Shirley Zuroski, a beloved soul who graced this world for 90 years, passed away on November 17, 2023. Born on April 15, 1933, Shirley enriched the lives of those around her with her warmth, kindness, and unwavering love.

She was a loving wife, mother, mother-in-law, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

John and Shirley, brought together by a mutual friend, built a loving relationship that withstood the test of time. Their connection deepened through shared laughter, standing together through all of life’s ups and downs and formed a commitment to their beautiful family, that was like no other. Together, they created a lifetime of beautiful moments. They would have been celebrating their 74th wedding anniversary in January.

A pillar of strength and wisdom, Shirley leaves behind a legacy of compassion and joy. Her nurturing spirit touched the hearts of family and friends alike, creating enduring memories that will be cherished for generations to come.

Shirley’s zest for life was evident in her passions, whether it be in her love for gardening, her creativity in sewing, the fondness of baking for others, and the joy she found in spending time with loved ones. Her grace and resilience in the face of life’s challenges serve as an inspiration to all who had the privilege of knowing her.

She is survived by her husband, John Zuroski; children: Peggy, Cindy (John), Laurie (Bill), and Russell (Angela); grandchildren: Shane, Troy (Erin), Cory (Meghan), Jesse (Michelle), Clint, Kylie (Joey), Racheal (Jesus), Johnny (Carrie), Danielle (Talan), and Matthew (Karissa); great- grandchildren: Sam (Kailey), Gabbi, Leo, Ashlynn, Maddi, Cole, Kaily, Dylan, Tyler, Emalee, Ethan, Austin, Lucas, Beckett, Grayson, Bronson, Emmett, Blake, Hudson, Lucianna, Russell, and Anderson.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Adolf and Martha Kreye; daughter, Debbie Zuroski; sons-in-law, Bill Allmendinger and Larry Anzalone; brother, Walt; sister, Marsha.

In honoring Shirley’s memory, let us celebrate a life well-lived and carry forward the love she so generously shared. The impact of her presence will forever resonate in our hearts.

May she rest in eternal peace, her spirit forever alive in the cherished memories of those who were fortunate enough to call her a friend and loved one.

    Dear Johnny and Family,
    I am so very sorry for your suffering in Shirley’s passing. I have so many fond memories from my childhood, spending it stopping by, having easter egg wars, or having you at our family’s events celebrating and mourning with us. My mom is just heartbroken to have lost her “best friend.” They always had so many stories to tell of when they lived next door. I am so very sorry and sending you all much love. -Joanne Jarzobski (Shirley’s goddaughter)
