Sara (Davies) Hupp passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on 28 December 2021 after a brief illness.
She was born in Jewel, Colo. to Edward and Emily Davies on October 13, 1924, and was the eldest of three daughters. She married Horace “Jim” Hupp on March 6, 1942, and had one daughter, Linda.
During WW II when her husband was serving in the Army Air Corp in the Pacific, Sara was in Pecos, Texas making airplanes. After the war, they moved to Canon City, Colo. before moving to Alamosa, Colo., where they owned a Farmers Insurance agency and later owned a Dairy Queen in Loveland, Colo.
They spent many winters in Guaymas, Mexico, where Sara became a productive painter, mostly of the beautiful scenery of the area and of Colorado; and in spite of having had polio as a child, she played a good game of golf. They later spent winters in Florence, Ariz. prior to moving to Stevens Point to be closer to their family.
She was pre-deceased by her parents, her husband, Jim, her sister, Jackie Hartless, brothers-in-law Howard Stewart and Palmer Hartless, and her grandson, Rodney Nash. She is survived by her daughter, Linda Nash, her son in law, Denny Nash; her granddaughter, Denise Nash; her great-grandchildren, Serena Hayes and husband Dave, Ben Landowski (Crystal Rowland) and Tara Landowski (Scott Kizewski); her great-great-grandson, Oscar Hayes, all in Stevens Point; her sister, Roonie Stewart of Indiana; and many nieces and nephews.
Sara lived a full life; and at 97 years of age, she continued to enrich it with her iPhone and iPad through emails, texting, FaceTiming family, Google searches, and completing jigsaw puzzles, and playing cards with her friends at The Lodge at Whispering Pines.
The family would like to thank the kind and dedicated staff at the Lodge at Whispering Pines as well as Compassus Hospice. A memorial gathering will be held in the spring.
In lieu of flowers, the family wishes memorial contributions to be made to the Portage County Humane Society.
