Neva Helen Hoffman Carson

Mrs. Neva Hoffman Carson, descendent of one of the early Sacramento area pioneers, Ancil Hoffman, was born on August 25th, 1919, in Dodge City, Kansas, to Henry and Irene Hoffman. Neva lived in Dodge City until she was 9, when her family moved to Farley, New Mexico. At the young age of 16, Neva was baptized in one of the local creeks. Neva lived in Farley until graduating High School as an Honor Student. After high school, Neva just packed up her things and headed off to Kansas, by herself, to attend Beauty College.
After graduating Beauty College, Neva opened her own beauty salon in Raton, New Mexico. It was in Raton where she met, fell in love with, and married Mr. George Melvin Carson in 1939. While living in New Mexico, George and Neva had three adorable children, George Henry, Dale and Judy. In 1950, the Carson Family packed up their things and headed off to California, where they settled in Bakersfield. Neva was employed for many years at Challenge Dairy.
During her life, Neva loved to travel, to visit family and friends throughout the United States, or just to travel to see new things. Neva's husband George, preceded her in death back in 1968, but this didn't stop her from traveling. One of the highlights of her travels was when she and a lady friend took off and toured Alaska, but as stated recently by Neva, her favorite memories were created during the summer vacations she and her family took to Bass Lake, California. Neva was very fashionable and loved the Holidays. These special days gave her a perfect opportunity to dress-up, and of course set a lovely table.
Neva loved to knit and crotchet, a talent that she really excelled at. She made many beautiful items as gifts for her family and friends. Those special homemade items were so loved and appreciated by those fortunate enough to receive one as a gift.
Neva wasn't known for one of the best of luck, and has had more than one harrowing experience. On one occasion, while working with her son Dale she was robbed at gunpoint. Neva was self sufficient and seemingly unafraid to just head out and get done what needed to get done. As evidence throughout her life, Neva was fearless!
To Neva, nothing was more inportant than her family. Neva was very close to her three children, and she adored her 7 grandchildren and more than a dozen great grandchildren. Neva has always remained extremely close to her sister Delena and her two brothers Albert and Roland "Rollie".
Neva passed away while living with her daughter Judy in Hanford, California on May 2, 2005. She was preceded in death by her husband George and son George Henry.
