Obituary for Neita O. Brady

August 12, 1925 - August 16, 2019
San Antonio, Texas | Age 94


Neita "Deetie" Brady, age 94, passed away on August 16, 2019 at home in San Antonio, Texas surrounded by her family.

Neita was born August 12, 1925 in Little Rock, Arkansas to Rex Edgar O'Neal and Justa Louise O'Neal. She graduated from Hot Springs High School. She married her high school sweetheart, Stanley Hardin, before he went off to war. They were married for 3 years and the marriage ended in divorce. She then moved from Arkansas to California. As a single mom, she attended business college with the help of her parents and started work as a secretary.

She married Edward W. Brady on June 23, 1951 and they were married for 46 years. She worked as an executive secretary for various banks for approximately 30 years. She regularly donated to the Disabled American Veterans organization and raised funds for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society by going door-to-door. She attended Alamo City Church since 1994.

Neita had a strength about her that was steady and quiet. She looked for the good in others and knew how to let things go. She loved God, her family, her pets, and her "pops" (popsicles).

Neita is survived by her daughter, Gail Hardin; 3 grandchildren, Peter DePascalis, Lora Edgett, and Lisa DePascalis; 19 great grandchildren and 1 great great granddaughter. She is also survived by 2 nieces, Lynn Athanas and Amanda Athanas and their children, Robert Foust and Winston Sherman McMahon.

Neita is preceded in death by her stepdaughter, Lynne Mayhew; by her identical twin sister, Norma "Dautie" Athanas; and by her husband, Edward W. Brady.

She will be greatly missed for her sense of humor, sparkle in her eyes and her loving devotion to her family.

The family will receive friends from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., Wednesday, August 21, 2019, at Porter Loring Mortuary North.
