Shupe, Elmer (4 JUL 1868 - 3 NOV 1935)

Elmer Shupe was born in Fond du Lac County, July 4, 1868, and passed away at his home on the west side of Loyal at about 5 P.M., Nov. 3, 1935, after a short illness caused by Bright’s disease. He had thus reached the age of 67 years, 3 months, and 29 days.

The funeral was held at the Loyal Methodist Church, Wednesday, at 2 P.M., with Rev. A. N. Chapman officiating, and was laid to rest in Pine Grove Cemetery.

When but a baby he went with his parents to live in Missouri, but home-sickness for Wisconsin brought the family back to Fond du Lac County. At the age of 12 he came with his patents to a farm in Beaver Township.

On March 27, 1893 he was married to Miss Mary Degan at Greenwood, Rev. Hendren, one of Clark County’s pioneer preachers performing the ceremony.

One son was born to this union, Frank Shupe, whose home is in Birnamwood, Wis.

After his marriage he continued to make his home on a farm in Beaver until about eleven years ago when he moved to the home he had built in the village.

Two sisters, Mrs. Fred Nelson, Loyal, and Mrs. Nels Waterman, Amery, survive Mr. Shupe.

Mr. Arthur Darton, Mr. Fred Degan, Mr. Herman Degan, Mr. Wm. Loppnow, Mr. Ed. Bertz, and Mr. Fred Cox acted as pall-bearers.

Mr. Shupe was a man of retiring nature, not a leader among men, but one who when enlisted in a cause stood firm and true.

The final tribute of praise, spoken by one who has known him from childhood will be echoed in the hearts of all his old friendsthose who knew him best. The short but meaningful tribute, one which will live in memories, was "He was a good man."
