Rosalyn Ann Stuckey, 84, Sheridan, passed away Wednesday morning, June 24, 2020 at Riverview Health in Noblesville.

Born April 21, 1936 in Boone County, Indiana, she was the daughter of the late Frederick G. and Edna Lois (Bannon) Shoemaker.

She was a graduate of both Carmel High School and Ball State University. Growing up, Mrs. Stuckey was involved in 4-H. Her dedication to the activity earned her the privilege of being recognized as a 10-year member, an accomplishment that she was very proud of.

On Jan. 8, 1961 Mrs. Stuckey married the love of her life, Francis "Gene" Stuckey, and set off on a lifelong journey side by side with her best friend. For many decades, Mrs. Stuckey and Gene carefully tended to the orchards, lovingly cared for the vegetable plots and watched over the store at Stuckey's Farm Market, located near Sheridan on the Hamilton-Boone County line. It was hard work, but also a labor of love. Together they offered a much-needed and appreciated service to the community by providing fresh produce year after year. They also helped multiple generations create wonderful memories of visiting the farm and sharing adventures with their families.

Mrs. Stuckey's strength of faith and compassion for other people led her into mission work. She, along with Mr. Stuckey, loved to travel and to help where they were needed, completing many mission trips throughout the '80s and '90s. She also served on the Board of Directors for Christian Service International (CSI) for many years. Rosalyn attended Heartland Church.

Family was a very important part of Mrs. Stuckey's life; nearly every activity was a family affair. Whether it was working at the farm, going on mission trips, or just traveling to see the kids and grandkids, family was always the driving force.

Survivors include her two sons, Steven E. (Diana) Stuckey of Sheridan and Kent A. (Laura) Stuckey of Bucyrus, Ohio; six grandchildren, Ben (Meredith) Stuckey, Zach (Kelsey) Stuckey, Ethan (Hannah) Stuckey, all of Bucyrus, Ohio, Alicia Stuckey of Westfield, Kristie Stuckey of Fairfax, Iowa and Heather (Travis) Correll of Kokomo; one great-grandson, Hayden Correll; three great-granddaughters, Waylynn Stuckey, Mayla Stuckey and Ruby Stuckey; her sister-in-law, Eleanor Moffitt of Carmel; four nieces; and one nephew.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her brother, Dwight M. Shoemaker; sister-in-law, Sandra Shoemaker; and by her loving husband and partner through life, Gene Stuckey, on March 27, 2018.

Private family services are scheduled at Kercheval Funeral Home in Sheridan for Monday afternoon, June 29, 2020. Following the funeral, she will be laid to rest at Mts. Runn Cemetery in rural Boone County. Friends and family are invited to gather at the graveside for the committal service. Pastor Bill Salsbery will be officiating. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kercheval Funeral Home in Sheridan.

The family asks that memorial contributions be presented to either Heartland Ministries Church, 3611 S.R. 19, Sharpsville, Indiana 46068, or to Christian Services International (CSI), 840 Daniel Drive, Kokomo, Indiana 46901.
