Shirley was born on April 10, 1937, in Marshfield, to Bernard and Lucille (Randles) Fellenz. She attended Marshfield schools. She married Roger Seehafer and they later divorced.

Shirley had been employed at Weinbrenner Shoe Factory for 30 years until her retirement in 1999. She also lovingly provided home health care for many until she no longer could, due to health reasons. Shirley’s priorities in life were Faith, Family, Friends, Flowers and her love of pets, especially dogs, which she passed on to her children. She was a longtime member of Immanuel Lutheran Church where she enjoyed many Bible studies and church activities over the years, including Prayer Partners, Tape Ministry and visiting the shut-ins. After moving to the Parkview Apartments (the “High Rise”) she made many friends and became involved with the Red Hat Society and participated in Bible studies there as well. She enjoyed working on puzzles with her “puzzle buddies.” She also maintained friendships with her former co-workers from Weinbrenner and a lifelong friend, Jean, whom she met in 3rd grade. When she lived at her home, she took great pride in her many flower gardens, especially her roses for which she received awards at the Central Wisconsin Fair.

She is survived by her children, Kathy Seehafer of Marshfield, Ken (Kathy) Seehafer of River Falls, Gary (Brenda) Seehafer of Jackson, TN, Dan Seehafer of Stratford, Dean Seehafer of Manitowoc, Steve (Dasie) Seehafer of Spencer, and Amy Roggenbauer of Wausau. She is further survived by 14 grandchildren, Trinity, Tina, Alisha, Nick, Randy, Derek, Ashley, Brady, Brennan, Cailin, Ryan, Josh, Amber, and Anthony, and three great-grandchildren, Gunnar, Kaden, and Mason.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a brother, Richard “Dick” Fellenz and a sister Mary Ploog.

The family wishes to thank the wonderful Palliative Care staff at Marshfield Medical Center for their loving and tender care.
