Maslowski, Shirley Elaine (5 April 1935 - 27 October 2009)  

Shirley E. Maslowski, age 74, of Thorp, passed away on Tuesday, October 27, 2009, at Wissota Health in Chippewa Falls. 

Shirley Elaine Moen was born on April 5, 1935, in Withee, WI, the daughter of Chester and Leona (Nindorf) Moen.  She was raised in and received her education in the Thorp and Withee area.  She graduated from Withee High School in 1953. 

She married Edward Maslowski in 1954 at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Chicago. They later moved back to Wisconsin and farmed until 1975.  Shirley worked at the Thorpedo restaurant for five years, and then at ITT Life Insurance until the company moved out of town.  She then worked as a baker for the remainder of her working days. 

Shirley loved to travel, play cards and games. She always had a book near at hand.  Shirley liked to have fun and didn’t take life too seriously. 

Shirley will be sadly missed by her husband, Ed, and her sister, Janice Blume, and the seven children she and Ed raised: Jean Emery, Nancy (Arlen) Offord, Sally (Keith) Seaman, Susan Leonard, Charlie Maslowski and Michael (Heidi) Maslowski.  She is also survived by her grandchildren: Jesse (Jodi) Smith, Albert Smith, Jamie Smith, Mitch Offord, Luke Seaman and Carmen (Brian) Abramczak; and her great-grandchildren: Carter Smith, Tyler Maslowski, Brock Maslowski, Reese Maslowski and Thomas Abramczak. 

Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, November 7, 2009, at St. Bernard-St. Hedwig Catholic Church in Thorp, with Fr. Keith Apfelbeck officiating.  Burial will follow in New  St. Hedwig’s Catholic Cemetery. Visitation will be held at the church on Saturday, from 9:30 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. 

Shirley’s family requests that memorials be made to the Thorp Catholic School Library Fund in her name.
