She was born March 28, 1931, in Hannibal, Mo., the daughter of Lester A. and Jewell M. (Johnson) Hayes. On June 11, 1950, she married Russell W. Renner in Hannibal. He preceded her in death Oct. 11, 1999.
Shirley was a homemaker and a devoted mother and grandmother. Her memberships included Asbury United Methodist Church of Bettendorf and Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
She was an avid bowler for many years and filled her spare time doing volunteer work at Bettendorf Healthcare Center, Good Samaritan Nursing Center and Ridgecrest Retirement Village. She loved to attend the auctions at Scotty's Auction, was fond of antiques and enjoyed her regular morning visits to Ross' for breakfast. Shirley's family was by far the most important part of her life. In earlier years, she was a former Campfire Girl leader and was a faithful fan of her grandson's swimming events.
Feeding the birds and squirrels and the companionship of her beloved dog, "Missy," gave her much pleasure for many years. She will be missed dearly by those who knew and loved her.
Those left to honor her memory include her daughter, Lori L. Renner, of Bettendorf; her grandson, Ian M. Renner, of Bettendorf; and many, many special friends.
