Shirley Doern, born Dec. 18, 1921, died at home June 12, 2006 surrounded by her children Bob, Gary and Cathy.
Beloved wife of her late husband Robert. Kind, caring and thoughtful mother to Bobby of Cedarburg, Cathy Stone of Springfield, Ore. and Gary Doern and dear daughter-in-law Jean of Iowa City, Iowa, grandmother to Christopher (Kellie) and Jonathon, sister-in-law Jane Wolfgram.
Shirley’s gifts were being a mother, wife, dear friend to many and infamous bridge player, and taking care of others in need.
Her passion was her beloved companion animals, including Tuffy, Silas, Jo and her current two cats Lisa Jane and Simon. Her recent joy has been her beautiful garden and pond and waterfall.
No funeral or memorial services will be held per her request.
"If, when we have gone, they shall in memory recall our day upon earth and shall laugh, with overbrimming joy, that a dear one walked the earth bravely and lovingly once upon a time then indeed our memory shall be a blessing"
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Shirley Doern’s name can be given to Ozaukee Humane Society, 2073 County Trunk Highway W, Grafton, WI 53024. Mueller Funeral Home in Cedarburg is serving the family.
