Sharon Kay Tunstill Schnee Obituary
Sharon Kay Tunstill Schnee, 67, passed away on Wednesday, Aug. 14, 2013, at her Broadmoor home in Colorado Springs, Colo., after a courageous battle with late detected, fourth-stage cancer. Service: A private memorial service will be held at Mountain View Mortuary in Colorado Springs. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Meals on Wheels via Silver Key Senior Services. Sharon was born in Fort Worth on March 1, 1946, in St. Joseph Hospital. She attended Bluebonnet Elementary, where she was active in Bluebirds, McLean Middle School, where she sang in school productions like "The Belle of Baghdad," graduated from Paschal High School in 1964, where she won honors in distributive education, and attended Texas Christian University, where she studied fine arts, including dance and voice. For many years, she was a volunteer for Meals on Wheels. Sharon was the granddaughter of pioneer Texas oil operator William A. Tunstill Sr. Sharon was preceded in death by her parents, William A. Tunstill Jr. and Kathryn Tunstill Latimer; and her beloved husband, Russell Schnee, with whom she found 20 years of happiness being a stylish Texas homemaker and gracious hostess. She moved to Colorado Springs, Colo., in 2011 to be close to surviving family members, including her stepparents, Arthur and Ann Latimer, of Florissant, Colo., and her brother, William A. Tunstill III of Colorado Springs.
