Sharon Seehase
July 17, 1938 - June 7, 2012

Sharon Seehase, 73, of Oelwein and formerly of Independence, died Thursday, June 7, 2012 at Mercy Hospital in Oelwein.

A celebration of Sharon’s life will be held at 1PM on Friday, June 15 at the Geilenfeld Funeral Home in Oelwein.  There will not be a visitation held.  Memorials may be directed to Sharon’s family.

Sharon was born on July 17, 1938 in Moline, IL to parents Howard and Margaret (McCann) Stromer.  Sharon attended Rock Island High School, graduating in 1956.  On May 24, 1967 Sharon was united in marriage with Russell Seehase in Rock Island, IL.  They later divorced.  Sharon was employed by the United States Postal Service delivering Rural Route mail, and later a clerk at the Post Office in East Moline, IL until her retirement after 25 ½ years of service. 

Sharon was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Independence and the American Legion Auxiliary of Independence.  She loved playing BINGO and attending the Senior Centers of Independence and Oelwein, and conversation-especially on the phone.  Most of all, Sharon loved her family.  She will be dearly missed by all who knew her.

Left to celebrate Sharon’s life are her daughter Kasi Maakestad of Oelwein;  her grandchildren: Carrie, Katherine, Courtney and Kellieann Frush of Jesup, and Kaitlynn Maakestad-Seehase, Kenneddy and Kolten Maakestad of Oelwein; her sister Joan Groene of Milan, IL; and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews, and friends.

Let there be memories--fond recollections
of special occasions and everyday things.
Let your heart start on its journey to
healing by feeling the comfort remembering
brings. Let there be memories--pictures,
mementos,and favorite stories both funny and
sad. Let your mind wander the paths of remembrance,
reliving the joys and the good times you've had.
Let there be memories--signs that our loved ones
remain near in spirit long after they're gone...
tender, surprising, heartwarming, and welcome--sweet
proof of the promise that love will live on. May
warm memories surround you and bring you comfort.
Our thoughts are with during this difficult time..With Deepest Sympathy, Sandie, Bill, Margaret, Rob, and Will

This is a shock, and your mom will be missed my many. She was stubborn, but had a big heart,and would always let whatever teenager needed a place to stay into her home.

And the BINGO, she loved that!! I am so sorry for your loss Kasi,my thoughts will always be with you!

My cousin Sharon was a good soul. My Father (Chuck) and Mother (Jo, Sharon's Aunt)were very fond of Sharon. My Dad especially got a kick out of her. He always worked on her cars for her. One thing I remember about her is that Sharon was very intelligent and gregarious. I enjoyed her company. God Bless her and all her loved ones. Love, Pat Kirby
