Diana Cupps funeral and more sad news

Worshipful Brother Dave Cupp’s wife, Diana Cupp, will start services with visitations Friday at Merkle Funeral Home.

Sadly, 24 hours after her untimely passing, her sister, Donna Lajiness passed away in her home.
Family says they dont think it was related to the passing of Diana, because she had been sick prior to the accident.

The full article is available in the Monroe Evening News. I read the Obituaries and they included the link to the sad passing away of Donna. Donna’s services will begin Friday at Rupp Funeral Home.

A day after Diana Cupp was killed in a car accident in front of Kroger, the family’s grief was compounded when her sister died.

#Donna Lajiness, the oldest of four, died in her home Wednesday, a little more than 24 hours after Mrs. Cupp was killed.

#Bubba Bezeau, who is married to another sister, Debi, said he does not believe the accident contributed directly to her death.

#She had been ill.

#“It’s rough but they’re fighting through it,” Mr. Bezeau said of the family. “Their mother (Mary Lajiness) is taking it pretty hard. She lost two daughters in 24 hours.”

#Mr. Bezeau said the funerals will be held on separate days. Ms. Cupp’s services begin with visitation Friday at Merkle Funeral Home and Ms. Lajiness’ services will be at Rupp Funeral Home in the coming days.

#“They’re doing as well as can be expected,” said Brian Merkle, owner of Merkle Funeral Home and a family friend. “They’re having a hard time right now.”

#Mr. Bezeau, coach of the Monroe High School baseball team, said he was impressed when he showed up for practice and saw the entire team standing in line waiting to greet him with hugs and handshakes.

#“That is one bunch of respectful kids,” he said. “It made me feel great.”

#Mr. Bezeau said he told the boys to be smart, don’t be afraid to ask for help if they ever need it and appreciate family and friends.

#“When they’re here, you gotta love ’em,” Mr. Bezeau said.

#Mr. Bezeau’s wife was at Kroger shopping and saw the accident that killed her sister. He said his wife is having a hard time with both losses so soon.

#“She just doesn’t know why it’s happening,” he said.

#As far as the teenager who is charged with causing the chase and accident, Mr. Bezeau said he hasn’t given him much thought.

#“I don’t have any feelings for him,” he said. “I just hope justice is true. He took a precious life away.”
