|About The Shumaker Ancestry
This has been a project that I have wanted to undertake for the longest time. I
started years ago, but got discouraged and gave up. Another brick wall I was running
into was not having ANY information on my father's side, beyond his parent
information. It was slow going to say the least.
With the help of a lot of kind strangers, a lot of questions to the family and even
more research, it's starting to come along nicely.
The Germany connection has been found! Now, I'm on a search to find another
connection...but more on that when it is done.
If you feel that I have information that would help you out, feel free to request an
invitation to check out the numerous branches of this tree. If you think you have
information that would help me, by all means, let me know!
IDELL VIVIAN SPINDLE DILL, our matriarch (April 17, 2015)
It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of my Gram, Idell Spindle Dill. She would
have been 97 years old on June 20. She lived a long, mostly healthy life and tried to be
independent until the very end. She was strong-willed & could be stubborn, but, I can honestly
say I thank her for being that way. She passed her strength on to my mother, who in turn passed
it on to me.
She was preceded in death by my Aunt Hope (Evelyn Shrewsbury) and my Uncle Billy (William
She is survived by my Aunt Joyce Hunter, my mother Janet Brown, and my Aunt Dale (Judith
She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, more than 20 great grandchildren, and at least 13
Visitation and the service will be held at Lakewood Park United Methodist Church (our family
I love and miss you already Gram; rest in peace...
IDELL DILL CELEBRATES HER 95th BIRTHDAY
A gathering of friends and family was held in honor of my Grandmother's 95th birthday. She was
really surprised since her birthday was yesterday! There were about 30 people in attendance,
with the 2 youngest being under the age of 2 years (great-great grandchildren), and Gram (of
course) being the oldest. There is a sequence of 5 generations of females that start with Gram
and run through my mother, Janet, my sister Kim, her daughter Jessica and her daughter
Serenity. Unfortunately, Serenity was with other relatives for the summer and could not attend.
Lunch was served and a good time was had by all.
Here's looking forward to #96!
