Shirley J. Warren, 82, passed away peacefully in her home on Saturday, June 16, 2012, after a two year battle with pulmonary fibrosis and heart disease, with two of her 'earth angels,' grandkids, Shane Beach and Tina Friedell, by her side. Shirley Jean was born an only child in Kansas City, Missouri, on December 26, 1929, to William and Pearl Hockman. Shortly thereafter, her family moved to Las Animas, Colo. In 1946, she married Robert Warren and they moved to Pueblo. She is preceded in death by husband, Robert; daughter, Connie Beach; son-in-law, James W. Martin; and sister-in-law, Helen Fields. Survived by daughter, Patti Friedell-Martin; son-in-law, Harvey Beach; grandchildren, Shane Beach, Tina Friedell, Kim (Chris) Beach-Quick; three great-grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren.

Shirley loved her life and was a real 'go getter.' She was a loving, loyal wife and the very best mom and grandma that she could be. It still warms our hearts thinking of how much she just ABSOLUTELY LOVED PEOPLE! Our family would like to thank Dr. I.

  1. Mrs. Warren–as we both always called her–was a gracious lady. She was a good neighbor to our mother, Mickey Brown. We remember good talks, delicious cookies and admiring her stained glass projects. She loved her family, her neighbors, and her God. Blessings for the Lord’s strong comfort and for good memories of the many years you all had with her!

  2. Shirley was our neighbor when I was a baby, up until we moved when I was about 8 or 9yrs old. She lived across the street and I can always remember talking to her whenever I saw her outside. I always told her ‘Hi’ and told her how pretty she was. My Mother & Father, Mary & Jim McClure, kept in touch with Shirley & Robert even after we moved. Later, when I was a letter carrier on the route where Shirley had her beauty salon, I would always stop in (even if she didn’t have mail) and chat with her for a few minutes (she always had time). I always enjoyed, and felt priviledged to see and talk with Shirley and Robert; a big warm hug & a kiss on the cheek was always a must. Shirley was one of my Momma’s closest and dearest friends (mine too) and she will be missed greatly.

  3. So many good time memories of family fishing and camping trips. Aunt Shirley was so wonderful and always had a smile and a hug for anyone. Who won’t remember “bless you little heart”. We love you and miss you. Pam, Buck and Family
