Heinz Schupp

May 21, 1923 — November 3, 2021

Heinz Edward Schupp of Stover passed away Wednesday, November 3, 2021 at the age of 98. He was born May 21, 1923 near Bebra, Missouri, the oldest son of the late Ernest August William and Erna Doretta Rica Lena (Willmer) Schupp.

Heinz attended the Martin School District #29, Stover through the 8th grade. He helped farm on the family farm near the Goldfish Hatchery before being drafted into the U.S. Army as a replacement soldier. Heinz served from March 1, 1943 to October 21, 1945. He received his basic training at Camp Campbell, Kentucky. After several stateside Army posts he landed in Liverpool, England on June 30, 1944 and boarded a boat across the English Channel to Omaha Beach in France where he joined the 27th Armored Infantry Battalion, 9th Armored Division, Company. There they went on to St. Vith, the site of the Ludendorff Bridge and fought and won to keep the bridge as that was the last open across the Rhine River during the Battle of the Bulge. His troops were relieved in January of 1945 and they trekked across Germany to Czechoslovakia where they met up with Russian soldiers to liberate the Czech people from the Nazi armies. World War II ended and Heinz rode in a boxcar to the coast of France. He returned stateside to his life’s work, farming.

On April 9, 1949 he married Mabel Leona Casdorph at St. John’s Evangelical Church in Florence.

While still farming, over the years Heinz also worked at the Morgan County A.S.C.S, Stover Milling, and the Stover Hatchery. He also worked for Emma Creamery picking up milk.

He liked to attend auctions, cutting wood, and fishing. He loved his cows and visiting with friends. After Mabel passed away, Heinz liked to go to area nursing homes and visit with the residents. His biggest enjoyment in life came from spending time with his family.

Heinz was a faithful Christian, attended church at Trinity Lutheran Church at Pyrmont and was a member of Christ Lutheran Church in Stover for the past several years.
