Obituary

Mary Nevoline Shupe, 91 of Parker, Colorado formerly of Gallipolis, Ohio passed away December 15, 2021 at The Suites of Parker. She was born March 20, 1930 on the family farm in the Rodney, Ohio community. She was the youngest daughter of the late Calvin and Elberta Jane (Spencer) Jarvis. She attended Bidwell High School. 

Mary met Clarence Shupe, who served in the U.S. Navy during WWII, upon his return home to Bidwell, Ohio.  Mary was employed at G.C. Murphy as a salesclerk while living in Gallipolis. She and Clarence were former members of the Gallipolis First Church of the Nazarene for forty years. During that time Mary volunteered her services in Sunday School, Vacation Bible School, Caravans (a youth scouting program) and made various other contributions. In 1985, Mary and Clarence moved to Denver, Colorado to be closer to their son. She was employed by Ross Retail and also worked at Englewood Christian School as a teacher's aide. Mary and her late husband were members of Denver First Church of the Nazarene.

Mary's main purpose, joy and pleasure was first serving Christ and then being a loving wife and a devoted mother and homemaker. Many people were drawn to her sweet smile, her kindness and ability to simply listen.

Mary is survived by her two children, Larry Shupe of Parker, Colorado and Linda Davis of Bourbonnais, Illinois. She is survived also by a sister-in-law, Mrs. Marjorie (Howell) Jarvis. In addition there are three grandchildren: Todd Shupe of Parker, Colorado, Brigette Staley (Andrew) of Meridian, Idaho and Jessica Kura (David) of Canton, Georgia. She is also survived by her seven great grandchildren: Austin Printz, Brandon Shupe, Ryan Shupe, Kaitlyn Shupe, Thomas Staley, Hannah Staley and Gabrielle Kura. 

She is preceded in death by her parents, Calvin and Elberta Jane Jarvis; her husband, Clarence Shupe; three brothers, Maxie Jarvis, Milford Jarvis, Howell Jarvis and three sisters, Goldie (Jarvis) Swisher,  Permelia (Jarvis) Offutt and Genevieve (Jarvis) Brown.
