Obituary for Sharon Lee Shumaker

Sharon Lee Shumaker, 79, of Fostoria, passed away peacefully Sunday, May 12th, 2019. Sharon was born January 2nd, 1940 in Toledo, OH to Lewellyn and Mildred McAran. She married her longtime high school sweetheart, Alvin G. Shumaker on May 29th, 1958. He survives in Fostoria.

Sharon graduated college in Indiana and worked as a medical transcriptionist for Fostoria Community Hospital. Sharon was a free spirit who played by her own rules and liked to listen to loud rock & roll music, especially Bob Seger. She loved spending time with her family, relatives and friends at the family’s cottage on Posey Lake in Hudson, MI.

Sharon was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as “Grandma Shu”. Sharon had a vivacious personality and always made people around her laugh. She always told you the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. Sharon was strong, determined and a fiercely independent woman. She also enjoyed watching football and was a big Ohio State and Cleveland Browns fan and loved to bake for the game festivities and in general.

She will be sorely missed and survived by her sons: Kevin (Lori) Shumaker of Arcadia, Scott (Pamela Fletcher, fiancé) Shumaker of Fostoria and Steve (Kelly) Shumaker of Fostoria. Her loving grandchildren include Michael (Julia) Shumaker of Dayton, Kristy (J.D.) Persohn of Fostoria, Alisha Weis and Nicholas Shumaker also both of Fostoria. Sharon adored her six great-grandchildren: Lana, Sydney, Mya, Logan, Cora & Mia. She is also remembered in love by Jan, her neighbor; the Wernet Family which was her Posey Lake relative crew, Pam Shumaker and Jeremy Fetcher. She is also survived by her brother, Dennis (Barbara) McAran of Arizona.
