Shirley Joan Batchelor
Aug 20, 1935 – Jan 10, 2016
Beloved wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and great great grandmother lost her battle with cancer on Sunday, January 10th, 2016 at 7:22 am. She fought the good fight, affectionately known as a tough Norwegian.
Loved by everyone who came accross her path, and she unconditionally loved many in return. She was often refered as "Mom" by many. You couldn't ask for a better wife, sister, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great great grandmother, and true friend. She will be missed dearly.
Our hearts are saddened and breaking, wishing we could keep such a wonderful person with us forever. But we are greatful that she is in the comforting arms of the Lord, and those that went before her. As hard as it is to have her taken from us, we find peace knowing that she is no longer in pain.
Survived by her son; W Kevin Batchelor, daughters; Lindy Armand, Patty Hemmen and her huband Dave, brother; Paul Dybdahl and his wife Sally, grandchildren; Robbie Batchelor, Ashley Batchelor and her husband Kevin, Glorie Johnson, Marty Shaughnessy and his wife Patty, great grandchildren; Jori Benson and her husband Zack, Steven Johnson, Shelbi Grant, Brandon Shaughnessy and his wife Jessica, Mary Kate Bunce and her husband Dakota, Sierra Howe, Cheyanne Howe, and Omry Howe, great great grandchildren; Ava Mae Howe, Taelynn Benson, Diclan Benson, Patrick Shaughnessy, Hunter Shaughnessy, and Carson Shaughnessy. Preceded in death by her loving huband; Walt Batchelor, grandson; Lonnie Howe, and her parents; Ed and Elena Kirchhof.
