Shirley Irene Derr

Shirley Irene Derr, age 94 of Buffalo, died Friday, Jan. 28, 2005.

She was a beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother; and her home was a wonderland of dolls, toys, and costumes for all the grandchildren to enjoy.

Shirley’s artistry was expressed by costuming antique dolls, making mascot outfits for local high school sports teams, and helping any church or community group costume plays and pageants. All of the children and grandchildren had the best Halloween costumes ever!

She was also a master at taking “junkque” and turning it into something wonderful.

Shirley had an open heart and was loving and kind to all she met, regardless of race or creed. Her legacy is a large circle of loving friends and family who wish her well in the Abha Kingdom.

Memorial celebration will be Saturday, Feb. 26 at 10 a.m. at the Minneapolis Baha’i Center at 37th and Chicago.

Arrangements are by the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.
