What was to be a surprise party for Shirley's 78 birthday on February 10 has turned in to a graduation celebration, as she has graduated from this life to that of her eternal reward with her Lord in Heaven. Shirley was born on February 10, 1930, in White Owl, SD to Homer A. and Ethel Lynn May Mann. She married William "Bill" Winchell, Sr. in 1970 in Sturgis, SD. She and her beloved husband moved to Amarillo in 2003 to be closer to their children. Before moving to Amarillo, she was known for having the Meryl Norman Cosmetic boutique in Clayton, NM. She was active for many years in the New Mexico State Cowbelles and while she lived in Logan she participated in the American Legion Auxiliary #77. Shirley was also a member of the Matapaha Chapter #98 of the Eastern Star in Sturgis, SD. Always active and on the go, Shirley loved to dance, travel and cater to her creative side with her many arts and crafts.
