Obituary for Marianne Sue Overaa

Marianne Sue Overaa was born June 23, 1929 in Tacoma, WA to Francis L. Peterson and Emanuel C. Schwanz. She was called “Little Susie” by Grandpa Peterson and from that time on was always known as Sue. She passed away on April 21, 2018.

The first part of her life was spent on the Schwanz farm where the Schwanz families raised livestock and hops. Her dad and mom later owned Hillside Dairy and delivered milk door to door.

She attended a one room school house in the old Whittier School House. For junior high and high school she made the long bus ride into Tacoma to attend Stewart Jr. High and later graduated from Lincoln High School.

She enjoyed dancing and met her husband Charles Overaa at the Spanaway Dance Pavilion. They were married in 1948 and later moved to a house they built on Canyon Road. Sue and Chuck enjoyed traveling and adventures with their friends Shirley and Frank Zlock.

In 1958 Chuck and Sue founded Fir Lane Memorial Park and later added a chapel and funeral home.

In 1970 Chuck and Sue purchased the old King Homestead overlooking Ohop Valley with a beautiful view of Mt. Rainier. Recently, due to Sue’s diligence, their home was added to the Pierce County Registry of Historic Places, a legacy of which she would be proud.

She was a member of Eastern Star and she enjoyed the time she spent with the girls of Faith Assembly 145. She was also a member of the Hoda Dance Club, Ohop Grange, and Spanaway Lyon’s Club and was one of the founding members of the Spanaway Historical Society.

She leaves behind daughters Teri Shelton (Steve) and Linda Thiel Estby, son Stace Overaa (Colleen), grandchildren Lee Shelton, Julie Impala, and Bryan (Dena) Overaa, great-grandchildren Cannon Impala and Elizabeth Overaa, her brother Pat Schwanz, and many other friends and family.

A Funeral Service will be held Friday, April 27th at 2 pm at Fir Lane Memorial Chapel; 924 E 176th Street, Spanaway. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Spanaway Historical Society.
