(1934 - 2021)
Shirley Ann Renshaw, originally of Newport, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully in her sleep on Thursday, Nov 18, 2021, in Parkville MD, from complications due to Parkinson's disease. Shirley and her husband John had resided there since 2018; they had previously lived in Bel Air, MD since 1992. Shirley was 86 years old.
Shirley was very active in the communities in which she resided. Most recently, she volunteered at Tabitha House, a faith-based charity in Bel Air, at her church, Bel Air United Methodist Church, and at the Treasure's Chest, a benevolent fund benefitting residents of Oak Crest Senior Living Community, where she and John currently live. Shirley was also passionate about animals, especially cats. She volunteered at the Harford County Animal Shelter and Luna's House in Edgewood.
Shirley is survived by her husband of 61 years, John, and her two daughters, Cynthia Lion of Reston, VA, Christine Gregory of Havre de Grace, MD, and grandchildren Hannah and Margaret Gregory, also of Havre de Grace. Shirley also made many lifetime friends throughout the years who will miss her.
Shirley will be buried at Rolling Green Cemetery in Camp Hill, PA, where a family ceremony will be held on November 26th. There will be a Celebration of Life service at Bel Air United Methodist Church on January 9, 2022.
