Was born in the mountains above Mora, New Mexico on June 15th, 1936. She spent her youth in Santa Fe, New Mexico where she met her husband of over 50 years, Otis Wilson. They married in Lovington, New Mexico on March 15th, 1955, while Otis was working on oil pipeline projects. They settled in Tulsa, Ok in 1960 and lived there until June of 1983, when they returned to New Mexico and opened Rainy Mountain Trading Post in Taos on the south side of The Plaza. They later opened a second store, Western Heritage Art Gallery. Otis and Neva were well known gallery owners on The Plaza, and enjoyed their business friends and customers for many years. In 1998 they moved to the north side of The Plaza and combined their galleries to form their new store, Six Directions. Neva continued to run their gallery alone after Otis died in 2007. She retired in September 2014, selling her gallery, and moving back to Oklahoma to live closer to her son Jim and his family. After several years of declining health, Neva passed away April 7th, 2022. Neva is survived by her daughter Laura Haskins and her son Jim Wilson, and grandchildren Matthew Trevathan, Alex, Rachel and Eric Wilson, her brother Bob Payne of Bloomfield, New Mexico, and many beloved nieces and nephews, especially her niece Anna Allcorn Stewart, formally of Angel Fire, New Mexico. Her greatest joys in life were her children and grand-children, so in lieu of flowers, please donate to a children’s charity of your choice. Christian services will be held on April 21st, in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.
