Dolores J. Shuff, 89, of Le Mars, Iowa passed away on Monday, April 20, 2020 at the Good Samaritan Society in Le Mars. Due to the current public health mandate, a private family service will be held at a later date conducted by Rev. Dr. Okitakoyi Michel Lundula of The United Methodist Church of Le Mars.

Dolores Jean Shuff was born on June 19, 1930, in Hawarden, Iowa, the daughter of Howard and Geraldine (Godferson) Janvrin. She was raised in Hawarden and graduated from Hawarden High School in 1949. Following graduation, Dolores worked at a local dress shop.

On January 14, 1951, Dolores and Roger Shuff were united in marriage at Hawarden. They lived in Hawarden until moving to Le Mars, Iowa in 1969. Together they purchased a service station. Dolores managed the bookkeeping for Shuff’s Apco. They sold the station in 1988 and Dolores took a position at Westmar College as a cook. She loved cooking and remained there until her retirement.

Dolores was an active member of the United Methodist Church of Le Mars. She was also a member of the Floyd Valley Hospital Auxiliary and embroidered numerous dish towels to sell for fund raising. Together she and Roger made crafts and gardened. Dolores cared for the flower gardens and canned the vegetables Roger grew. She also found time for league bowling. Dolores was the face behind the camera and she compiled numerous photo albums. Her favorite time was spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She will be lovingly remembered by her children, Randy Shuff and his wife, Sandi and their children, Kristen (Jake Kohntopp) Shuff of Jerome, ID, and Jed (Courtney) Shuff of Chubbuck, ID; a son, Ron Shuff and his wife, Lynette of Le Mars, IA and their children, Chad (Tammy) Shuff of Omaha, NE and Camie (Matt) Blundell of Ormskirk, England; great-grandchildren, Logan, Landon and Leighton Shuff of Omaha, NE and Amber and Ruby Blundell of Ormskirk, England; a daughter, Debra Hughes and her children, Travis (Bailey Abraham) Hughes, Jessica (Drew Griffith) Hughes and Kenna Ruhland all of Le Mars, IA; great-grandchildren, Hayden and Mason Sitzmann of Le Mars, IA, Bryse Hughes and Everlee Cole of Akron, IA; sisters, Wanda (Jerry) McManaman of Lincoln, NE and LaVonne Corral of Williamsburg, IA; and a brother, Ken Janvrin of Penora, IA.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Roger on December 31, 2011; and a sister, Betty (Ken) Daugherty.
