Deepest sympathy of the death of Clarice. She and my mother, Margaret Green, volunteered together at Sacred Heart School.

Marie Green Bryant, Savannah, GA

She was a good friend to my mother Betty. She will be missed. Gretchen Alnutt

Gretchen Alnutt, Savannah, Ga

Aunt Neeny was truly one of the kindest people I ever knew. I’ll never forget the many letters, cards & notes full of uplifting scripture & precious little stickers in & on them that she sent during a really hard time in my life. They always seemed to arrive when I needed them the most. I will miss her kind spirit & funny sense of humor. She loved her family dearly. This world was a much better place because of her & she will be dearly missed.

Suzanna Crawford, Savannah, Ga

My Aunt Teeny laid solid gold bricks paving my path to know the Lord. She role modeled valuing her husband and loving her children in the joy of the Lord, and had a radiant purpose-filled life. She is who I forever wanted to be when I grew up. Never reaching these standards I sometimes feel I am not grown up yet... I rest knowing she is firmly in the arms of Christ and I look forward with peace and joy to the day I stand next to her again.

Donna Narron, Broomall, PA

Granny, I miss you so much my heart hurts. You were a wonderful grandmother - you always told me that you and I have a special bond. I know you’re with Granddaddy, Chris and Grandma Cone now and in such a better place and one day we will all be together again in heaven. God has a special angel back with him now. Words can’t express how my heart aches but I know you’re now at peace. I’ll forever be your “princess.” I love you, Granny....

Stacey Hodge Purvis, Savannah, GA

Eddie, so sorry to learn of your mother's passing. Your mother was a very sweet person & she will always be remembered. Prayers for you & all the family.

Carol Campbell Ritchhart (Pete), Collierville,, TN

Mr and Mrs Shuman were close friends of my parents and they were family friends also. I have fond memories of both of them. Our prayers are with the family during this difficult time.

Clarice Cone Shuman was born on May 8, 1927 in Savannah, Georgia.  She graduated from Commercial High School in 1946 and married Harry Shuman, Sr., the love of her life, on June 4, 1947. She was a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She was a spiritual woman with the kindest biggest heart you could ever imagine.  If the world had more people like Clarice, it would be a much kinder gentler place.  She is preceded in death by her husband of 65 years, Harry Edmund Shuman, Sr.; mother, Mildred Cone; father, Clarence Cone; brother, Donald Cone; and grandson, Christopher Clayton Shuman. 

She lovingly leaves behind her son, Harry Edmund Shuman, Jr. (Gail); devoted daughter, Janet Shuman Hodge; son-in-law, George Warren Hodge; sister, Margaret Oiler (Rusty); granddaughter, Stacey Hodge Purvis (Gene); grandson, James Warren Hodge (Jennifer); granddaughter Valerie Shuman McLaughlin (David); great-grandsons Peter Warren Hodge, Bryson McLaughlin and Brayden McLaughlin; great-granddaughter, Sophia Elizabeth Hodge; granddog Emma Leigh Shuman; and great-granddogs, Lucca Louise Purvis, Libby and Georgia Hodge.  She will forever be in our hearts.

The memorial service will be private.
