Obituary for Shirley A. Wennerholt

PEORIA HEIGHTS – Shirley A. Wennerholt, 94, of Peoria Heights, died on Monday, March 25, 2019, at Snyder Village in Metamora.

Shirley was born on November 11, 1924, to Robert and Mabel (Hansen) Kopp. Shirley married Paul Wennerholt on April 2, 1948; he preceded her in death on July 12, 1991.

She is also preceded in death by her parents; her daughter, Tammi Wennerholt; and her sister, Polly Wise.

Shirley is survived by her sons, Robert (Kiko) Wennerholt and Steven (Janet) Wennerholt; and her daughter, Julie Hayden; many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Shirley’s career was mainly in secretarial work. She will be remembered most for her overwhelming sweetness and being, deep-down, the most considerate person to everyone. She was very active in Scouts and was a wonderful Den mother, which fed her passion for the outdoors.

Cremation rites have been accorded. Services will be private.

The family would like to extend a special thank you to the staff at Snyder Village for their compassionate and thoughtful care throughout Shirley’s life, please feel free to make memorial donations to Snyder Village in her honor.
