Honoring the family’s wishes, there will be a private family funeral with no visitation services held at Chambers Funeral Home, Eldridge, IA. A Celebration of Life may be held at a later date.

Schary was born on May 11, 1948, in Cedar Rapids, IA, to Robert and Carol (Brush) Hubacek. She was a 1966 graduate of George Washington High School and a graduate of the University of Iowa.

Schary was united in marriage to the love of her life, Gary F. Shouse, on January 24, 1970 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She was a woman of many talents and did everything from teaching aerobics (561) to selling real estate, then becoming a Marketing Director for Senior Living. Most importantly, she was a devoted mother spending time at home with her girls, Jen and Becky, before heading back into the professional world.

In 1990, Schary, Gary, and their daughters moved to Plymouth, Minnesota and discovered their true love of “UP NORTH”. Many fun times and memories were made at their lake home in Danbury, Wisconsin. Schary loved being on the water and golfing weekly in her women’s league. She loved cooking, entertaining, being with friends and family, especially her kids and grandkids.

Those left to honor Schary’s memory include her daughters, Jen Shouse of Des Moines, Iowa and Becky (Kris) Carter of Chesterton, Indiana; her grandchildren, Lillian and Samuel Carter, Makayla, Cooper and Brayden Genck of Waukee, Iowa; her sisters in law, Pamela (Kevin) Kerker of Pennsylvania, Pennie (Rick) Engler of Eldridge, Brenda (Joe) Drummond of Long Grove, Iowa; her brother in law, Carey (Bob) Shouse of Moline, Illinois; and her nieces and nephews, Kate Frye, Valerin Morris, James Gimbel, Rachel Burmeister, Nikki Roth and Ben Engler.

Schary was preceded in death by her husband; parents; her in-laws; her sister, Susan; her brother-in-law, Tom; and nephew, Pete Miller.

Schary’s family would like to send a heartfelt thank you to the staff at The Residences at Coffee Creek and Duneland Hospice for the amazing love and care given to Schary and her family.
