Her family moved to Orlando from Ottawa in 1923. She is survived by her devoted husband of 68 years, G. Albert Shepp of Orlando.

She was devoted to her husband, assisting him in his duties with the Knights of Columbus throughout Florida. They enjoyed many wonderful trips to various countries after Al's retirement and treasured the time they spent together. Theirs was a true love story.
