We come together to remember and celebrate the radiant life of Sharel
spears, known fondly as "Nana" or "Sis" to her loved ones. Sharel was
born on Dec. 20, 1949, in Kadoka, SD, to Lorin and Helen (Weaver) Good.

From a young age, she learned hard work by helping on the family farm.
She attended rural schools and graduated from Kadoka High School. Sharel
then began a thirty-plus year career at the Kadoka Clinic. Where she
demonstrated her caring and supportive nature. Sharel was a beacon of
love, laughter, and resilience. Sharel's ability to find humor and joy
in all of life's moments was a gift she generously shared with all who
knew her.

On Dec. 19, 1969 Sharel was united in marriage to Robert Leroy Spears,
Jr. Sharel was the cornerstone of her family, a loving wife to Robert
for almost 54 years. From this union came three daughters, Misti, Kristi
and Wendi. The family resided in Kadoka until Robert retired and they
moved to Wickenburg.

Sharel's smile and her passion for life was infectious and could be seen
in her love for 4-wheeling, camping, bowling, golfing, snowmobiling, and
playing cards with friends and family. Sharel relished the time spent
with her grandchildren and she never missed an opportunity to attend
their sporting events. Her ability to find the humor and joy in all
moments was a gift she shared with all who knew her.

Sharel's legacy of love, laughter, and strength lived on in her
surviving family: her husband, Robert Spears of Wickenburg; daughters,
Misti (Kevin) Strobel of Rapid City, SD, Kristi (Reiny) Stevahn of
Eugene Ore., and Wendi (Brian) Toth of Kileen, Texas; her grandchildren,
Jade (Michael) Coatney of Springfield, Ore., Hunter Stevahn of Rapid
City, SD, Nathaniel (Torrie) Toth of Rapid City, SD and Noah Toth of
Killeen, Texas; and her three great-grandchildren, Robert, Nataleigh,
and Derrek. She also leaves behind her brother, Rick (Lisa) Good and
sister-in-law, Reva Good; her precious dog, "Bella Lee" and a host of
many special friends.

Sharel was preceded in death by her parents, Lorin and Helen Good, and
her brother, Jerry Good. She will be deeply missed, yet her spirit
remains alive in the hearts of those she loved and those who loved her.
In the words of Helen Keller, "What we have once enjoyed we can never
lose. All that we love deeply becomes a part of us." Sharel's love,
laughter, and resilience are forever etched int the hearts of those she
leaves behind.

Memorial contributions and cards may be sent directly to Robert Spears
or to Wickenburg Funeral Home care of Robert Spears and the funeral home
will make sure it gets to Robert.

Please join us in celebrating Sharel's life by sharing your memories,
stories, and photos on her memorial page. Her family finds comfort in
knowing how much she touched the lives of others.
