Tyrone Tuesday afternoon at 4:30 o'clock. Sergeant Neil died of wounds received in combat
action in the European theatre Jan. 16, 1945. Sgt. Neil was the son of the late William L.
and Rebekah [Wighaman] Neil, and was born Oct. 30, 1919, in Tyrone. He received his
education in the Tyrone public schools, graduating with the class of 1937 from the Tyrone
High school. A member of the First Presbyterian church, he was also a member of the Tyrone
Players, Inc., Sgt. Neil played stellar roles in many of the productions of the company.
He was a member of the YMCA male chorus and of the high school glee club. He served, as
well, with the staff of the "High School Spokesman." A member of the art club,
Sgt. Neil had exceptional talents and his work in art was considered as outstanding. He
entered the armed forces Aug. 19, 1940, in Altoona, being assigned to the army medical
center, Walter Reed hospital, Washington, D. C. serving there until Jan. 23, 1942, when he
was chosen for the enlisted men's school of army finance at Fort Benjamin Harrison,
Indianapolis, Ind. After five months training, Sgt. Neil was graduated as a staff sergeant
and assigned to headquarters company, finance office, 80th Infantry division at Camp
Forrest, Tenn. In January 1943, he was transferred to headquarters company, finance
office, Fort Jackson, S.C., receiving the grade of technical sergeant. In August 1943, he
passed an examination for air cadet, going to Miami Beach, Fla., for basic training, then
entering Rookhurst college, Kansas City, Mo. The cadet program was curtailed, Sgt. Neil
being reassigned to the infantry at Chaffee, Ark., going from there to Fort Bragg, N.C.,
leaving for overseas in October 1944. Upon his arrival in France, he was assigned to the
398th Infantry regiment of the 100th Infantry division of the 7th army under command of
Major General Patch. In December 1944, he won the Combat Infantryman's badge and bronze
star, his regiment having seen action in some of the hardest fighting in eastern France,
struggling through rains, snow and mud to take Baccarat. It crossed the flooded Meurthe
river and forced the enemy beyond the Rhine river. Still later, in the drive on Raon
L'Etape, the regiment out-maneuvered the enemy's prepared defenses, taking strategic areas
to the east. Sgt. Neil was with the regiment during the major engagements, receiving his
fatal wounds in the area Jan. 16, 1945. His remains were interred in Epinal cemetery, one
of the burial grounds where rest the dead of the First World war. Surviving the sergeant
is his mother, Mrs. Rebekah Neil; two brothers, Wilbur L. and Ralph E. Neil, both of
Tyrone, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles R. Mengal of Tyrone and
Mrs. Walter L. Kinsel of Altoona. His body will be removed to the Glass funeral parlors

We regret to announce the death of the wife of ? M. Mengel,
late of this county, at David City, week before last. We did not hear of it in time for
publication last week. Mrs. Mengel had many friends in this county who are deeply
afflicted by this bereavement and who were warmly attached to the deceased. The
Independent tenders the expression of its sympathy to all relatives and mourning friends.
I was notified by the AOG on 15 Feb 2005 that Jane Mary
Mengel died on 9 Feb 2005. Neither the AOG nor I has any information regarding
what caused her death.
You may send condolences to her parents:

A memorial service was held on 13 February at Modesto
Junior College, Student Center, 435 College Ave., Modesto, CA 95350.
In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to:
The Sierra Club
85 Second St., 2nd Floor
San Francisco, CA 94105-3441
or you can donate on-line at https://ww2.sierraclub.org/membership/donate/.
The 2004 Register of Graduates says that Jane resigned her
commission in 1990 as a Captain. She was a navigator, and had been assigned as an
instructor at Mather when she separated.
A Google search seems to indicate that she was a
math/science/engineering instructor at Modesto Junior College at the time of her death.
That's all the information I have at this time. I'm sure I speak for the class when I say
our hearts go out to Jane's family. Our thoughts and prayers are with them all.

|Anna G. (Mengel) Watts
WATTS, ANNA G. (nee Mengel), 87 - of Vineland, went to be with the Lord on June 19, 2006.
She was the youngest of five children born to Robert and Kathryn Mengel on June 23, 1918
in Frackville, PA. Her sisters often sang in church; and, by the time Anna was old enough
to sing with them, the only part left in the quartet was bass. Although she could sing
almost any part, bass was fun; as she strummed her guitar, singing seemed a natural
expression of her deep faith. Her oldest sister, Ruth, sang alto and played the autoharp.
The quartet grew in popularity and the sisters found themselves traveling by train to
churches in the Delmarva Peninsula The Mengel sisters found themselves singing in the
church of Edgar E. Watts (the four Mengel sisters were destined to meet the four Watts
brothers). Anna and Earl Watts soon began dating and married in 1941. Earl, a young
Wesleyan pastor, depended on his wife to play the piano, sing solos in church, teach him
to sing (a major undertaking), teach Sunday School, and along the way, raise their four
children. Anna loved to write and often wrote poems as a means of expression, receiving
awards for a couple of the poems she submitted in cons. Married to Earl for 45 years, Anna
faithfully served with her husband in the Wesleyan Church. In one of his last sermons,
Earl expressed it best by stating, "During these years, faithfully toiling by my side
has been my loyal wife, who played the piano in many of my pastorates. She has been Sunday
School teacher, choir director, special singer, substitute preacher in my absence from the
pulpit and church janitor...unsalaried, an unpaid worker in the church, to whom I owe a
tremendous debt for these 45 years of fruitful service." Following Earl's death, Anna
continued to live with her daughters, Marilyn and Beverly Watts. The family planned a
surprise birthday party for her when she was 80 and a beaming Anna recounted stories of
her past. As an evening of fun concluded, it was clear that Anna's pride and delight was
always her children and grandchildren. Her love for family and friends was eternal.
Surviving are her children, Wellington E. Watts II (Nancy) of Glassboro, Marilyn A. of
Vineland, Ronald B. (Candy) of Linwood, Beverly E. of Vineland; grandchildren, Wellington
E. Watts III, Lindsay A. and Jordan M; sister Ruth M. Schaltenbrand, and nieces and
nephews. Funeral services will be held on Friday, June 23, at 11:00 a.m. in the Calvary
Hill Church, 535 Mullica Hill Rd., Glassboro, where friends may call Thursday evening from
7:00 to 9:00 p.m. and after 10:00 a.m. on Friday. Burial will be in Manahath Cemetery,
Glassboro. Contributions may be made in Anna's memory to: Ambassador Christian Academy
Scholarship Fund, 535 Mullica Hill Rd., Glassboro, NJ 08028; or First United Methodist
Church, Second & Pine Sts., Millville, NJ 08332; or Central United Methodist Church, 5
Marvin Ave., Linwood, NJ 08221. Arrangements by Mathis Funeral Home, Glassboro.
