Neville Virginia Tuck (Harris, Day)

Neville Virginia Tuck (Harris, Day), was born Sept. 26, 1921 in the Moriah community, to Florence Ragland (Talley) and Cordis Nathaniel Tuck, of Redbank, Virginia.

She was wed to James Foy Harris, and bore three sons of this union; Ronnie Love, James Gary (Jim, or Jimbo), and Anthony Dale (Tony). She survived her husband, and was later wed to James Carver Day. She was also preceded in death by James Carver, and by all ten of her brothers and sisters, Lurid, Ruby, Norman, Flemmie, Thomas, Herschel, Alma, Earnestine, Hope, and Carlton, and infant Mary Francis. Each of her three sons preceded her in death, as well. She was a resident of East Roxboro, and retired from Roxboro Cotton Mills (Tultex). She was a confirmed member of Grace United Methodist Church, where she was active in the United Methodist Women, and church choir.

Neville was grandmother of and survived by five grandchildren; Tammy L. Harris Wall and husband Andy, Ronnie Love Harris Jr (Deron), and wife Renee, Anthony Dale Harris Jr. (Andy) and wife Lynn, Kendall Douglas Harris, and Christian Dawn Harris (Christy). Great grandchildren are Ashley Harris Forbis, Casey Harris, Morgan Harris, Noah Wall Norris, Kaitlin Harris Martin, Sara Harris, Trevor Burnett, Alex Burnett, Alyssa Harris, and Emma Grace Harris. She was great-great grandmother of six. 

Neville loved music, and went dancing most weekends until her body was not able. Her greatest accomplishment in life was her children, and grandchildren.  Miss Neville never met a child that was not her own, from those in her own family, to those in her Sunday school classes, and those that belonged to others. She was a loving mother and grandmother to all, and she will be sadly, and painfully missed. Her mission in life was fulfilled, and she served her fellow man with an eye single to the glory of God.

A memorial service will be held at Grace United Methodist Church, 313 Church St., Roxboro, at 1 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 14, 2018. The fellowship hall will be open for family and friends immediately after the service, with refreshments served.
