 Judith A. Neeld, 61, passed away peacefully on Friday, October 28, 2022 in her Virginia Beach home. She was a recent graduate of Brigham Young University Idaho, where she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Marriage and Family Studies. Judy met the love of her life Brian, while attending Ricks College.  Anxious to start a new chapter in life, the Neeld’s sealed their relationship in the Idaho Falls Temple and began their young family right away. Born to this couple were 3 beautiful children, Heather, Laura and Brian, Jr.

Judy’s life revolved around her family. She felt most complete when she knew they were safe and happy. In her spare time she found joy educating herself on a wide variety of topics in order to be well prepared to teach her children, grandchildren and anybody who would take time and show interest in listening to her points of view. She used her education to serve others in quiet and humble ways. She loved to cook and enjoyed sharing the spoils of her labor with those who don’t have the blessing of home cooked meals. Her reach to serve others goes beyond the veil of this life. She loved connecting her ancestral family through genealogical research. It has been a true comfort to her family to realize and understand that she is not alone on the other side and is welcomed with open arms by her eternal family.   Left behind to ponder and appreciate our time with her are her husband Brian Sr., daughters Heather and Laura, son Brian Jr. and son in-law George. She has three beautiful grandchildren, Georgia, Zoe, and Piper left to cherish the memories of their beloved Maw Maw. Judy has always expressed and practiced unconditional love of family.  Also left behind are her brother and sisters, her brothers and sisters in-law and their children. 

At Judy’s request there was a small private viewing with immediate family members. Her remains will be cremated and left with her family. A memorial will be held on November 26 at 11 a.m. at the LDS Chapel located at 2397 Newstead drive, Virginia Beach VA, 23454.

    In Lieu of flowers the family requests that you honor Judy’s memory by finding an act of service that you can offer to help another human being and make it happen.  As you do so you will understand what brought her joy in this life.

My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many fond memories of Judy. Meeting her so many years ago on a bus ride from Idaho to Washington D.C. Watching the love between she and Brian start on the return trip. Attending their marriage months later. Sharing many family gatherings. Having the same love of our wonderful in-laws and extended families. Judy had a big personality and even bigger heart. She was so smart and loved to learn. I am thankful that we were able to travel this path on earth together. Much love to Brian, Heather, Laura, BJ, Georgia,Piper and Zoe.

Sister Neeld was always such a good friend to the missionaries! She was wonderful to have out on lessons and I remember so many delicious meals at her home! She was a great mother to us while we were away from our own mothers. Sending lots of prayers and love

I new Judith from BYU-Idaho. I had the opportunity to learn from her during a class we had together. While I never got to meet her face to face, I know that she loves her family and she was a fierce defender of Christ. I am sorry for your loss. She was a special woman who had great influence on people (even the ones she met online). I wish all who are in pain from her passing peace, and comfort. Your family is in my prayers! Rest in peace my friend!

Sincerest condolences to the Neeld family for the temporary separation of you and your “warrior” mother. Judy was scrappy, and fiercely loved all of you. When I first met her, she scared me, and then I got to know and love the great woman that she was. I admired her strength and resiliency. If I may take a small bit of credit: I told her all the time that she needed to get a degree and become a therapist. She had all the instincts to be a great one. Eh, she didn’t need the degree. She was a great one.
I look forward to seeing her again. May you all be comforted in knowing that her love for you is forever.

I’m so sorry for your loss I know she loved her grandchildren more than anything she always spoke with so much love and pride about them. She was very strong in her Faiths and beliefs and would try to spread her knowledge to comfort others. You all are in my thoughts. Her time on earth is over but I have no doubt that everyone of you gained the best guardian Angel. Rest in eternal peace Aunt Judy.
