Born in New Freedom, she was the daughter of the late John E. and Frances Stump Schuppert. Mary’s husband of 16 years, Russell E. Child died in 1973.

Mary loved to cook and share great times with her grandchildren and nieces and nephews (and their kids), who affectionately called her MeMa and Aunt Mae, respectively. Throughout her life, Schup remained best of friends with her nursing school classmates.

Aunt Mary was a funny and “cool” aunt.  She had open mind and heart about everything.  She perceived everything lightly.  I know she lived a very good life and was loved by all of us.  Aunt Mary loved visitors and loved to be teased.  I am going to miss her very much. 
Love, 
Karen
