Olin L. Shane

Olin L. Shane, age 89, died on Wednesday, September 20, 2017 at home surrounded by his loving family. He was born on September 15, 1928 in Rago, KS to Roy Mason and Alta “Ruth” Shane and was the third oldest of four children.  He was employed for over 30 years by Rock Island Motor Transit where he met his wife.  He was a family man, a long-time church goer and had a strong work ethic.


He was preceded in death by his parents and sisters, Wilma and Hazel. He is survived by his wife Katherine “Jane”, son Andrew Ray Shane, grandson Zachary Taylor Shane, daughter Nancy Ruth McCullough, her husband Samuel John, grandchildren Matthew “Shane”, Joshua John and Nadya Jane and his sister Doloros Miller all who will miss him dearly.


A memorial service will be held at 3:30 p.m. on October 7, 2017 at Covenant Christian Church at 2700 72nd Street in Urbandale, Iowa, with pastor Paul Witmer presiding and where Olin and Jane have attended for nearly 50 years.  A dinner will follow at the church at 5:00 p.m.  A private graveside service for immediate family will be held in Jefferson, Iowa at a later time.


The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff of UnityPoint Hospice at Home specifically for their attention and loving care. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Olin’s name to Unity Point Health Foundation and Covenant Christian Church.
