Shirley Mae Holmgreen, age 87, passed away at the Park Vista Assisted Living Home in Waupaca, WI on May 8, 2022.
Shirley was born to Charles and Leone (Madsen) Barden on April 25, 1935 in Lanark, WI. On June 28, 1958 Shirley was united in marriage to Robert Holmgreen in Amherst, WI.
Her husband, Robert worked on the railroad, so the two of them moved to several cities and states throughout his career. Shirley would always find a job when they moved, and it often was in medical billing. She was always active in her church including serving in the quilting group and volunteering at many church events. She was a lifelong reader and in her retirement started scrapbooking, creating many beautiful family albums. Overall, her children and grandchildren were her pride and joy and she always made sure the Holidays were perfect for them.
Shirley is survived by her three children, Karen McDonough of DePere, Lorraine (Vernon) Eliason of Moore, SC and David Holmgreen of Schererville, IN; grandchildren, Nolan (Gabrielle) Eliason, Taylor Eliason, Jacob Holmgreen and Claire Holmgreen.
She is preceded in death by her parents; husband, Robert; brothers, Charles R. Barden and Philip F. Barden.
