Shirley Marie Hinrichs, 81, passed away Tuesday, April 6, 2021.

Shirley was born June 7, 1939 in Avon Lake, Iowa to Glenn and Opal (Smalley) McDougal. She worked as a medical administrator for Mercy Medical Center for many years. She was a 1958 graduate of Altoona High School where she was in the Senior Play, on the annual staff, and an office worker.

She also owned and operated a square dance apparel store for 9 years with her husband, Ed. They organized many fun bus trips to square dance conventions and other outings. She was a people person, there was never a stranger to her, she would light up any room she walked into with her down-home charm and charisma. Many lovingly called her “Mom”.

She is survived by her sons, Steven, Michael (and Sherri), and Jeffrey (and Ellen); foster son, Tim; six grandsons, Matthew, Andrew, Kain, Justin, Joe, and Jacob; and three great grandchildren, Brayden, Nolen and Addison. She is also survived by her brother, Richard (and Mary Ann) and her sister, Kathy (and Marshall).

Shirley was preceded in death by her mother Opal, her father Glenn, her brother Jackie (infant), and her husband Harold.
