CESSNA , SHIRLEY M.,

1934-2008, passed away October 22, 2008, after a long battle with cancer. Born in South Dakota, the family moved to Oregon where she grew up. She married her husband, Ken who was a career Air Force member. She had two sons, Curt in 1954 and Randy in 1958. Randy passed away in 1978. The family traveled the country to different Air Force bases. Shirley was a stay at home mom and frequently raised her children alone, due to her husband's long hours and out of country assignments. She was a loving mom and had the ability to make something good from sparse resources. As her children got older she began taking a myriad of jobs. She also became an avid bowler. She was quick to make a friend and had a lust for life. She became deeply religious and always had an optimistic attitude. She was thrilled to become a grandmother in 1989 and 1990. She loved her grandsons and was extremely proud of them. Shirley lived by herself from 1984 and developed many friendships. She bought property in Marana and lived there to the end. Shirley is survived by her son, Curt; grandsons, Kenny and Ryan. Visitation will be from 1000 a.m. to 1100 a.m., Tuesday, October 28, 2008, at ADAIR FUNERAL HOMES-AVALON CHAPEL, 8090 N. Northern Ave @ Magee. At 1100 a.m. a procession to Evergreen Cemetery will take place followed by a graveside service.
