OBITUARY - LOUEVA COLLEEN (SHAUGHNESSY) McGEHEE
Loueva Colleen SHAUGHNESSY, daughter of Clifford and Leona (GRAVES) SHAUGHNESSY, was born November 14, 1914, in rural
Kellerton, Iowa. She passed away at the Iowa Methodist Medical Center in Des Moines, Iowa, on July 24, 2007, at the
age of 92 years, 8 months and 10 days.
She lived at Kellerton the first seven years of her life, then moving with the family to Delphos where they lived
until 1928. The family then came to Mount Ayr where she spent the remainder of her life. She attended school in
Ringgold County. She worked many years in restaurants and two grocery stores in Mount Ayr.
Loueva was married to Kenneth McGEHEE on May 28, 1931, in South Dakota. To this union two sons, Max Eugene "Ike"
McGEHEE, and Gerald Keith "Ted" McGEGEE, were born.
She was a loving wife, mother and grandmother who worked hard at her jobs and in her home – keeping her house
spotlessly clean and was a superb cook, collecting and enjoying cookbooks.
