Pasta, Leeota (Lee) Fay (Shenold Martin), 88, devoted wife, loving mother, grand, great grand-, and great-great grandmother peacefully slipped from this life April 10,2012 in Yukon, Oklahoma. She was born January 14, 1924 in Sunnyvale, California and graduated from Kingfisher High School, where she was twice j named Homecoming Queen. She started her banking career at People’s National Bank and was introduced through a mutual acquaintance to Bill Pasta of New York City. They became pen pals while he was in the Army and married in 1942. After his discharge, he went to work for the Rock Island railroad, which resulted in forty moves (including three to El Reno, OK) over the span of his career. It also allowed Lee to gain vast and valuable experience in the banking business. She retired as branch manager of the Valley View State Bank in Overland Park, KS. Lee was a faithful member of churches wherever they settled, no matter the length of time they were there. She taught Sunday school, was a member of the Altar Guild, and led Girl and Boy Scout activities. She loved to read, was an avid Bridge player, and taught the game she so loved. Her most important role was as a wife and mother, especially in support of her children’s endeavors. She was a talented seamstress, often able to copy a gown without benefit of a pattern, but just a picture found in a magazine or shop window. Preceded in death by daughters, Vicki (Gary) Irminger and Barbara (Jim) Davis and granddaughter, Kimberly Bennett. She is survived by Bill, her husband of more than sixty-nine years, son Jim (Jolene) Pasta of Hampshire, IL, daughter Janet (Danny) Miller of Derby, KS, ten grandchildren, fifteen grandchildren and five great great grandchildren.
