(From IH) It is with sadness that Gamma Phi Beta shares the loss of Marjory “Marjy” Mills Shupert (Colorado State, 1954). Marjy passed away on January 8, 2019.
Marjy served as Gamma Phi Beta’s executive director from 1982 to 1998. During that time Gamma Phi Beta’s International Headquarters was built, and Marjy served an integral role in the completion and management of the project. Marjy was also responsible for bringing Gamma Phi Beta’s database management in house and keeping up with trends and advancements in technology in the 1990s. An organizational guru, Marjy placed a high priority on creating systems and processes for International Headquarters and maintaining the Sorority’s archives.
After her tenure as executive director, Marjy served on the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation Board of Trustees. She was also a recipient of Gamma Phi Beta’s Service Roll and Loyalty Award and served as an extension volunteer for the Sorority. She was a member of the Denver Alumnae Chapter and received her 50-year pin in 2004. Marjy was a founding member of the Foundation’s 1874 Society.
Marjy will be remembered as a kind and thoughtful leader who led by example with humor and grace. She was a proud grandmother and a dear friend to many.
Information on services is not yet available. If you would like to honor Marjy, gifts can be made in her name to the Gamma Phi Beta Foundation.
