Shelva Jean (Kinsinger) Falkner age 78, passed away Monday, December 14th, 2020 from a short but courageous battle with cancer. She was born in Canton, Ohio to the late Lester (Grace) Kinsinger and Mary (John) St. John. She was a 1960 graduate of Perry High School where she was actively involved with her class reunions. She worked for Home Interiors for twenty-five plus years. Shelva enjoyed going to lunch and dinner with her multiple groups of friends. She loved playing Mahjong and cards with the ladies and her special friends, Sharon, Dick, and Ed. Most of all, she loved spending time with her large family, especially her nine grandchildren and one great-granddaughter. She was the most loving and caring person with the biggest heart to all who knew her.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 46 years, Gary; daughter, Laurie Wagner; brother, Dwain Kinsinger; and brother-in-law, Edward Falkner.
She is survived by her four children, Tracey (Sam) Psaris, Craig (Andrea) Falkner, Tiffany (Jeff) Vollmer and Brett (Melissa) Falkner; grandchildren, Cody (Taylor), Conner, Christian, Ansley, Kylie, Jake, Max, Owen, Eleana; great-granddaughter, Everly; sister-in-law, Terry Kinsinger; nieces, Tylene, Julie, Lisa; and nephew, Jeff (Sarah).
The family would also like to extend extreme thanks and gratitude to Sharon and Dick Forte and Ed Miller for all the support and care they gave our mother from her first diagnosis until her final day with us.
Due to the Covid pandemic and restrictions, there will not be any services at this time. We will have a Celebration of Life for this great lady when we can all gather safely.
