SHATTUCK MEMORIAL CEMETERY


Virginia Lee (Berry) Peetoom was born October 14, 1926  in Buffalo, OK to Harold W. and Fern (Carter) Berry.  She passed peacefully from this life in her home in Shattuck, OK on October 4, 2018.

Virginia spent her early childhood in Rosston, OK after which her family moved to Laverne, OK where she graduated from Laverne High School.  One of her activities was serving  as drum major for the band.  During a parade in which the band was participating, Willie Peetoom, Jr. spotted her.  Having mutual friends, they met and started dating.  They were married in Dodge City, KS January 9, 1947.

The couple moved to Kay County, OK and set up farming.  While living there, their two children Sue Ann (Peetoom) Schoenhals and William Van (Bill) Peetoom were born.  During the summer of 1962 the family moved to a farm northwest of Shattuck where Willie and Virginia remained until they retired and moved  in to Shattuck. While living in the Catesby area, she enjoyed writing the Catesby column for the NWO and she worked several years for Ruffin's Dry Goods Store.

Virginia enjoyed visiting with friends.  She was an outstanding seamstress who made much of her own clothing including her square dance attire. Square dancing with friends was a special enjoyment for Willie and her. They traveled far and wide to participate in a good dance even to the point of taking a square dance cruise which Virginia did not get to enjoy very much due to sea sickness. One of her favorite things was extension club.  She was active in Calico Club from the time she moved to Ellis Co. until her death.  After moving to town, Virginia was very active in several civic organizations.  The Chamber of Commerce named her Citizen of the Year  2002-2003.  Her church family was very important to her.  She was active in the United Methodist Women organization serving in several officer positions as she did in most of the organizations to which she belonged.

Virginia leaves behind: her children Sue and husband Doug Schoenhals,  Bill and wife Ann all of Shattuck, two grandsons Jason Schoenhals and wife Heather, Paige and Joe Cooper of Broken Arrow and W. A. Peetoom and wife Stephanie, and sons Will, Josh and Alex of Stillwater, OK,  sisters-in-law Naomi Bradley of Shattuck and RoseMarie Berry of Laverne, six nieces and nephews and a host of friends.

She was preceded in death by her husband Willie, her parents and her brother Harold D. Berry and brother-in-law Willard Bradley.
