    Notes 
    • Alma Rose Neal, 8th child of Stewart and Mary Neal (n. Bottcher) was born on 10th December 1911 at St Peters, New South Wales, Australia. She was a sickly baby and was not expected to live, but survived to marry and have 6 children, 10 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. She had brown hair with reddish tints, brown eyes and was 1.5m tall. She possibly took after Wilhelmina - her grandmother.
      Rose as he was always called, was a great cook, great listener, a wonderful mother, was very attractive and always had a redy smil and a kind word for everyone.
      At the age of 18 she worked at the Stedmans Confectionery Company, where she met Phylis Faint (Cecil's sister). When Phylis invited Alma home for dinner, Cecil and his cousin Aubrey, decided they would escort Alma to the tram stop. After a discussion Cecil won, and escorted alma home. So after a short courtship they married at St Peters Church of England on the 25th January 1930.
      The early years of their life was very difficult, during the depression Ce4cil was retrenched and they were forced to live with family members.
      Then came the war years, alma battled on during the war when Cecil enlisted and left her at home with 4 young children. It was a very harrowing time for everyone and it took it's toll on her.
      They overcame their difficulties and went on to own their own home in Mascot and eventually retired to the Centrl Coast after a most eventful life.
      Cecil died on the 22 September 1995 and Rose followed him on 29th August 1999.
      Rose and Cecil are Remembered by their children as:
      "Loving Parents, mum was a great cook and housekeeper and dad was a very hard worker. We might not have had a lot of money, but we had a lot of love and never wanted for anything. We miss them very much."
