Shirley A. Check

January 28, 1938 — December 4, 2022

Shirley A. Check, 84, passed away peacefully December 4, 2022, at Wellington Place at Rib Mountain.

 

Shirley was born January 28, 1938, in Wausau, WI to the late William and Evelyn (Smith) Aldridge. She married Clarence (Fat) J. Check on October 24, 1959, at Saint Therese Catholic Church. During Shirley’s 48+ years of marriage, she was employed as a domestic goddess – more commonly known as being dedicated to the home and motherhood.

 

Shirley’s hobbies and interests included feeding the hummingbirds, birds and wildlife, gardening, canning, and baking. The real activity that gave her the greatest joy and sense of peace of mind was during times she went fishing with her husband, Clarence, in the Sayner, WI area. Hence, why the motif of a couple out fishing in their boat was chosen for their tombstone.

 

Shirley is survived by her son James W. Check of Weston, WI, daughters Lynn M. (Eric) Schurter of Punta Gorda, FL and Lori A. Check of Weston, WI and sister Merceda Gehrke of Phillips, WI.  Shirley was preceded in death by her husband Clarence, on October 2, 2007; son David J. Check; brothers Donald and Dale Aldridge; sisters Delores Furger and Nancy Kopplin.

 

The funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11:30 am on Friday, December 9, 2022, at Saint Therese Catholic Church, 113 W. Kort St., Rothschild. Visitation will begin at 10:00 am. The service may also be viewed at this webpage. Father Joseph Albert will officiate. All donations will be given to St. Therese Catholic Church, to be used towards one of the church improvement projects. Burial will be held at Gate of Heaven Cemetery, Kronenwetter.
