Introduce me to your family.
I married a wonderful man, Charles P. Neese. He was in the Navy, and we were married two weeks before World War II was over. We have three children, two girls and a boy. I had 6 grandchildren, but we lost a little girl when she was a few months old. I have 8 great-grandchildren. I’m an only child. But my husband was the eldest of 11, so I had many nieces and nephews through marriage.
Why did you move to Market Common?
Myrtle Beach has been my home for 31 years. We moved to the Market Common 12 years this past July. After my husband passed away, I wanted a place where I could walk with ease, with easier upkeep. Where we live now is an HOA, and it includes weekly landscapers, and we don’t have to worry about the outside.
Where are all the places you came from?
I was born in Morgantown, West Virginia. When I married, I moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, then Myrtle Beach.
Do you have a favorite place in the Market Common?
Kings Street Grille, and I like Crepe Creations.
What’s your favorite thing about living in Market Common?
It’s an easy place to meet my other friends from different parts of Myrtle Beach, and it’s easy to get around.
What new activities have you taken up since moving here?
I’ve spent thousands of hours doing volunteer work. I never could when I was raising a family, but now I can.
What are your favorite things to do here?
Watch sports at King Street Grille, and watch movies at the Grand 14 cinema; I like going to the bookstore. It’s an interesting luxury place to get out and see people at your leisure.
