wiped away; there is no more pain and no more mourning.
Survivors include her husband, David Neiman; parents, Brenda and Lewis Sells; sisters: Dina Simpson (Chad) and Saundra Strong (Jason); and, nieces and nephews: Caleb Simpson, Sydney Strong and Sims Strong.
She was preceded in death by her beloved grandparents, David and Daisy McCary; aunt, Mattie Smith; and, uncles: Thomas A. McCary and Travis Smith.
