Mary Ann (Hinnenkamp) Sheer

Mary Ann (Hinnenkamp) Sheer passed away peacefully on September 4, at Hospice House of Spokane.

Born on March 14, 1928 in Colfax, Wa., the seventh of eight children. She spent her early life on a farm between Colfax and Dusty. While in high school, the family moved to a farm in Steptoe, Wash. Growing up on the farm she learned the value and rewards of hard work.

Mom's many talents included sewing, knitting, cooking, baking and she was a pro quilter. Having quite a green thumb, she always had many flowers in her large yard. During retirement she decided to work and volunteer at the Sacred Heart Hospital gift shop and the info desk.

Mary Ann resided for 52 years in her home on the south hill of Spokane. In 2014, she moved to the Touchmark retirement home. Being close to her longtime friends and Fatima church were important, so it worked out well. Mom enjoyed playing cards, bowling, watching the Zags, sunrises at the farm and the moon coming up over Sundance while spending time with family at her Priest Lake cottage.

Her parents, John and Josephine; brothers, Jim, Walt and Joe; sisters, Joanna, Alma, Phyllis and Dorothy preceded her in death. Surviving are her children, Thomas (Nancy) Sheer and Janet (Scott) Peterson; grandchildren, Joshua, Alyxandria and Brittany Peterson, and Nicole and Sidney Sheer; and many nieces, nephews and close friends.

Visitation will be held on Friday, September 14th from 1-5 PM, at Hennessey Funeral Home, 2203 N. Division with a rosary following at 6 PM. A funeral mass will be held on Saturday, September 15th, at Fatima Catholic Church, 3327 S. Perry, Spokane, at 10 AM. Graveside services will be held in Colfax, WA.

Donations may be made to Hospice House South, Spokane or Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church. Condolences and memories may be posted on her tribute page at http://www.hennesseyfuneralhomes.com.
