LUPSHA, Cherry Jo, Resident of Williamsburg Landing in Williamsburg, VA, died on June 22, 2017.  Born February 20, 1929 she was the daughter of Glenn Turner and Irene Turner of Ringling, OK.  After graduation from Ringling High School, Mrs. Lupsha attended Oklahoma State University.  She was selected to be queen of a college sorority and met Charles Lupsha at her coronation. They were married in July of 1949 in Bennett Chapel on the campus of OSU. Mr. Lupsha’s career in sales and marketing resulted in numerous relocations throughout the country.  During one of these frequent transfers, the family spent months in a hotel while having a new home built only to be told to relocate the morning after moving in. Throughout these years Mrs. Lupsha was a devoted wife and mother, renowned for her warmth and hospitality.  She was active in Catholic parishes in every town where she lived.  She served two terms as President of the Diablo Valley Assistance League (CA), combining her indefatigable organizational skills with a passionate dedication to community service. Mr. and Mrs. Lupsha moved to Williamsburg in 2003.  She was preceded in death by her husband of 67 years.  She is survived by five sons, eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. A funeral Mass will be held on Thursday, June 29, 2017, 10:00 AM at St. Olaf’s Catholic Church in Norge, VA. Interment will take place on Friday, June 30, 2017 at Culpeper National Cemetery.
