Shirley graduated from high school at Richland in 1946 and then attended teacher’s college prior to teaching at Williamson country school. Her teaching career was interrupted by her lifelong love Bill Harry. They were united in marriage in August of 1949. To this union five children were born: Rick, Dan, Chris, Deb, and Scott. Shirley and Bill had a good life together through the peaks and valleys of their journey. She especially enjoyed their annual trip to Arizona and the friends they made in the 30 years of being snowbirds. Her yard in Iowa was her pride and joy with flowers and more flowers.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Bill in 2014 and son, Rick in 1995.

She is survived by her two daughters, Chris Corkrean (Jim) and Deb Harry all of Orient; two sons, Dan Harry (Peggy) of Chinook, Montana and Scott Harry (Lynne) of Orient; 10 grandchildren; 17 great grandchildren; sister, Betty Craig of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; brother-in-law, Arden Kramer of Orient; other relatives and friends.
