Shirley Ekelund

Phoenix - Shirley, 94, passed away on December 15, 2018. Shirley was born in Superior, Wisconsin. She graduated from Superior High School where she met, and later married, the love of her life, Irving Ekelund who predeceased her. They moved to Phoenix in 1950. Shirley was an outstanding mother. She was on the PTA, a home-room mother, and blue bird leader. Her kids, grandkids and great-grandkids were her life. She would always lend a hand to those in need, and you could not walk into her house without being fed. She is survived by her sons, Tom Ekelund and Tim Ekelund and daughter Tammy Aragaki, grandchildren Tim Ekelund Jr., Brie Aragaki, and Adam (Kai) Aragaki and 2 great grandchildren. Services will be held January 31 at 2 pm at Mountain View Presbyterian Church, 8050 East Mountain View Road, Scottsdale.
