On April 15, 1955, Neta was united in marriage to Ardee "John" Henry Jr. The couple made their

Nevada and Ames, Harlan's Grocery in Story City, was the manager of Casey's in Jewell and

westerns and traveling the western part of the United States. She could also be found relaxing
while having a fresh cup of Folgers coffee while reading a book. Most of all, Neta cherished
time spent with her family and many gatherings they shared together.
