She loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Neeli especially enjoyed shopping trips with her family. The family enjoyed camping together, skiing and tubing at Lake Icaria. They loved going to various water parks. Neeli was a project driven woman! She spent many hours refurbishing houses and being the bookkeeper for their businesses. Neeli enjoyed keeping daily journals and was an avid reader. Neeli always looked forward to the summer time when she could enjoy her beautiful flowers around the pool area. The 4th of July was Neeli's favorite holiday. She loved the family fireworks at the country home. Neeli was the family "party planner".from birthdays to holidays. The event was well organized to the last detail. Neeli battled breast cancer several years ago and was a survivor.
