Neva Corwin Obituary

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Neva Corwin on Friday, May 19, 2023 our beloved mother, grandmother, and friend. Neva leaves behind cherished memories and her legacy will forever be treasured. She is survived by her children, Bernard Corwin of Morris, Illinois, Pamela Ward (husband Steve) of St. Elmo, Illinois, and Connie Enger of Sheridan, Wyoming. She was preceded in death by her husband, Nolan and son, Larry Corwin.

Memorial service will be on Wednesday, May 24, 2023 at 6:00 p.m. at the Christian Church in St. Elmo, Illinois with a 2-hour visitation prior to service. Memorials may be made to the St. Elmo Christian Church or the donor’s choice. Condolences may be expressed at

Born on April 3, 1935 in Scotland County, Missouri, Neva spent her formative years in Rutledge where she met Nolan Corwin, husband and father of her children. Throughout her adult life, Neva lived primarily in Morris, Illinois, where she raised her family. She was a pillar of strength, providing unwavering support to her four children. Neva's nurturing spirit extended to her 10 grandchildren, several great-grandchildren, and a few great-great-grandchildren too! She also opened her heart to create a family beyond blood relation and welcomed everyone she loved.

Neva embraced life's simple pleasures. She had a knack for hustling bingo, and her determination and luck once rewarded her with a $6,000 win - a moment of triumph that brought her great joy. She also delighted in finding hidden treasures at rummage sales. Neva's love for the arts led her to become a regular attendee at the Morris Theater Guild.

In her final years Neva lived in Saint Elmo, IL surrounded by family. She found community in St. Elmo Christian Church and enjoyed attending regularly with her dear friend Della Stewart. While we mourn the loss of Neva, let us also celebrate the life she lived and the immeasurable impact she made on the lives of those who knew her. May her soul find eternal peace, and may her memory be a source of comfort and inspiration to all who mourn her passing.
