DaVonna Belle (Klebsch) Sheridan
DaVonna Belle (Klebsch) Sheridan, 86, formerly of Redfield, SD died peacefully on April 16, 2023, at Pioneer Memorial Nursing Home in Viborg, SD. DaVonna, known to her family as D.B., was born on July 26, 1936, in Redfield, SD. She was the youngest daughter of Edward “Mike” and Sylvia Klebsch. She attended rural school and graduated from Redfield High School in 1954. She enlisted in the Women’s Army Corp on August 9, 1954. She served her 2 years working for the Army Veterinary Clinic at Ft. Monmouth, N.J. and was honorably discharged in 1956.
On June 8, 1957, she wed Laurence Sheridan at the Congregational Church Parsonage – this wedding united two pioneer families. They lived in Redfield, where both of their children were born, moving to Sioux Falls in 1963. She attended Nettleton Clerical School. She was employed by Sioux Valley Hospital, Augustana College and Good Sam Nursing Home in Sioux Falls and again in Canton where she and Laurence lived many good years near Newton Hills Park. They eventually returned to Sioux Falls.
DaVonna loved gardening and sharing her produce with neighbors and family. She adored her granddaughters and spent many hours with them doing projects or just exploring outside. Her family history was her passion and she loved to reminisce about her childhood on the farm. She was so proud that the multi-generational Klebsch farm was still in the family.
Grateful for having shared her life are her children: Bart (Carrie) Sheridan and Cindy (Mike) Delvo; grandchildren: Lizbeth (Alan) Hochhalter, all of Sioux Falls, SD, and Haley (Shaun) Davis and great-grandson Crue Davis of Harrisburg, SD; and a brother: Paul Klebsch of Redfield, SD. DaVonna was preceded in death by her parents, her husband: Laurence Sheridan; brother: Bill Klebsch: sisters: Sharon Topel, and Joy Mutschelknaus.
Graveside burial will take place June 14, 2023 at the Ashton, SD Cemetery. The family would like to extend a thank you to the staff of Pioneer Memorial Nursing Home in Viborg for their extreme kindness and patience.
