God saw Shirley was getting tired, so He put His arms around her and whispered "Come to Me." Shirley was called home by her Savior on November 24, 2012 at Brewster Village with her family at her side. Shirley was born December 14, 1931 in Appleton, the daughter of the late Frank and Rose (Miesler) Krause and was a member of Faith Lutheran Church of Appleton. Shirley married Cornelius (Neil) F. Still on April 14, 1951 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Appleton enjoying 61 years together. Shirley was a devoted wife, loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother and was very proud of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Shirley was the calming voice in the family. Shirley was there for anyone who had a problem and needed someone to talk to. Shirley enjoyed traveling with her husband throughout his military and Postal careers. Shirley had worked at the Shack prior to her marriage. Before getting sick Shirley enjoyed bowling, yard work and decorating.
Shirley is survived by her husband Neil and one daughter and son in law Diane Rose and Gregory Weiss of Appleton; son in law Allen (Wendy) Lembcke, Neenah; seven grandchildren; three great-granddaughters, and two great-grandsons; two sisters in law: Shirley A. Still, Lois Krause, all of Appleton. She is further survived by many nieces and nephews.

Honey - thank you for being a great partner in life and mother. Your laughter and thoughtfulness will be missed as you will.
