Obituary for Altha Moore McNeil

Mrs. Altha McNeil, age 93 affectionately known to her friends and family as “Granny” passed away after an extended illness on Tuesday, January 8, 2019. A native of Wilkes County, NC, she and her first husband Charles Faw moved to Damascus, VA around 1947 to manage a Smithey’s Department Store. She lived in Damascus until Charles died in July 1978. She remarried her second husband Thomas McNeil in 1981. They moved to Maryland for a short period of time before they returned to Damascus. After Thomas died in 1996, she moved back to Wilkes County, NC where she lived in her childhood home until 2016. With failing health she moved to Thomasville, NC to live with her daughter Judy until her death.

Altha “Granny” was preceded in death by her parents; Odell and Ella Moore, a brother, Paul Moore, an infant brother, Howard, her first husband, Charles Faw and her second husband, Thomas McNeil. Altha is survived by her children; Judy Butler (Roger) of Thomasville, NC and Eddie Faw (Ann) of Burnsville, NC.

Altha loved her family and was proud to host a semi-annual family get together where she included family and friends from all facets of her life. She was a warm loving person who never met a stranger and always a had a smile and a positive attitude. And most importantly she loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
