Published March 28, 2018
Della F. Wade, aged 91, died peacefully on March 23, 2018, at her home in La Cygne, Kan. Della was born July 22, 1926, in Independence, Mo., the daughter of Edward L. Cohee and Juley A. (Cox) Cohee.
Della graduated from La Cygne High School in the Class of 1944.
She married Roy Wade on July 22, 1946.
Della was preceded in death by her parents; and siblings, half sister Helen Ginsburg, Betty Cohee, Edith Ross and Roberta Johnson, and her brother Bernard Cohee.
Della is survived by her husband Roy M. Wade; her three sons and daughters-in-law, Dennis and Brenda Wade, Darrell and Carrie Wade, and Roger and Jodi Wade; her grandchildren, Carla (Wade) and Artie Snow, Denise (Wade) and Jeff Konitzer, Roy Ray and Heidi Wade, Haley (Wade) and Nathan Eck, Heather (Wade) and Jimmy Holzman,  David Wade and Harley Wade; her great grandchildren, Lacy (Snow) and Dalton Stockton, Tanner Snow, Kaleb, Kallie, Kooper and Kelsie Konitzer, Bowen, Jude, Josie and Ren Wade, Alaina and Hayden Eck, and Aharon and Rebecca Holzman.
In addition to raising her own children, Della was a surrogate mother to several in this community.
She had always been actively involved in sports, community activities and events. Della brought spirit and laughter to every conversation. When she meant business, she was always forthright with her opinion and advice; she would never “beat around the bush.” Della loved her country music and knew how to dance to any beat!
Della lived for her family and was strong in her faith. She reached out to others, prayed for them and offered guidance. Della was very proud of her country and honored the red, white and blue – she was a soldier who knew how to survive through anything life offered. She will be a true guardian angel in heaven.
Funeral service will be held 5:30 p.m. Friday March 30, 2018, at the Schneider Funeral Home and Crematory, La Cygne Chapel. Visitation will be held 4 p.m. to service time at the chapel. Private family burial will be held at Riverview Cemetery.
The family suggests contributions to Asana Hospice. Online condolences for the family can be left at www.scheniderfunerals.com
