A Memorial Visitation will be held Saturday, September 10th from 12-1PM at St. Jacobi Lutheran Church, 8605 W. Forest Home Ave.  A Funeral Service will follow at 1PM.


Shirley passed away, surrounded by her family, on Wednesday, September 7, 2022, age 84 years.  Loving wife of Ronald for 63 years.  Dear mother of Richard( Lisa), Laurie, Robert.  Proud grandma of Katelyn, Brandon, Steven, Andrew, Michael.  Proud great grandma of Bennett and Baylor.

Shirley’s faith was strong.    She was a very active member at St. Jacobi Lutheran Church, including being in the choir for many years, setting up Communion, and joining in bible studies.

She was a loving wife, mom, grandmother and great grandmother and showed her family true love by being selfless, always giving to others, and making countless sacrifices for her family.  She also showed her love by cooking for her family and sewing clothes when needed.

Shirley will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

    Dear Rick, Lisa, Katie and Brandon,

    My deepest sympathy for the loss of your mother, mother-n-law and grandma. I’ve heard many wonderful stories about her over the years and enjoyed all the endearing pictures you shared. You were truly blessed by all the special moments you had together. May God give you peace in this difficult time.

    Shirley was a good friend and neighbor. She was a special person who cared, listened and help people. Many stories were shared with lots of good memories to have and so many times of laughter and good advice. She helped me when I needed any sewing and alterations, when I need help with my children, sharing her cooking and baking delights, plus gave me the savory recipe for canning garlic dill pickles that we have used for over forty years.
    I will miss Shirley and all our conversations. She was one of a kind and there was never a dull moment when Shirley was around. I get a smile every time I think of her and remember the kindness and joy she gave to me. I was very lucky to have been her friend and have had her in my life for nearly fifty years. She sure did a good job while here on earth and I can’t wait to see what God has her doing in heaven.
    God bless her with lots of love and may she Rest In Peace.

    I have so many fond memories of my always smiling, congenial, loving, hard working and very kind cousin, Shirley.
    From the time we were little kids when we spent family vacations together, through the times of raising our families, to our later cross-country get-togethers, we’ve remained close. We had good times together – from early on vacations swimming all day, catching frogs and turtles, and picking watercress with her brother John in Wisconsin, to raising our families and, later on, having our occasional cross-country family meetings in Wisconsin, California and Nevada. I’m grateful for the day we were able to spend together last year in Las Vegas reminiscing all our good times. I will miss her very much. My heart goes out to the Witt family who have lost a loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother.
    Rest in Peace, Shirley.
