Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - OBITUARIES -

On Wed­nes­day Jan­uary 9, 2019, Dal­las Lynn (Shu­maker) Gen­ter of Down­ing­town, lov­ing wife, mother, daugh­ter, sis­ter and friend passed away at the age of 37 from metastatic breast can­cer while at home with her fam­ily.

Dal­las was born on Oc­to­ber 8, 1981 in West Ch­ester to Lau­rence and Pa­tri­cia (Sweet) Shu­maker. She was a 2000 grad­u­ate from Great Val­ley High School and went on to study Po­lit­i­cal Sci­ence at East­ern Univer­sity. On March 12, 2012 she mar­ried John R. Gen­ter and to­gether they have two chil­dren, John “Jack” Lau­rence, and Everly Sweet, all three of whom she loved with her whole heart.

She loved spend­ing time with her fam­ily ex­plor­ing, try­ing new restau­rants, camp­ing, read­ing sto­ries, singing songs, play­ing su­per­heroes and princesses and even as­sem­bling the oc­ca­sional Lego set. She was a trav­eler — a few of her fa­vorite des­ti­na­tions were Colorado, New Or­leans and Asheville.

Dal­las was gen­er­ous with her time, en­ergy and love and quick to make you feel like you were best friends. She vol­un­teered with City Year Philadel­phia after high school, sup­port­ing stu­dents in high-need ar­eas. Most re­cently she hosted Eat, Drink, Give where she raised thou­sands for Stand Up to Can­cer, an or­ga­ni­za­tion ded­i­cated to find­ing cures for can­cer.

Dal­las was a trea­sured mem­ber of Covenant Pres­by­te­rian Church in Malvern where she also worked as Church Ad­min­is­tra­tor for the past four years. In ad­di­tion to this, she took great pride in her work as a Se­nior Di­rec­tor and ad­vo­cate for health pro­tec­tive laws with Beau­ty­counter.

Dal­las is not only sur­vived by John, Jack and Everly, but by her par­ents, Larry and Patt Shu­maker; brothers Mike (Amy); Matt (Lisa); Cale (Amy) and Brooke (Laura) and many adored nieces and neph­ews. She is also sur­vived by her fa­ther-in-law, John M. Gen­ter (Coeli); moth­erin-law, Mary Beth Gen­ter; sis­ter-in-law Emily Wy­att (Gary) and count­less aunts, un­cles, cousins and friends.

A me­mo­rial ser­vice will be held on Wed­nes­day, Jan­uary 16th, 2019 at Covenant Pres­by­te­rian Church, 400 Lan­caster Av­enue in Malvern at noon, with vis­i­ta­tion prior start­ing at 10 a.m. In­ter­ment will be pri­vate.
