Ann Schrage, 90, of Allison, Iowa, passed away on Friday, June 29, 2018, at the Rehabilitation Center of Allison. She was born on December 7, 1927, at the Franklin County Hospital, the daughter of Dr. Ralph and Lucille (Riggs) McWhirter.

Ann was educated in Allison and graduated class of 1945. She furthered her education at Gates Business College in Waterloo from 1945-1947 and received her Stenographer's Degree.

Ann was united in marriage to Lester Schrage on February 19, 1950, at the Associate Church, now known as the Allison Congregational Church. To this union, four boys were born; Jay, Tim, Scott and John.

From 1947 to 1951, she worked as an office assistant for Butler County Farm Bureau. Ann was a farmwife, working beside her husband Lester, while raising their boys. On the farm, she and Lester raised livestock and all crops; she also gardened and canned. Ann was the Lutheran church secretary for twenty-seven years.

She was a member of St. James Lutheran Church in Allison, where she was involved with WELCA, sewing groups and the altar guild. Ann was on the Butler County Farm Bureau Women's Committee, where she held a number of offices, the Butler County Cancer Society, Allison Garden Buddies and Trees Forever Committee.

Ann enjoyed gardening, knitting, flowers, square dancing and bus trips with Lester. She volunteered many hours with Meals on Wheels.

Ann is survived by her son Jay (Sue) Schrage of Allison, and their daughter Andrea Schrage, son Tim (Felicia) Schrage of Allison, and their children Travis Schrage, Callie Pedersen, and Chase Schrage, son Scott (Kim) Schrage of Allison, and their children Erica Wessels and Jared Schrage, son John (Jodi) Schrage of Urbandale, and their son Cole Schrage, fourteen great-grandchildren and several nieces, nephews and extended relatives.

She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Lester, and brothers John and Thomas "TR" McWhirter.

John, Jay, Tim & Scott, my deepest sympathy at your Mom’s passing. Ann was a very special person who loved her boys to no end!! After reading Ann’s obituary, I am convinced -- I always thought of Ann as the ‘energizer bunny’ - a tiny person with lots of spunk and energy who made
‘things’ happen!! Ann always spoke highly of her ‘daughter-in-laws’ ... the daughters she now had in her life. The love Ann had for her family and how dearly her family loved their Mom is heartwarming. I am proud to share a grandson with this wonderful lady.
R. I. P. Ann, you lived a good life full of love.

My sympathy to the family. I enjoyed visiting with Ann in Garden Club and when delivering meals. She was a very special lady!
