Fishing 15

Alice Jane Shumaker

March 14, 1944 ~ April 5, 2022 (age 78)


Alice Jane Shumaker, 78, of Angola, Indiana, passed away on April 5, 2022, after a brave battle with breast cancer 5 years ago.  Our loving, wonderful, fun-loving sister was taken from us with pancreatic cancer way to soon.

 Alice was born in Steuben County to John and Pauline (Frey) Shumaker on March 14, 1944.  They preceded her in death.  She graduated from Salem Center High School in 1962.

 Alice was a master-fisherwomen and taught her nieces and nephews everything to know about fishing, from catching and cleaning them to cooking them.

 She is survived by her three sisters, Judy Bagwell of Duluth, Georgia, Melodee (Jack) Frye of Longwood, Florida and Diana Kitson of Angola, Indiana; her nieces and nephews, Kevin (Marvette) Bagwell, Mark (Connie) Bagwell, Melanie Bagwell, Rod (Kim) Frye, Jenny (Todd) Quillen and Adam (Mary) Kitson, 8 great-nieces and nephews and 2 great great-nieces and nephews.

 She spoiled every niece and nephew and they all loved her very much.  She lit up with all the great nieces and nephews and loved them all, including the great great ones.  She was a friend to so many, relatives, childhood friends and many co-workers.  She will be missed by all.

 There will be family graveside services at a later date, per her request.
