Nekata graduated from Waldo, Arkansas in 1940 and moved to Oklahoma City at 18 years old and attended Draughon's Business School. She began working at TAFB where she met her future husband Warren G.

After his return they moved to Montezuma, Ks where they resided for five years. They then moved back to OKC to raise their family. Nekata and Warren had four children. She was a very outgoing lady that loved her family and friends and church family. She had many hobbies. She loved sewing of all kinds, quilting, handwork, reading, painting and flower gardening. She was an avid sports fan that loved OU and Dallas Cowboy football. She also never wanted to miss her grandchildren's sporting events. She enjoyed traveling with her friends and also was very active in her church. She and Warren were members of the Happy Travelers of First Baptist Church of Midwest City.
