Terry Lee Dupler

Frank Shinn and Hester Daugherty Shinn joyously welcomed their daughter, Terry Lee into heaven on April 7, 2016. There to greet Terry were Peco, Uncle Bill, Slim, Phil Margaret and Darlene. Bobby, Ginny, Uncle Don, Aunt Mother and Lin were there too.

Terry left many sorrowful folks here including her husband of 47 years, Rick Dupler; “ The kids”, Jeff (Faith) Shinn and Mick (Jen) Dupler; brother, Larry (Trish) Shinn; and her beloved grandchildren, Sara, Zach, Evan, Bryce and Abby.

Relatives, friends and neighbors will grieve her passing. Nanny; Deb, her “bestest” friend; her craft buddy, Pam; Tim & Steph; and her friends at the IH, the Marina and too many more to mention.

Terry’s career, throughout her life, was widely diverse. She was a sales representative, a business owner, a travel agent and the “person behind the counter” at Buckeye Lake Marina. Dave Levacy became a respected friend and if you were nice to her she would give you one of Annie’s cookies.

Terry was a disc jockey for many years and was the best half of “Flashdance”. She was proud of working on “BLAST” with Tory.

She was a voracious reader and would sometimes read a novel from start to finish in one sitting.

All expectant moms that Terry knew would receive a “baby cake” at some point before the baby came.

A celebration of Terry’s life will be held at the Millersport Lions Clubhouse on April 17, 2016 from 2:00 PM till 4:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to: or mail checks made payable to Pelotonia to PO Box 475, Millersport, Ohio 43046. We will continue the fight to beat cancer once and for all.

A special thanks to Heartland of Fairfield Nursing Home and to Trish Shinn for all your time, effort and wonderful care.

Caring Cremation(r) has taken place by the Frank E. Smith Funeral Home and Crematory, Lancaster.
