OBITUARY ~ VADA OLIVE (SHAFER) DENHART

Vada Olive DENHART was born January 15, 1917 to Day and Vergie (ADAIR) SHAFER at Redding, Iowa. She graduated from Mount Ayr high school in 1934 and attended Graceland College in Lamoni, Iowa. Vada lived most all of her life in Mount Ayr, Iowa but did live in Redding and Blockton for a short time as a child.

She married John H. DENHART on August 30, 1936 in Mount Ayr. To this union was born a son, John Carlton, who died in infancy, and a daughter, Sybil Ann.

Vada was a superb homemaker, a very kind and loving wife and mother. John and Vada celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary on August 30 of this year at the Clearview Nursing Home where they have resided for the past two years.

Vada was a 50 year member of the United Methodist Church and the Order of Eastern Star of Mount Ayr and a past matron. She was a loving grandma to Kurt and Karlin and enjoyed keeping them as small children.

She also enjoyed the time she spent with her two great-grandchildren, Kyle and Natasha. Through the years she enjoyed canning and freezing the many goodies John raised in the garden and keeping an immaculate home. For fun she liked to work on skits with her dear friend, Margaret PLACE, for the drama club to which they both belonged. She also liked to play bridge, read, fish, hunt mushrooms and faithfully watched the Iowa Hawkeyes.

Vada passed away at the Ringgold County Hospital on September 11, 2002 at the age of 85.

She is survived by her loving husband, John of Clearview Home in Mount Ayr; two grandsons, Karlin KELLEY and wife Shelley of Fort Calhoun, Nebraska and Kurtis KELLEY and Diane WILKINSEN of Chelsea, Iowa; two great-grandchildren, Kyle and Natasha KELLEY of Fort Calhoun, Nebraska; a sister-in-law Dorothy L. ALLPRESS of Redding, California; several nieces and nephews; and a good many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents and infant son and two sisters-in-law, Ninabel STUCK and Mary L. HATTON.

Services were held at Wilson-Watson & Armstrong Funeral Home in Mount Ayr on Saturday, September 14, 2002. Edward L. SHIELDS conducted the service and music was provided by Jane THOMAS, organist, and Sean THOMAS, vocalist. Casket bearers were Kurtis KELLEY, Karlin KELLEY, Michael STUCK, Jim STUCK, Robert THOMAS, Lee BRAND and Dr. John PETERS.
