Shirley Ann Karl, 92, passed away Sunday, Nov. 4, 2018, at her residence in Peoria, Illinois. She was surrounded by her family singing, praying and celebrating her transition to eternal life.
Shirley was born July 19, 1926, in Peoria, Illinois. On Feb. 5, 1944, Shirley Ann Egan accepted James G. Karl's hand in marriage to build an earthly life together that has now come full circle. Shirley Ann is now reunited with her husband; and three of her sons, Stuart, Gregory and Thomas; and grandson, Bobby.

Shirley prayed every morning for the salvation of her family and for the unborn. She is also preceded in death by several grandchildren, who were naturally called home to be with the Lord before birth.
