Birth: May 11
Escanaba
Delta County
Michigan, USA
Death: May 24, 1966
Ontario, Canada

Daughter of Irwin Austin Read and Bidilia 'Delia' McLean Read Wilson.

Birth year unclear. Early census records suggest that she was born in 1884 or 1883, later ones and a border crossing record indicate that it may have been 1885.

She was apparently baptized Mary Neva or Nevada Geraldine Read, but always referred to herself as Neva.

At the time of her death she was living near Sudbury, Ontario, with her daughter and son-in-law Margaret and Harold B. Glauser, and died in the back seat of a car en route to a hospital. Her death was recorded as Nevada Thornburn, registration number: 1966-05-022925.
