Sierra Vista Herald (AZ) - May 1, 2012
Deceased Name: Allegra Lee (Fadely) Shank
Hiya, Mom! Here's your obituary from all of us:
Allegra Lee (Fadely) Shank, 89, wife of recently-deceased Air Force WWII
B-26 bomber pilot and aircraft commander, Sr. Master Sgt. Robert Earl Shank,
was welcomed into the outstretched arms of her Creator and Savior on the
morning of April 23, 2012, in Sierra Vista, Ariz.
She was the mother of six, grandmother of six, great-grandmother of five,
and is survived by her two younger sisters, Virginia Helms and Marjorie
Evans, both of Ohio.
College degreed (twice), one-time Journalist, decades-long professional
school teacher, violinist and pianist, Sunday school teacher and choir member …
the list is long of her personal and professional accomplishments, but what
is remembered about her most is her loving and dedicated desire to extend
benevolence toward her personal and extended family and friends in the
biblical credence which generates that same love towards others through the belief
in an Almighty God.
We celebrate your life, Mom, all of us, and are pleased to know you've been
released from your recent suffering, now finally witnessing the beautiful
glow of Heaven and the unlimited universe of your Creator.
P.S. We all wanna know, how's the music up there?
Bobby (Sandra), Lowell (deceased son, Vietnam), Tom (Lorri), Wayne (Cheri),
Alex (Ernie) and Jan (Dawn), your other extended family and friends.
