Sharon LaVonne Hattig, 83, passed away Monday, November 16, 2020 at Parkview Care Center, Osborne, KS.
Sharon was born September 10, 1937 in North Loup, NE, the daughter of Howard and Edna (Baker) Preston. Sharon enjoyed several hobbies, one was collecting rabbits, she also loved the Nebraska Huskers and Nebraska was one of her favorite places to go. She also loved watching Cops, there was not a Saturday night where she was not in front of the TV doing so. You might of thought Sharon’s favorite color was red because she liked to wear the color so much, but she loved purple. A soft, light purple. She loved all the animals she ever had throughout her life, even a donkey called Dude that she fed a chocolate pudding cup too everyday. However, her love for her pet Pekingese Dee Dee was the greatest. She spent many hours of her life frying beef stew for Dee Dee. She believed in angels and knew that she would once see Dee Dee again.
Sharon worked at Red Field for quite some time of her life, where she made military night vision scopes. She would also shoot military guns and was known as one of the best sharp shooters around. Later in life, she worked as a CNA taking care of the mentally handicapped. She enjoyed spending time with them, they always listened to her and enjoyed her company.
She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Earl, son Russell Dale Geter, sister Shirley Phillips, two brothers, Joe and Jim Preston and a grandson Randy Chad Schamp.
Sharon is survived by two daughters, Dovie (Randy) Schamp of Gaylord, Cindy (Skelly) Frank of Minneapolis; daughter-in-law Carol Geter of Liberty, MO; former husband Wylie Post Geter of Las Vegas; granddaughters Kristine (Rob) Wright of Aurora, CO, Desiree (Rob) Runquist of El Dorado, KS, Krystle (Chris) Eakin of Phillipsburg; grandsons David (Meghann) Geter of Kansas City, MO, Chris Geter of Kansas City, MO, Shane (Melissa) Schamp of Galva, KS, Kyle Schamp of Gaylord; twelve great-grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
