Shirley June (Thompson) Pruett

1936 ~ 2017

Shirley was born in Helena, Montana in 1936 and passed away on July 13, 2017 at 81 years young. Shirley and her family moved to Seattle in 1942. She was in the graduating class of 1954 from West Seattle High School, along with her sister, Barbara, where they were known as The Thompson Twins. Shirley met and married her high school sweetheart, Max Gordon Pruett, Jr. They built their first home in Normandy Park where they had five children. In 1966, Shirley and Max moved to Vashon Island to raise their family on a beautiful waterfront farm on the west side of the island.

In 1971 Max and Shirley opened Max Pruett Insurance Agency on Vashon. Shirley continued to work in the office, Monday through Friday, 9-5, up until April of this year. She was very proud of the fact that she was still working full-time at 81 years old and would share that with anyone she met.

Shirley is preceded in death by her husband, Max, and more recently this past February, her daughter, Lauri May Pruett. She is survived by her children, Mike Pruett (Karen), Gwenn Polik (Dean), Chris Pruett (Cheryl), and Evan Pruett (Sarah). She is also survived by her beloved sister, Barbara Jean Mjelde, and many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
