Pastor Arthur W. Schupmann was born on July 3, 1931. He is the 13th of 15 children born to the Reverend and Mrs. Gustave G.G. Schupmann of Chesterfield, MO. Pastor Schupmann attended Trinity Lutheran Elementary School in Chesterfield, MO. He attended high school at Concordia in St. Paul, Minnesota, and Concordia in Ft. Wayne, Indiana. He attended college at St. John’s College, Winfield, KS. He began his seminary work with two years at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO, and finished his preparation for the holy ministry at the Orthodox Lutheran Seminary in Minneapolis on January 25, 1954.

Pastor Schupmann was ordained and installed by his father on February 3, 1954 at Trinity Lutheran Church, Chesterfield, MO. In July of 1954, Pastor Schupmann was called to serve two congregations in northern Minnesota, St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Ponsford, MN, and Mt. Olive Lutheran Church in Detroit Lakes, MN. In the spring of 1961 he was called to serve two congregations in MO, Trinity Lutheran Church in Ballwin, MO, and Peace Lutheran Church Owensville, MO. In 1966, Pastor Schupmann accepted a call to serve St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, WI, a church which he served for almost 30 years. In 1994, a semi-retirement call was extended to him by the congregation, Living Water Lutheran Church, in Hot Springs Village, AR.

Pastor Schupmann married Dorothy Insinger on September 6, 1953. They were blessed with nine children: Sharon (Michael) Horenberger, Deborah (the late Willie) Bradford, Vicki (Mark) Lindstrom, Nancy (Jeff) Villwock, Jean (Robert) Miller, David, Timothy, Jonathan (Deanna), and Angela (James) Poitz. Pastor and Mrs. Schupmann have eighteen grandchildren and fourteen great-grandchildren.  Also survived by many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Our dad was dedicated to serving the Lord throughout his life. He was an amazing preacher whose words touched many lives.

    Arthur W. Schupmann, by marriage to my sister Dorothy Insinger, was my brother-in-law. Their marriage brought nine beautiful children into the world…my nieces and nephews. Together they have had their own children, and thereafter grandchildren. I send my condolences to all of these descendants who are grieving the loss of their father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. My sympathy goes out to Pastor Schupmann’s nieces and nephews as well. Arthur spent his life bringing the gospel of our Lord Jesus to all around him. He did what he could to spend eternal life with our Lord. I pray that all of us by our lives, and faith in God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit, will be there too when we are called to judgment.

    It is difficult for me to put into words the emotions and memories onto a piece of paper that I felt when hearing this news. The Schupmann family has been an extension of my own family from childhood. I grew up next door and was immediately taken in and treated as a member of their family. Attending St. Peters grade school and church as one of the first Mexican families and never being treated differently than anyone else was due in large part to the loving and caring nature extended to my family from Rev. Schupmann and his family. I was watched over by his daughters as a child, became lifelong friends with his sons and always admired and respected his knowledge and honesty. Rev. Schupmann was truly an inspiration and patriarchal figure to many in our community. I often reminisce of his booming voice as he stood behind the lectern and sang ‘Praise God, from Whom All Blessings Flow’. I still sing it in his voice in my mind when I feel in need of strength to get through the troubling times I face. It is with a heavy heart that I extend my deepest condolences to the Schupmann family; yet take comfort in the memories of his life and inspiration. Never forget his voice as he sang “Praise God, from whom all blessings flow; Praise him, all Creatures here below; Praise him above ye heav’nly host; Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost”.

    With all my love,

    Daniel Villanueva
