Births and Deaths of Susanna and Willie Shane

Susan and Robert Shane were parents to three children, my dad and his siblings Susanna and Willie.  Sadly, neither Susanna nor Willie lived beyond childhood and are buried at Sacred Heart Cemetery in Monticello, Iowa.  Susan (Samels) Shane made a handwritten list of her children’s birth dates and in the cases of Susanna and Willie the death dates are listed as well.  How hard it must have been on her Mother’s heart to list the deaths of two of her children!
