Obituary

Christine K. Shumway (nee Kesling), 88, passed away peacefully on September 19, 2019 at Legacies Assisted Living in Caledonia after a brief illness. Christine was born May 8, 1931 in Elkins, WV, the only child of Harley and Flossie (Hedrick) Kesling. She graduated from Davis & Elkins College in Elkins, WV, where she met her future husband, Douglas K. Shumway. They married a year after graduating, and Christine's career as a teacher helped get them through Doug's medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. After Douglas's graduation and completion of medical residency in Columbus, OH, they moved with their newborn daughter to Middleville, MI, where Doug established his medical practice. Christine devoted herself to her family. She was also actively involved in the Middleville United Methodist Church in their choir and women's group. She was a gifted soprano and often shared her beautiful voice in church and for many wedding ceremonies. Chris enjoyed painting and created many pieces of art. She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother and friend. She and Douglas celebrated 65 years of marriage on August 2, 2018. She was still grieving his death only seven short months ago, and no doubt her heart is overwhelmed with joy to be reunited with him now. Christine is survived by her children; Julie (Christopher) Walters, Lee (Lydia) Shumway, and Stacy (Frank) Scutch as well as her grandchildren; Keith Fuleki, DO, Ryan and Hannah Walters, Scott Shumway, and Abby and Kristen Scutch. Christine's family will receive friends Tuesday, September 24, from 5 - 8 p.m. at the Beeler-Gores Funeral Home, 914 W. Main Street, Middleville, MI 49333, and Wednesday, September 25th at 10 a.m. at the Middleville United Methodist Church, 111 Church Street, Middleville, MI 49333, where her funeral will be conducted at 11 a.m., Pastor Tony Shumaker officiating. Burial will take place at Mount Hope Cemetery in Middleville. Memorial contributions can be made to the Middleville United Methodist Church and to the Charcot-Marie-Tooth Association (www.cmtausa.org) for research for a rare muscular dystrophy from which Christine was afflicted. The family would like to thank the staff of Legacies Assisted Living, Faith Hospice, and all of her special caregivers for their compassionate care.
