Shirley J. Schupbach
Our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother passed away Wednesday, December 6, 2017 at Linwood Residence Assisted Living Community, age 90. Shirley was born October 7, 1927 in Detroit, Michigan to the late Dewey and Martha (Waistock) Nelson. She married Leslie D. Schupbach in Bay City on May 29, 1947 and shared 65 wonderful years together before he predeceased her on April 12, 2013. Shirley retired from Prestolite after 42 years of service. Upon retirement she enjoyed baking; making the best “Grandma Cookies” ever. She loved watching wild life, camping, cross stitch and even enjoyed an occasional margarita with the girls on Mother’s Day. Shirley battled Parkinson Disease for the last 27 years, giving it a run for the money all along. In the later years she especially loved visiting with family and friends.
Surviving are two children, Leslie (Barbara) Schupbach and Linda (Richard) Bruske, six grandchildren: Amanda (Matt) Tuckey, David (Gale) Schupbach, Brian (Rachael) Schupbach, Aaron (Brandi) Bruske, Kurt (Jessy) Bruske and Jamie (Brian) Bain, great grandchildren: Elizabeth Becker and Vivian Tuckey, Katie, Nate, Ayden and Ruby Jane Schupbach, Clair and Eve Schupbach, Ronin and Veda Bruske, Carter and Buddy Bruske, and Ryleigh Bain.

The family would like to thank Linwood Residence staff for the excellent care given to Shirley and her family the past few years. A special thank you to Brenda, her hospice nurse for her compassionate care of mom in her final days as well.
