God looked around his garden and he found an empty place.  He looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face.  He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest. Gods Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.  He knew that you were suffering. He knew you were in pain, he knew that you would never get well on earth again.  He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb, so he closed your weary eyelids and whispered, “Peace be thine.”  It broke our hearts to lose you but you’d didn’t go alone for part of us went with you the day God called you home.

Shirley is survived by her children, Jim Guenther, Renee Earls, Lanny Karpinski, Denise Chapman; grandchildren, Jennifer Eliasson, Rachel Guenther, Raliegh Guenther, Rebekah Steed, Kaeli Karpinski, Alexis Karpinski, Josiah Sherewood, Rachel Sherewood and Elisha Sherewood.
