Arianna Jean Shupert, age 31, lost her life as she succumbed to injuries sustained in a horrific auto accident, on the outskirts of Kansas City, Missouri. On Nov. 14, 2020, she lost her fight to overcome her injuries, with her fiance at her bedside holding her hand. Arianna was born on April 5, 1989 in Alpena, Michigan to Bill and Kendra Shupert.

Her young life was one filled with adventure and accomplishment. She had so many talents from a young age and was gifted with creative writing and the ability to draw, for which we have so many precious pieces treasured. She flourished in elementary school, throughout high school, and then onto college, making so many lifelong friends. In her short life, she touched so many lives and everyone who met her loved her dearly and can share a story that will make you laugh. She would say her greatest attribute was her sense of fashion, as she loved everything that was high quality and expensive, from face cream, shoes/boots, coats, purses, and most importantly dresses. She always loved to wear a dress. She was beyond beautiful both inside and out.

Among her greatest accomplishments, she earned a Doctorate Degree in Pharmacy from Ferris State University, and was proud of not only herself, but all her classmates such as the Girls of D12, and then the Jackson 5.

Her most recent endeavor was planning her wedding to Tyler Salamasick, to be united forever on May 28, 2021, planned for the Bissell Tree House at the John Ball Zoo, Grand Rapids. These two had a relationship that was a love that was meant to be forever. Tyler describes her as incredibly beautiful and intelligent, these attributes never got in the way, but only accentuated her uniqueness and funny side that made her perfect. Together they shared their life with their beloved dog OLIVER.

Surviving are her parents, Bill and Kendra Shupert and her younger sister Alyssa Sue. Her fiance Tyler Salamasick and his family. Her Grandmother Anna Mae LaRoche, and her grandparents William and Sally Shupert. She has many aunts and uncles, cousins, extended family, and so many dear friends. Arianna was preceded in death by her grandfather, Larry LaRoche.
