Shirley Coleen (Schnoor) Pease was born at home on the family farm south of Farragut, IA on March 18, 1936 to Martin Dale and Marjorie Maxine (Raymond) Schnoor. Shirley was an only child and took to her Dad's side at an early age. She loved being with her Dad and learning everything there was to know about farming. They enjoyed fishing and taking family trips to Nevis, MN. She attended school in Farragut, where she met some lifelong friends and graduated in 1954.
Shirley married George Robert Pease on December 16, 1963 in Hot Springs, Arkansas. They had a very successful farming operation. Shirley worked side by side with Bob for many years and managed their farming operation. Winters were spent in Mesa, Arizona, where they met many other Fountain of the Sun residents and maintained many of those friendships for several years.
Sports played an important part of her life, either participating or as a spectator. In high school, she played basketball, softball, and participated in track. As a post guard, Shirley was the tallest on the team. She was on the varsity squad and started all four years, played in the state tournament for three years, and was an all state player. Later in life, she taught herself to play golf. Golf became her passion. She was a member of the Shenandoah Country Club Ladies Golf Association for many years as well as Fountain of the Sun Ladies Golf Association in Mesa, Arizona. Shirley thoroughly enjoyed the game and won many tournaments, was club champion at both, and had a few holes in one.
Later, she was able to do some traveling. She went with a group on a train trip across Canada as well as a fall bus tour of the northeastern United States. She enjoyed traveling with Dan and Marilyn to watch grandson, Craig, play college football. A couple of Branson trips were also made. Shirley attended several Nebraska volleyball games, including the national championship game in 2006. She loved a trip to Mackinac Island, Michigan with a small group of friends.
Shirley is survived by daughters: Marilyn (Supernaw) Gable and husband Dan, of LaVista, NE, Nancy York and husband Bill of Essex, IA, and Marti Gigstad and husband Bobb of Garnett, KS; sons: Mark Supernaw and wife Rita of Farragut, IA, and Robb Pease and wife Barb of Castle Rock, CO. Also surviving are ten grandchildren and sixteen great grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Bob Pease, and grandson Josh Meyer.

My sympathy to family and a ton of friends. As far back as I can remember, I could ALWAYS count on a great laugh ~ and maybe more ~ every time I visited with Shirley. Those visits started on the school bus to or from school. I shall miss her and love her forever. She will be in my daily prayers.
Marilyn and Mark. So glad I got the chance to see you Mom over Memorial weekend. Have
good memories. So for your loss. Carolyn Bredensteiner Badberg

Sorry to see that your mom has passed Nancy. Teresa Kirchert Reitzler
Shirley was a very big part of the lives of my family from my earliest memories to the time of her passing. She has left a void that can only be filled by those beautiful thoughts and memories. She will truly be missed by all of those who knew and loved her.
I hate to tell you but one of my favorite laugh out loud memories is with Shirley. When we cleaned out my Grandpa Leo Raymond’s house for auction, i came back from Shen on a coffee run to discover Shirley passing an electrical “massager” back and forth with my Aunt Patty to test it out on each others faces. Let’s just say that what Shirley and Patty said about that thing make me die laughing to this day! I almost wet my pants on tje stairs listening to those crazy fun ladies. What a fun, special lady Shirley was. She showed me how fun it is to be a “Raymond” ! Here’s to “Old Sparky”!!
sympathy and prayers to the family. Sorry for your loss. She was a nice lady and good friend.
So very sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. Will miss our visits at the school alumni banquet. Prayers to the family.
