Shirley Ann (Yalick) Krohn, of Little River, S.C., passed away Thursday, June 20, 2013, at her home in Little River.

Born in Dallas on Jan. 20, 1945, she was a daughter of the late John and Ethel Dominick Yalick.

Shirley received her formal education through the Dallas Area School District, where she graduated in 1962. She was part of the last class at the "Old Dallas High School." Shirley continued her education in 1963 at the Wilkes-Barre Business College and graduated with a business degree.

In her early years, Shirley was involved with the family business, Yalick Brothers Farm. She and her sister, Sharon, worked the family farm and the farm stand.

Shirley was an avid craftswoman and excelled as a seamstress. She saw beauty and potential in everything and turned the mundane into stunning masterpieces. She will be remembered as a loving daughter, wife, sister and friend.

Shirley was preceded in death by her loving husband, Theodore "Ted" Lazarus Krohn. The bond and loved shared between Shirley and Ted was so special and strong that her passing is not one of sorrow but one of love and homecoming, because they are together once again. Also preceding in death are her Uncle and Auntie, Steve and Ann Yalick.

She leaves her sister, Sharon Astary, Dallas, to cherish her memory.

Shirley's family sends a special thank-you to Kelli Buffkin and her fiance Daniel, who were Shirley's companions and caretakers for the past year.
