Menasha

Shirley M. Mason, age 77, mother of three and loving wife to the late George R. Mason passed away peacefully in the morning of December 1st.  Shirley was born on August 31, 1945 to the late Wilbur Warnke and Margaret (Cotter) Warnke.

Mason and together they shared 54 years.  Shirley truly loved her family, her flower beds, and occasional trips to the casinos.  She also loved her sweets and vacation trips with George.  Her love of cooking will not be forgotten.  She could make a meal out of just about anything.

She was employed by American Can as well as a seamstress. She also cared for young children along with sewing and ironing for others.  She definitely wasn’t afraid to work and take of her three children as well as her four grandchildren.

Anna) Mason, Kennedy Mason, and Parker Dains; her great-grandchild, Blakely Skeens; her brother, Ken (Edna) Warnke; her sister-in-law, Lil Warnke; as well as many other nieces, nephews, other extended relatives, and dear friends. 

Shirley is preceded in death by her husband, George; her parents, Wilbur and Margaret; her brother, Robert Warnke; and her sisters, Marlene Wendt and Pauline Gidlof.
