REVA DARLENE (BATA) SHIFLETT
Reva Darlene SHIFLETT, was born July 11, 1932 near Diagonal, Iowa to Joseph F. and Fairy H. (JONES) BATA. She was
also welcome by an older sister Louise and later joined by sister Donna. Reva departed this life on December 20,
2007 in the Clearview home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.
Revie, as she was fondly known to most, grew up in the Diagonal community, attending the local high school where she
was active in sports.
She and Jack SHIFLETT were married and were blessed with two sons Steve and David.
Reva lived for a time in Humboldt and Kansas City before returning back to Diagonal and worked for a number of years
at Bunn in Creston. She owned and operated Revie’s Bar and Grill in Diagonal until her health forced her to retire.
She had many faithful customers during her years at Revie’s, people came for miles around for one of her hand made
breaded loins. The TAYLOR Reunion was always one of the highlights of the year.
Reva enjoyed gardening, and the Kansas City Chiefs was one of her favorites. But Sundays were always reserved for
family day, she loved each of her grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her son Steve and a brother in infancy Joseph BATA.

Monica CASTEEL, Karie and husband Brent WASTENEY, Pat SHIFLETT and friend Lindsay ROWAN, Chris SHIFLETT and Dana
SHIFLETT; great-grandchildren James David SHIFLETT and Kash Alan WASTENEY; sisters Louise FROIT and Donna McDONALD;
