August 12, 1938 - February 5, 2021
Another angel, Laoma (Neomi) Joan Pierce Teel, gained her wings Friday, February 5th, 2021. She passed from this world to the arms of Jesus surrounded by family and friends. Although our hearts are broken, we know that she is now free of earthly bonds and rejoicing with her family that is waiting with open arms. She was born August 12th, 1938 in Black Oak, Arkansas to John Christopher Pierce and Leua Rivers Shannon Pierce (aka Rose Lee Shannon Pierce). Her family moved to California where she met her future husband, John Carlton Teel. They married December 31st, 1955. He was in the United States Air Force, so their home was wherever he was stationed until retirement in 1973 and came back to Laurel. California, Texas, Colorado, Mississippi, and Germany were just some of homes. Mama was an awesome wife and mother and grandmother and sister. She loved to feed people, sew, garden; you name it, she did it well. She was loved by everyone who crossed her path and she loved them back, three times over. She is preceded in death by her husband, John Carlton Teel, a son, Garry Dean Teel, her mother, Leua Rivers Shannon Pierce, her father, John Christopher Pierce and several siblings, Christine Lolita Pierce Wyatt (Raymond), Virginia Esteen Pierce, Vurdis Lanzo Pierce (Betty), Naomi Jean Pierce Shaw (Robert), Monyeita Oyliala Pierce Kimmons Stroheker (Richard), Greta Sue Pierce, Ybona Ruth Pierce Moore Hernandez (Arnold), John Darrel Pierce (Pamela) and Jane (Janey) Sherrel Pierce Simmons (Robert). As you can see, they are having one heck of a family reunion!!!! She is survived by her youngest sister LaWanda Ann Pierce Davis (Paul), her daughter, Shannon Rachel Teel, her sons Carlton Duane Teel (Wendy) and James Darryl Teel. She is also survived by her grandchildren Cameron Michael Teel, Caitlynn Elizabeth Teel, Connor Nathaniel Teel and James Dean Brazel as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
