Kelly Jeanne Zuvers Obituary

MORENCI – Kelly Jeanne Zuvers, age 58, of Morenci, died Wednesday, May 8, 2024, at Fulton Manor in Wauseon, OH. Born August 9, 1965, in Morenci, she was the oldest child of Jack and Georgia (Ford) Zuvers. Born with Down Syndrome, Kelly was notably one of the first graduates with special needs to receive a diploma from Morenci Area Schools. She graduated in 1986, and was a lifelong Morenci resident.


During high school, Kelly began employment as a dishwasher at the Village Inn, where she worked several days a week for over 25 years. She was a faithful member of Medina Federated Church, and a lifetime member of the Hope Community Center in Adrian. A creature of habit, Kelly was regimented in her daily routines. She loved watching scary movies and was a fan of several television series including “Dukes of Hazard”, “The Waltons”, and “Little House on the Prairie”. She took pleasure in reading so much that she took a book nearly everywhere she went. She also enjoyed playing video games. Eating was perhaps one of her favorite activities, and she always enjoyed going out of town shopping, knowing the trip would reward her with a meal out. Kelly’s unique happy disposition and fun-loving personality touched the lives of many in her community, and she received just as much love as she gave to others. She will be sorely missed.


Surviving is her mother, Georgia Zuvers of Morenci; sister, Kristy (Mike) Shaffer of Morenci; brother, Scott (Natalie) Zuvers of Morenci; nieces and nephews, McKenna Shaffer (Dylan Leathers) of Odessa, TX, and Mason Shaffer, Josette Zuvers, Emily Zuvers, Tessa Zuvers, and Noah Zuvers all of Morenci; and many loving aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family.


She was preceded in death by her father, Jack, a nephew, Garrett Shaffer; and all of her maternal and paternal grandparents.


Cremation will take place. A memorial service to celebrate Kelly’s life will be held on Wednesday, May 15, 2024, at 11:00 a.m., at Eagle-Marry Funeral Home, Morenci, with Pastor Darren Lemmon officiating. The family will receive friends for a memorial visitation on Tuesday, May 14, from 2-4 and 6-8 p.m., as well as on Wednesday morning, from 10:00 a.m. until the service begins. Inurnment will follow at Oak Grove Cemetery, Morenci.


Those planning an expression of sympathy may consider memorial donations in honor of Kelly to benefit the Hope Community Center in Adrian or Medina Federated Church. Friends can share memories and words of comfort with the family online at www.eaglemarryfuneralhome.com


Arrangements have been entrusted to Eagle-Marry Funeral Home, Morenci.
