Ella (Faye) Shrable

Services for Ella Faye Shrable will be at 1:00 p.m. Tuesday April 16, 2024 at Washington Creek Cemetery, 607 E. 550 Rd., Lawrence, KS. 66047.

Faye passed away on Wednesday, April 10, 2024 in Lawrence Kansas. She was born January 24, 1928 at her grandparents farm near Moody, Missouri, to Brook Claxton and Mable Davis Clay. She graduated from West Plains High School in West Plains, Missouri. She married Lehman Shrable in 1946. They moved to Lawrence in 1952 from Arkansas. They built a life here together but Arkansas was always, “down home,” and they returned there often to visit family. Lehman and Faye were married for 55 years until he passed away in 2001. Faye worked for Montgomery Ward in Lawrence for 29 years, until their doors closed. She retired and spent her remaining years as a homemaker in rural Douglas County.

She was known for her pies, cobblers, canning and homemade jelly. Her famous fudge was highly sought after at Christmas. She enjoyed reading, hand quilting, antiquing and thrift store shopping. Her greatest attribute was how deeply she loved her family and the Lord.

Survivors include two daughters, Carolyn Suit of Lawrence, and Cheryl (Randy) Flory of rural Douglas County. Six grandchildren, Joan Suit Hahn (Paul), Amy Suit Schell (Larry), Stephanie Flory Lang (Brian), Aaron Flory (Marci), Nathan Suit, and Andy Flory (Faith),. Thirteen great-grandchildren, and one great-great grandson.

The family wishes to thank Faye’s dear friend and neighbor Linda Haar who helped our Mom and Nana remain in her own home, which was her greatest desire. Friends may call from 3:00 to 8:00 p.m. Sunday, April 14, 2024 at Rumsey-Yost Funeral Home. There will be no family visitation.

From Linda Haar...

Faye & I shared a very special friendship that I will always treasure. When I moved next door to her twelve years ago, we spent time together almost every day. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the interesting stories of her life. Faye was an amazing woman who we can all learn from her strength and kindness. I will miss her dearly. Sending love and prayers to her family.

Some of my beat memories are listening to my Grandmother and Faye (her 1st cousin, but raised like sisters) laugh about getting in trouble by their Grandmother. People would come to visit but if those 2 were playing Yahoo, they wouldn’t stop the game. Both Faye and Lehman were angels on Earth and I’m a better person for knowing them.

From Brian Wahlen...

I have the warmest memories of Aunt Faye and Uncle Lehman’s house growing up. They were so welcoming and made you feel right at home with them. It was always a highlight of my year getting to stay with them and spend time with cousins growing up and I’m so thankful for her hospitality to make those memories possible(and the most absolutely amazing Cinnamon Rolls!) I’m praying today for her family that they will experience comfort in their grief and perhaps joy in knowing she has slipped the band’s of time and entered the eternal embrace of God who demonstrated his inexhaustible love upon the cross and now awaits the glory of resurrection.

From Mary (Meier)LeGer...

Cheryl & family, I’m so sorry to hear of your mother’s passing. She lived a long & pleasant life. Our thoughts & prayers are with you.
