Obituary for Mary Showalter Cupp

Mary Showalter Cupp, of Port Republic, passed away Wednesday, October 31, 2018. Mrs. Cupp was born on February 16, 1945, and was preceded in death by her parents William Earl Showalter, Sr. and Elma Kingree Showalter; a sister, Ethel Moyers; her husband of 50 years, Gary D. (Danny) Cupp Sr. She is survived by 2 sons, Gary Jr. (Crystal) and Jerry. She is also survived by siblings, Paul Showalter (Wanda), William Showalter Jr (Barbara) and Sam Showalter, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Mary began her career in accounting with the historic Joseph Neys in Harrisonburg. She continued with positions at GE and Genicom until its closure. At that time she bravely went back to school at Blue Ridge Community College and acquired an Associate’s Degree which opened a door for her to continue and retire from James Madison University.

Along with being an astute business woman, Mary loved spending time with her family, traveling, gardening and canning the garden’s harvest. Mary also enjoyed family reunions and hearing from friends from school days and places of work. Virginia was her home and she never grew tired of rides, picnics and wild animal sightings on our beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway.
