In Loving Memory:
Earl Louis Grupe,93, a longtime resident of Xenia, IL entered into eternal rest on August 4, 2022.
Earl was born on March 8,1929 in St. Louis Mo. to the late Albert Grupe and Eva (Boudinot) Grupe. In addition to his parents, Earl was preceded in death by his step-father Cecil Cozart, one son Brian Grupe, a grandson Mathew Fussell, and ex-wife Mary Ann (Horton) Grupe.

Earl worked and retired from Granite City Steel with over 30years of service.
Earl loved gardening and tending his little farm where he would spend hours out in the fields, even at age 92. He also loved doing puzzles, some of which were breathtaking.
Although Earl is no longer with us, we will miss him dearly and he will forever live in our hearts.
