Mrs. Nellie Josephine Sundermeyer, age 86, of New Bloomfield, Mo., passed away on Wednesday, September 30, 2020 at home, surrounded by her loving daughters.

Nellie was born on April 14, 1934 in Jefferson City, Mo., the daughter of Charles Shepard and Mary (Shackelford) Baldwin. She was married on March 19, 1951 in Arkansas to Paul Sundermeyer, who preceded her in death on January 11, 1997.

A lifelong resident of the Central Missouri area, Nellie attended Jefferson City Public Schools.

Right out of school, Nellie started her 38-year career at Von-Hoffman Press, where she worked in the Bindery department. After retirement, Nellie could not sit still. She worked for 5 years at Oak Tree Villa in Jefferson City in housekeeping.

Nellie stayed involved in her community through the American Legion. She also was a donor for many years at St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital.

Nellie was a go-getter. She enjoyed reading, traveling, playing cards, going shopping and sight-seeing, and she was an avid bowler. Nellie liked being outside, working in her yard, and gardening. Nellie loved Christmas time, always hosting big gatherings. She prepared the best fried chicken and potato salad. Most of all, Nellie’s family was her life. She was her children and grandchildren’s biggest cheerleader. She never missed a ball game or event that they had going on. Some of Nellie’s fondest memories with her family were at barbeques, holiday and family gatherings, pool parties, and various sporting events.

Everyone who met Nellie loved her. She will be most remembered for her free spirit, her caring nature, and her loving heart. Nellie will be greatly missed by all.

Survivors include: four daughters, Jeania Lowe (Mike) of New Bloomfield, Mo., Beverly Sundermeyer of Jefferson City, Mo., Carrie Dahl of Jefferson City, Mo., former son-in-law, Will Dahl, of Las Vegas, Nv., and Sandra Repper of Jefferson City, Mo; one brother, Charles Shepard (Dolores) of Jefferson City, Mo; seven grandchildren, Shane Lowe (Brittney) of Boonville, Mo., Staff Sergeant Michael Lowe Jr. of Fort Lewis, Wa., Becky Lowe of Illinois, Joshua Lehmen (Alicia) of Jefferson City, Mo., Captain Carrie Jo Lehmen of Arlington, Va., Lucas Dahl, of Las Vegas, Nv., William Dahl of Des Moines, Ia., Tanya Weinle (Rob) of Cincinnati, Oh.; and great-grandchildren, Harper, Channing, Scout Josephine (namesake), and Peyton Lowe, Jacqueline Anderson, Troy Goodwin, Theodore, Calvin, Gwendolyn, and Lincoln Lehmen, Ella, Reese, and Robert “Will” Weinle; and a great-great-grandson, Jaxson Anderson.

Nellie was preceded in death by: her loving husband of 45 years, Paul; her parents; six sisters, Marie Jenkins, Mildred Blumer, Geneva Clark, Laverne Kempker, Dorothy Carwile, and Shirley Shepard; and two infant children, Franklin Willard Sundermeyer, and Lisa Marie Sundermeyer.

Funeral services will be conducted at 12:00 PM Tuesday in the Freeman Chapel with Chaplain Bill Barkman officiating. Graveside services will follow at Hawthorn Memorial Gardens.
