My deepest condolences to the family of Shirley Retzlaff. To know her was to love her and she will be deeply missed by all whose live’s she touched. Hugs to you all. xoxox


I am so sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. I lived next door to her for 12 years and she was the best neighbor I ever could have asked for. She loved my kids and didn’t mind when they’d yell to her from our yard. “Shirley! Shirley!” my daughter would say and Shirley would just smile and visit with her. Marrah would run over and give her great big hugs all the time and loved to just say hi. She was always happy to see us and visit for a while.

I have missed her these last few months since they moved and will miss her even more now knowing I won’t run into her, even around town. She was a wonderful, sweet and caring person and I will always remember her and the smiles and laughter we shared. I’m sending many hugs to all her family who are grieving even more than I am at her passing.
