Edna Elaine MacLellan Neighbor, 93, of St. George, Utah, passed away peacefully on December 4, 2021, surrounded by her family. Edna was born on April 15, 1928, in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, to Thomas and Minnie MacLellan. In 1947, at the age of 19, she met the love of her life, Abraham Neighbor, who was eight years her senior. After working together in a band for several years, they married on September 2, 1950, in Sedro-Woolley, Washington. Eleven months later they welcomed their first-born son, Jeffrey, and five additional children followed over the next nine years: Jonathan, Joseph, Justin, Jason, and Jeremy. Edna and Abraham were baptized members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints on December 28, 1952. In May of 1953, they moved their growing family to California. On March 7, 1961, they were sealed as an eternal family in the Los Angeles Temple. They remained in California until 1977 when they relocated to Utah. Edna worked at St. George Steel in St. George, Utah, and later at S & S Steel in Hurricane, Utah, until she retired at the age of 80. She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and served in multiple capacities throughout her life. Edna will long be remembered for her love of life, family, and country. Nothing in this world brought Edna more joy and happiness than when she was with her family. Edna was preceded in death by her husband, Abraham; her son, Jason; her parents, Thomas and Minnie; and her siblings, James, Grace, Guy, Faye, Clara, Leroy, Donald, and Billie. She is survived by her children, Jeffrey (Melanie) Neighbor of Ivins, Utah, Jonathan (Lorraine) Neighbor of Paragonah, Utah, Joseph (Cheryl) Neighbor of Alta Loma, California, Justin (Linda) Neighbor of Hurricane, Utah, and Jeremy (Rick) Bird of Brookside, Utah; her 28 grandchildren and 54 great-grandchildren; and her brother, Jack MacLellan.
