Nettie Marie Bash
Nettie Marie Bash, 95, of Kahoka, MO, entered eternal life joining her beloved husband Marshall "Junior" and daughter Lois Jean in Heaven on Wednesday April 17, 2013.
She was born on January 24th 1918 in Winchester, MO. Nettie Marie was the first child of Glenn Hunziker, Sr. and Ernestine Mae Kennedy Hunziker and was named after her Grandmother Nettie Hunziker. On June 6, 1935 Nettie was united in marriage to Marshall Bash Jr. in Monroe, MO.
She was employed at Shellor Globe in Keokuk, IA for 10 years. She was a member of the Winchester Methodist Church where she played piano and later became a member of Bluff Springs Methodist Church in Canton, MO.
Nettie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and a gentle soul to all who knew her. She had a quiet inner strength that sustained her and supported those around her. She admired her brothers and sisters dearly and so proudly told stories of helping to raise her younger siblings. Her own family was her pride & joy and as her soul begins it's endless journey forever, she leaves behind beautiful memories to fill the hearts of those she left behind. She was naturally gifted in her culinary skills and her love for cooking was evidenced in the results. All to the benefit of those who broke bread in her modest kitchen or at the many family reunions which were always a priority. She tended her garden carefully and liked to share with others what she cultivated there. Her homestead and flower patches were given no less nurturing and she truly appreciated nature's beauty that surrounded her. Once she discovered that African Violets happened to thrive with an abundance of continuous flowers inside her home, she masterfully propagated in excess of 100 of them from a few parent stock plants. She was creative in the works of crocheting, needlepoint, quilting and sewing. She especially enjoyed a good joke and laughing while playing cards with family & friends. As testament to her love for laughter, she named her only pets (a pair of geese) Fibber & Molly after the Iconic American Radio Comedy series.
She is survived by her daughter, Patsy Ruth Moody and her husband Paul of Murfreesboro, TN; two grandchildren, Dana Rene (Mrs.Robert) Volke of Nolensville, TN; Geoffrey Marshall Bash and life-partner Timothy Wagner of Miami, FL; two great-grandchildren; Zachary Marshall and Trevor Robert Volke; one sister, Pauline Wood of Zion, IL; one brother, Earl Hunziker and his wife Gladys of Hamilton, IL; one sister -in-law, Lois Hunziker of Kahoka, MO and cherished, nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives & friends.
