Shirley Ann Wilson, age 71, of New Philadelphia, died peacefully, early Friday, March 26, 2021, while in the care of Community Hospice’s Truman House at New Philadelphia following a brief battle with cancer.

Prior to her retirement, Shirley worked for 34 years as an LPN. She enjoyed spending each morning on her front porch making sure the neighborhood cats and squirrels were well fed. She also spent every Saturday during racing season cheering on her son, Kevin, at Midvale Speedway. Shirley loved being able to babysit her great-grandchildren and spend time at the casinos.

Completing the family are her siblings, Wanda Burkhart, Linda (Mac Gribble) Schiele, Debb (Cheryl Stankiewiz) Zinn, and Shelly (Dan) Croston as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents, Shirley was preceded in death by a brother, Jerry Kaiser and her long-time companion, David Klar.
