Britta was born on Feb.16, 1958, in Hamburg Germany. At the age of ten, Britta and family moved to Australia. Three short years later, in 1972 her family again decided on a major move to Wilmington, NC.
This is where Britta grew into the wonderful woman that she became, and found the love of her life, James A. Gell. Britta and James were married in September 1976. That day started the rest of their life and the forty years that they spent together so much in love.
In 1979 Britta gave birth to her first born son, Kristopher Briant Gell, followed by second son, Aaron Scott Gell in 1985, completing their small but very loving family. Britta is preceded in death by her father, Karlheinz Hinrich Neu. Surviving are her mother, Karla Martha Neu, her husband, James A. Gell, her two sons, Aaron and Briant Gell, and her sister, Dagmar N. Cannon.
Britta was a very loving daughter, mother, wife, sister, and friend. She will never be forgotten but always missed.
Services will be held at the convenience of the family.
