On October 4, 2023, our mom, grandma and great grandma Shirley was peacefully called to her heavenly home, she was 94 years old. Shirley was born in Lena, WI with the family soon moving to Abrams, WI where she spent her childhood. Shirley graduated from Oconto Falls High School and married the love of her life Andrew Machurick Jr at St. Louis Catholic Church, Abrams. Together they raised three daughters residing in Green Bay.
Shirley was a devout Catholic never missing mass, prayed the rosary every night and shared her faith administering holy communion to hospitalized parishioners. Whenever someone was in need she always said, “I will pray for you!”
She was an avid Milwaukee Brewers fan, listening to games on the radio. A Green Bay Packers fan attending games at City Stadium, Lambeau Field and Super Bowl II. Shirley and Andy enjoyed fishing on Lake Michigan and vacationing on Sanibel Island, and Fort Meyers, Florida.
