Neva Allee

Neva Sue Rauch Allee was born July 1st, 1949, in Maryville, Missouri, to Louis and Jessie (Wilson) Rauch of Sheridan, MO. Neva graduated from Sheridan High School in 1967. On January 30th, 1971, Neva Sue was joined in marriage to Edmond Wayne Allee in Sheridan, MO, where they resided until moving to their forever home in Diagonal, IA February 1976. To this union, they were blessed with four sons, Robert Ivan, Edmond Lewis, Doy Allen, and Travis Wayne. 

            During her high school years, Neva excelled in basketball and choir. As an accomplished vocalist, she thoroughly enjoyed her years performing and was the designated Roadie for the Midnite Special’s band. As with all activities throughout her lifetime, Neva made lifelong friends, and those friendships increased in number as the years progressed. She was an active member of the community and never slowed down when there was a task that either could be completed or needed completing. 

            Neva served as the accounts manager for Sur-Gro Plant Food Company and retired in 2019 after 45 years of service but continued to check in and provide support from time to time. 

            Neva was, without a doubt, the matriarch of the family. Her family was her world, and her quick humor and familial stories always made family gatherings all the more special. Mom/Grandma could quickly turn things around when things started to get a little rowdy. She was an avid sports fan and enjoyed her children and grandchildren’s hundreds of sporting events over the years.

            Neva cooked for the masses, from the early days of preparing those pre-game meals for her sons and “adopted” sons; to the many family holidays, Sur-Gro holiday parties, and customer appreciation events. Those who were blessed to have tasted her cooking know that you didn’t turn down that treat when offered. 

            Ed and Neva loved to travel, and some of those travels were enjoyed amongst close friends and family. A few favorite travels included cruises in the Mediterranean, trips to Nashville and Florida, and traveling to Aruba, Hawaii, Las Vegas, and Mexico.  Neva passed away on April 12, 2022.

            Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 51 years, Edmond, children Robert (Mary) Allee of Columbia, MO, Edmond (Kelly) Allee of Diagonal, IA, Allen (Jamie) Allee of Grant City, MO.; father-in-law Doy Allee of Grant City, MO.; sister-in-law Pam (Larry) Shore of Clarinda, IA, sister-in-law Ruby of Sheridan, MO, sister-in-law Lisa (Robert) Reidlinger of Clyde, MO, sister Linda (Jim) Shryock of St. Joe, MO, brother Ron (Carma) Rauch of Grant City, MO, brother Jerry (Val) Rauch of Sheridan, MO; eight grandchildren, two great-granddaughters; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family, and dear friends. Memorials are to the Diagonal Community Building and the Sheridan Community Building.
