Shirley “Nonny” Pichette, 93, passed away peacefully at home on Monday, October 16, 2023, with her family by her side. She was born on July 4, 1930, in Green Bay, to the late Roy and Rose O’Donnell. Nonny adored her family and cherished every moment with them. She enjoyed her time feeding the squirrels and the birds and sitting on the swing in her back yard. Nonny loved her trips to Eddie Whipps and to the Rite Place. She liked to watch Lawrence Welk and game shows. Her Fourth of July birthday celebration, put on by her daughter Kim, was her favorite event of the year.
One of Nonny’s last wishes was to be in her home until her final journey and with the help of her children and Carrie that wish came true.
Nonny will be missed by her husband of 67 years John Pichette; her children, Dave (Stephanie) Pichette, Sandy (Jim) Vandenberg, Tom “Fletch” (Shelley) Pichette, Pam ( Pete) Dallman, Kim Wacker; grandchildren, Mike (Casey) Pichette, Robbie Pichette, Danny Pichette, Jimmy (fiancé Deanna) Pichette, Jill (Christian) Olson, Joe (Maria) Vandenberg, Jacy (Matt) Petersen, Alex (Angel) Pichette, Larissa (Kyle) Heller, Kasey (Hurue) Paulos, Brad (Jessica) Dallman, Travis Wacker and Lawton Wacker; great grandchildren, Miles and Odin, Cameron, Brady, Everett and Will, Maddie, Ellie, Sam and Gen, Kali, Eli, and special angel Jason who was born the day Nonny passed. Nonny is further survived by many nieces and nephews.
