5 Condolences for Shirley Ann Marsh

  • Bud, Kirsta, Jim & Dave,

    Our hearts are saddened by your loss and our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

    Jim & Leigh Ann

  • Bud, Krista, Jim, David and all the Grandchildren,

    The world has lost a truly incredible person. Ann is such a huge part of my childhood memories. I always like to visit with her and show her my new shoes so that she could see how fast they made me run. Her smile and her laugh where simply beautiful. I honestly can’t ever recall seeing her angry, but I am pretty sure David may have seen it. Ann was simply the sweetest person I have ever known and although I know she will be deeply missed by all of you, My heart also fills with joy knowing that she has been FULLY restored to a health, happy hearing women. Her pain is gone and her love for all of you is unending. She can see all of you now from her seat next to the Father and she knows who you are. I have no doubt that Tracy greeted her with a huge smile, tears of joy and opened arms. Ann was so deeply loved by all of us, and we are all so very heartbroken for you.


  • Condolences to the family.
