Anita Shuey Obituary, First United Methodist Church of Marianna Member Has Passed Away

Anita Shuey Obituary, Death – Anita Sue Shuey, 93, of St. Louis, Missouri, passed away on July 17, 2023, at deGreeff Hospice House in St. Louis. She was born on March 13, 1930, in Portia, Arkansas, to Beulah Land (Roberts) and Elba Rainey. Anita’s early years were spent in Muscatine and Burlington, Iowa, but the family later moved to Owensville, Missouri, where she graduated from Owensville High School in 1948.

Anita’s adventurous spirit and determination were evident even during her high school years when she petitioned the school board to have a prom dance and played a crucial role in starting a yearbook. In 1950, she married August Frank Latall, and together they had two children, Randolph Allan, and Denise Lynn. Settling in Florissant, Missouri, they bought their first home on the GI bill.

Anita pursued further education while working as a waitress and hostess, mastering teletype skills that led her to work at the Federal Records Center on Page Avenue. In 1967, Anita moved to Cuba, Missouri, where she continued her career as a clerk stenographer for the Army at Fort Leonard Wood. In 1969, she married Claude Shuey, and they lived together until Claude’s passing in 1984.

Anita then moved to Marianna, Florida, where she enjoyed calling Bingo games and retired as a secretary for the Board of Realtors at the age of 71. She cherished her social gatherings at First United Methodist Church in Marianna and the Senior Center, staying connected to the community and her dear friend Leola Vlieg.

Anita had a keen eye for antiques, and her homes were a reflection of her tasteful collections. She enjoyed sewing, crafting, and being a devoted homemaker. Her love for her family was evident in her prayers for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, praying that they would grow in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.

She is survived by her son Randy Latall (Patty) of Springfield, Missouri, and Denise Pyles (Clif) of Fenton, Missouri, along with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nephews, and nieces. Anita was preceded in death by her parents and brothers Kenneth, Gary, and Donald. Anita cherished her independence and made a profound impact on those who knew her.

She will be greatly missed by her “new” family at First Baptist Church in Fenton and her beloved family and friends. In lieu of flowers, the family kindly requests considering a donation to Habitat for Humanity or either First United Methodist Church in Marianna, Florida or First Baptist Church of Fenton, Missouri. These contributions will honor her memory and continue the spirit of kindness and giving that Anita exemplified throughout her life.
