Neill was born July 7, 1934 in Adams County, Iowa to Vern Howard and Dorothy Neill Wilmarth. He grew up attending Douglas #7 Country School in Adams County and graduated from the Corning High School, Corning, Iowa in 1952. After high school he joined the National Guard and started farming in Adams County Iowa. He met the love of his life and later married Donna Nolte of Mt. Etna, Iowa on August 25, 1954. To this union three children were born: Kay Ann, James Allen, and William Eugene.

Neill was a hardworking man that had a great love for God, his family and farming. Neill was a member of the Laura Street Baptist Church in Maryville, MO. He liked going to church and especially Sunday School where he made several friends. He worked many different jobs over the years, from being a farmhand, working for a survey crew, being a farmer, owning a grain elevator, crop spraying and fertilizer business, carpentry, mowing lawns, and maintenance man. There was not much that he couldn’t do! He enjoyed visiting with his kids and grandkids about what was going on in their lives and loved to hold the little ones, especially the last few years. He would have a grin that stretched from ear to ear when he was introduced to a new baby in the family.

Preceding Neill in death are: His wife Donna Wilmarths, parents, Vern Wilmarth and Dorothy Schmitz, his son, James Allen Wilmarth and daughter, Kay Ann Fahlgren.

Left to cherish Neill’s memory are his son, Bill (Elaine) Wilmarth, daughter in law, Pam Wilmarth, 5 grandchildren: Tricia Wilmarth, Donna (Willie) Sylvester, Bryan (Robin) Wilmarth, Eric (Lori) Wilmarth, and Holly Wilmarth. 8 great grandchildren: Kurt Helmick, Lily Sylvester, Madelynn, Trinity and Hayzlee Wilmarth, Marcus, Nathan, and Isaac Nunez. Sisters, Darleen (Hyatt) Rice and Pauline McCoy, brother, Harold Wilmarth.

May God comfort all that knew and loved Neill.
