Shirley Ann Buchanan

Phoenix - Survived by children, Patricia (Jon) Garber, Diane Dodd, John Buchanan and Beth Buchanan; grandchildren, Joshua, Jordan, Jamie and Jody Garber, Jennifer, Sarah and Erin Dodd, Lance Buchanan, Cody Burt, Hunter Burt, Wade Buchanan, Courtney Buchanan and Audri Highfill; great-grandson, Jameson Heule; brother, Michael (Patricia) Camelia; sister, Susan Lee; former daughter in law Laura Bradford-Buchanan, and many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

Camelia; mother, Helen Leathe; brother, Paul Camelia; son-in-law, Randal J. Dodd; and brother-in-law, Charles A. Lee. Shirley moved to Phoenix in 1976 from Boston. Shirley had a keen mind and always challenged herself, had a strong work ethic, was resourceful, creative, fiercely loyal and endearingly stubborn. Early on, Shirley worked at various jobs such as waitressing, a phone answering service, the IRS, and a semiconductor company. In Arizona, she worked the switchboard at Del Webb's Townehouse, moving on to telecommunications, retiring from Honeywell. An avid reader, she always knew obscure facts. Shirley's varied interests included air shows, parades, drum corps competitions, zoos, museums, aquariums, concerts, night fishing, camping, animals and bingo. Shirley enjoyed life and all it had to offer. She will be truly missed by all who knew and loved her.
