Shirley was a dedicated Schnucks deli manager for over 30 years. In her spare time, she enjoyed cooking and baking for her family and friends. Her children and grandchildren were more than happy to devour her delicious recipes. When her children were in school, she found time to be a room mother and was involved in PTA. She loved reading and always had books close by. She also loved playing cards, especially with her grandchildren and was always up for a game of online canasta with her sister Ruth. Her favorite card game was “Shirley wins!”
Most of all she loved her family. She cherished us all and we cherished her. Her cheerful attitude and bright smile will be fondly remembered by all who knew her. She will be dearly missed and will live on forever in our hearts.
Preceded in death by her loving parents, Silverius and Lena Laurentius, her brother Lester Laurentius, and great-grandson Clayton Cantu.
Services: A private funeral service will be held Saturday, May 29 at Saint Maurus Catholic Cemetery in Biehle, Missouri. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the American Cancer Society or American Heart Association.
