Sheree was born August 30, 1963, in Hastings, NE to Kenneth “Kenny” and Marilyn
(Peterson) Drew, the youngest of two sons and two daughters. She grew up outside of
Inland, NE, and attended grade school there. She graduated high school from Trumbull in
1981. She attended Mary Lanning Nursing School and graduated in 1984. She later got
her Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing degree from Creighton University and was very
proud of that.
Sheree married her high school sweetheart, Daniel Ott on May 24, 1981, a couple weeks
after she graduated high school to share a wedding anniversary with her parents and her
sister-in-law and brother-in-law. Dan and Sheree were Godparents to multiple children.
They were blessed with a daughter, Anastasia Marie, and a son, Drew Daniel. Sheree’s
kids were her world and she was very proud of them and often told them she loved them
more than they knew. She never missed her kids’ activities throughout high school and
college and she will always be their #1 fan. Go Hawks! She worked at Mary Lanning
Memorial Hospital on a variety of floors, but mostly in Outpatient Surgery for 29 years
with many of her closest friends. She was loved by every nurse that ever had the privilege
of working with her and she was her own nurse until the very end. She then worked at the
Hastings Surgical Center for a few years until she requested to work as an as-needed
employee so she could be full-time Gramo. She was her kid’s #1 fan, but her grandkids,
Hayden Elizabeth, Kate Kristine, and Henrik James, were her real favorites. She ran her
own “Gramo Daycare” for four years and it was her favorite job of all. She will live on in
their hearts forever.
Everything she did, she did with love; from picking out a birthday card for one of her
nephews or nieces to making meals for her family and friends to giving the best advice
she did with absolute preciseness. She loved to go on walks with her daughter and dogs,
go out to eat with friends, attend concerts, watch Game Show Network, Big Ten
Network, or any activity where the whole family was together and she could take care of
them. She was involved in many groups and activities throughout her lifetime including
Girl Scouts, teaching CCD, St. Joseph’s Altar Society, Legion of Mary, Iowa Ladies
Football Academy, and the Loving Life Coalition of Hamilton County. She was an avid
blood donor and encouraged others to be donors as well. #shereesblOTT.
Sheree was baptized as an infant and was confirmed a Catholic when she was 16. She
prayed the rosary often, participated in all the sacraments, and was able to receive the
Eucharist multiple times in the days leading up to her passing.
Through it all, she never lost her mothering ways and sassy rhetoric. She was treasured as
a wife, mom, Gramo, Godmother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend and is already missed
Sheree was preceded in death by her dad; one infant brother; and one child born into
