Shirlee Ann Riddle, age 80, passed away peacefully Monday, March 24, 2014, at Sharon S. Richardson Community Hospice.

She was born July 30, 1933 in Eugene, Ore., to Henry and Lilliann (Hardmann) Fee. She attended Catholic elementary and high school in Eugene and went on to further her studies at Oregon State University where she met the love of her life, Paul A. Riddle.

Paul and Shirlee were united in marriage Aug. 15, 1953, in Honolulu, Hawaii. Together they lived in numerous cities out west until they moved their family to Sheboygan in 1969.

Shirlee worked various accounting and healthcare positions retiring from Sunny Ridge Skilled Nursing Home.

Shirlee was most interested in spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She enjoyed planning grand parties for holidays and birthdays. She also enjoyed playing cards, games, singing, listening to music, playing piano, and traveling.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 50 years, Paul; her parents; two brothers, Jack and Newman Michael; her mother- and father-in-law; and many aunts, uncles and friends.

Shirlee is survived by her six daughters, Terri Shaw, Suzy (Mike) Mech, Janice Dekker, Kathryn (Casey) Palmisano, Stacy (Ryan) Hopp, Mary (Mike) Rautmann and son, Kirk; grandchildren, Christine Ruska, Sarah (Adam) Bayer, Jennifer (Troy) Bartel, Jessica (Chris) Burke, Michele Mech, Alan Dekker, Paul, Matthew and Kayleigh Palmisano, Haylee and Anne Marie Hopp, Abigail, Natalie and Josie Rautmann; and her five great-grandchildren, Alicia and Kaitlin Bullock, Riley and Miles Burke and Bryce Bartel. She will be greatly missed by her three soul sisters, Diana, Louise and Diana, as well as many loving friends.

A gathering and Service of Remembrance will be held for Shirlee at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 29, at Trinity Lutheran Church, 824 Wisconsin Ave. in Sheboygan. Senior Pastor Timothy J. Mech will officiate. Entombment will follow at the Chapel of Eternal Light Mausoleum of Greenlawn Memorial Park.

Friends may call at the church Saturday from 10 a.m. until the time of the service.
