Shirley Marie Linnebur, 91, was called unto eternity on December 1, 2020. She was born on July 14, 1929 to Fred and Elizabeth Schick in Pasadena, California.

Shirley attended the Box Elder School through the 8th grade and Brighton High School through the 12th. After graduation she worked her way through business school as a live-in nanny for a doctor.
