On February 18, 2018 Shirley Elaine Maddy passed away with her family at her side. She was a wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother.
Shirley was born in Wenatchee, Washington on March 25, 1940 to Harley & Luella Eastwood. Their family lived in the northwest area mostly in the Spokane region. While in the company of her lifetime friend she met Bob Maddy. On August 11, 1958 they were married and stayed that way until her departure.
As a determined and strong-willed woman her accomplishments were many. She always had a couple projects going on at the same time. While still raising a family, she enrolled into Cosmetology School. She worked her way up to be a successful beauty shop owner in Stanwood, Washington. Shirley was also an accomplished cake decorator. Her hobbies included fishing, hunting, gardening, golfing, sewing and crocheting. She also did some upholstery work. In her later years she loved to do puzzles.
Although she led an active life, the combination of Pulmonary Fibrosis and breast cancer proved to be too much.
Shirley has joined her parents, three sisters (Ruby, Ruth and Florence) and her brother Don. She is survived by her sister Beverly Joy. She also leaves behind her husband Bob of 59 ½ years, four children Rick with wife Lorie, Cathy, Ron with wife Vicki and Karen with husband Kevin. Additionally, she leaves behind 12 grandchildren, 21 great grandchildren and 3 babies that she didn’t get to meet. She will be greatly missed by all.
Please give any memorial donations to the fight against breast cancer or a right to life foundation. Services will be at Sherman Campbell Funeral Home in Newport. Time and date to be determined.
