Until her death in 2008 at the age of 76, this was the home of Betty Lou Mordecai Shupe. Betty had 13 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren who enjoyed visiting Grandma and Grandma Shupe in this home. The couple even raised one of their grandchildren here. Betty enjoyed painting china plates, but she was apparently a historic preservationist who did not paint over the beautiful woodwork in the house. The kids must have had fun playing hide and seek with those front and rear staircases!
