Deltha Gaida


Deltha Jane Nehr Gaida, 83, passed away at home on Jan. 31, 2018.

She will be buried in the Oakwood Cemetery with arrangements through Riley Funeral Home.

Mrs. Gaida was born May 14, 1934, in Mason County to Ben and Angeline Nehr.

During her years in Hamilton, she worked as a bookkeeper for Farmers Propane and later for Ramon Haile CPA.  However, her most enjoyable work was raising sheep, goats and cattle on their small ranch and if asked, her husband would always tell you that she was the real rancher. She will be missed by everyone who knew her.

She was preceded in death by her parents; a twin sister, Esther Jean Nehr, who was married to Morris Halliburton; and a brother, William Nehr.

Survivors include her husband of 47 years, Robert Gaida of Hamilton; two daughters; Debbie Wall-Smith of Hamilton and Terri Garza and husband Jon of Midlothian; a son, Kelly Johnson and wife Nancy of Midlothian; four grandchildren, Jason Wall and wife Kimberly, Josh Wall and wife Jackie, Audree Johnson and Zack Eddleman; two great-grandchildren, Dax and Gavin Wall; and three step grandchildren, Kevin Garza and wife Megan, Andrea Garza and Maddy Garza; two sisters, Carolyn Curtis and husband Gerald of Junction and D’Ann Green and husband Gary of Llano; and two brothers, John Corky Nehr of Sherman and Charles Nehr of Bellmead.
