Shirley was born in Marshall, Missouri on December 19, 1935 to Clarence Tomlinson and Freda (Gramlich) Tomlinson. After graduating high school, Shirley continued her education at Missouri Valley and Longview. For many years she worked in civil service. In life Shirley was blessed with three sons, Danny, Bruce, and Jerry. She was a member of St. Sabina Catholic Church. Shirley enjoyed going to old country concerts, playing slot machines, bargain shopping, and enjoyed a glass of wine or a margarita. She would also proudly admit to anyone that she could yodel. More than anything Shirley cherished the time with her family during the holidays and attending her grandchildren’s sporting events all over the Midwest.
Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Freda Tomlinson.
She is survived by her three sons, Danny Chevalier, Bruce Chevalier (Sherie), and Jerry Chevalier; seven grandchildren, Joe Chevalier (Alisha), Matt Chevalier, Terry Beeley, Caleb Chevalier, Molly Chevalier, Cole Chevalier (Alissa), and Blake Chevalier (Kelly); and numerous great grandchildren.
