Shirley was an employee at S.C. Johnson Wax for 37 years as an assembler. She was very proud of the products she helped make at the company. Shirley enjoyed playing bingo, going to county fairs, an occasional trip to a casino, watching her friend’s children play high school sports but most importantly, Shirley enjoyed caring for her pets in particularly, her cats. It was important to provide a home to her furry babies.

Per Shirley’s wishes, cremation has taken place and no services will be held and memorials to your favorite animal shelter would be appreciated. Leikness Funeral Home, Wautoma assisted with arrangements.

Special thanks to Dr. Kohlenberg and the staff at ThedaCare Green Lake and Dr. Pomplun and staff for the excellent care and compassion given to Shirley.
