Shirley was born Sept. 5, 1931, in South Haven, the daughter of the late Orlo and Frances Vanderboegh and had lived the majority of her life in Allegan.

She was preceded in death by her husband, George, who passed in 2012; and daughter-in-law, Ronda Robinson.

Private graveside services have taken place at Hudson Corners Cemetery, Allegan Township. A public memorial service will take place at a later date, once finalized details will be posted.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to the Wounded Warriors Foundation. Arrangements entrusted to the Gobles Chapel, D. L. Miller Funeral Home,
