Charlotte "Sherry" Christine Stauffer

May 26, 1949 ~ June 4, 2023 (age 74) 74 Years Old


Family and Friends are invited to celebrate the life of Charlotte “Sherry” C. (Kittoe) Stauffer and attend visiting hours on Sunday, June 11th from 2:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. at Schultz Funeral Home 722 8th Street, DeWitt, Iowa 52742. The family is having a private burial service at a later date.

Sherry had strong faith and love for our Lord Jesus! One of her favorite parables is that of the mustard seed, believing in quality over quantity. This helped her to choose to live out her last earthly days at the Clarissa C. Cook Hospice House, where she made her final journey home. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her “5 favorites”. Sherry was 74 years young.

Sherry lived her life for her family, friends, and community. She was a giver at heart. Her biggest JOYS are her grandbabies, giving her the best title of all time-GMA SHERRY! She was granted many awards through the years but her family was her prize reward; no matter how dysfunctional.

She enjoyed “junkin” and thinking outside the box to be creative. She was a seamstress who enjoyed giving her t-shirt quilts to those she cared the most about. She shared her love of cooking and baking every holiday season including a few made up ones just for a reason to gather with family and friends. Her absolute favorite was Christmas and when it snowed. The “First Snowfall” phone call/texts will definitely be missed.

Sherry loved to travel to see her grandbabies activities, to Wisconsin to spend time with family (her serenity place on the river), Door County, and recent adventures in Texas and Washington. Road trips were the best even when traveled 300 miles off course; she helped to just make the best of it.

She was a strong willed person who told it like she thought, whether you were ready to hear it or not. She was the best listener too, and sometimes for hours on end, which she may have confessed to putting the phone down a time or two with no recollection of the conversation.

Her dedication, devotion, passion, and persistence allowed her to be the founder of “Pink for the Cure”, to help make others aware of breast cancer. This is something she was humbly proud of.

Sherry is survived by her children Kris (Chuck) Michels, Michelle Ziesmer, Brian (Sonja) Klaas, Jeff (Connie Kagamen) Klaas, Alycia (Jake Larsen) Stauffer; her grandbabies Dylan (Elena) Michels, Dakota Michels, Caulin Klaas, Cyle (Melissa) Cox, Celsie Ziesmer, Mitchell Klaas, Elaina Klaas, Jack Larsen, Ruby Larsen, Hope Kuberski and Nathan and Logan Kuberski; and great-grandbaby Lucy Cox; siblings Buzz (Deb) Kittoe, Dan (Janice) Kittoe, Mike (Shyla Wolf) Kittoe, Lenny (Bev) Kittoe, Larry Kittoe, Patty (Tim) Post, Anna Kittoe; numerous nephews and nieces, and the best of friends known as the “FIVE FOSSILS”!

Family members she is now enjoying eternal life with are Bob & Betty Kittoe, Terry (DC) Stauffer, Betsy Kittoe, Stacey Kittoe, Brandon Ketchum, and David Post.
