Shirley worked at the Gering National Bank, J.C. Penney’s and was a farm wife for many years as well as a loving mom, grandma, and great grandma. Shirley met her sweetheart Bill in 1950 and they married in 1955 after Bill returned from the service. They were married 65 ½ years.

She was active in the Victory Hill Women’s Club and was a VFW auxiliary life member. She loved researching family genealogy, reading, listening to music, Dutch hop dances. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and grand puppy “Ozzie”.

May God be with us all until we meet again.
