  • Notes 
    • Howard Elvis Deatherage, 90, of Jacksonville, died Friday evening, Nov. 20, 2009, at the VA Hospital in Danville. He was born Oct. 19, 1919, in Waverly, the son of Henry Elvis and Elizabeth A. Skeens Deatherage. He had been a patient at the hospital since July 2009. He first married Norah Pedro on Oct. 6, 1941 in Hamilton, Bermuda, and they later divorced. He then married Vivian Shield on May 18, 1962, in Haywood, Okla., and she preceded him in death Nov. 26, 2001, in McAlester, Okla.

      He is survived by his brother, Earl L. Deatherage of Waverly and Boone, Iowa; his son, Howard Joseph Deatherage of Weed, Calif.; two stepdaughters, Sue Bayless and Nancy Shield, both of Tulsa, Okla; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by two brothers, Lawrence and Lyndell Deatherage; and one sister, Marjorie (surviving husband, Robert D.) Opolka.

      Howard enlisted in the U.S. Navy on Aug. 6, 1941, in St. Louis, and continued his military career until he retired Feb. 10, 1961 with the rank of Chief Gunners Mate. Following his discharge, he was employed at the Savannah Munitions Depot in McAlester, Okla., as a civil service employee in the same capacity he held while serving in the military. He retired from his civil service position in 1975. He continued to reside in McAlester until June 2007 when he returned to Illinois as a resident of Jacksonville.

      Services were entrusted to Neece-Airsman-Hires Funeral Home of Waverly, Illinois.
