Shirley A (Hupp) Vehrs

Shirley A. Vehrs, 87, passed away at her home near Marble Hill, Mo., on Thursday, August 10, 2017. Born on January 31, 1930, in Momence, Ill., she was the daughter of Harold and May Jensen Hupp. She married Wallace Edward Vehrs in 1950 in Momence. He preceded her in death in 1996.

During her early working years, she was self-employed as a beautician. She was a faithful member of the Marble Hill United Methodist Church, and for many years was a volunteer with the YMCA Trout Lodge Camp near Potosi, Mo. She volunteered and participated almost daily at the Marble Hill Senior Center. Her love for arts and crafts was shared with many, along with sewing of clothes, quilts, tapestries, and the bounty from her vegetable garden and flower garden.

She is survived by two sons: Roger (Chrissie) Vehrs and Allen (Dawn) Vehrs, both of Marble Hill; six grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

Her husband; a son, Mark; a brother, Floyd; and two sisters, Jean and Francis, preceded her in death.

A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 2, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at the Marble Hill United Methodist Church. Visitation will follow with refreshments in the church fellowship hall. Rev. Michael Hargraves will officiate. Hutchings Funeral Chapel is assisting the family.
