Shirley was born on March 4, 1938, the daughter of Joseph H. and Elda M. (Heinn) Ellingsworth at St. Paul, MN. She grew up in St. Paul, and was united in marriage to Kenneth R. Seymour on August 1, 1955. Shirley went to Mechanical Arts School, worked at Montgomery Ward during Christmas Season in St. Paul, and was a cleaning lady in Stillwater, St. Cloud and the Brainerd Area. She was also a Nanny, and mother to our friends. Shirley loved to garden, feed the birds, liked all animals, and loved to watch God’s creations, especially sunsets.

Shirley happily flew home into the arms of God and was reunited with her husband Kenneth and son Jeffery, in addition to her parents.

She is survived by one daughter Teri Seymour, and one son John Seymour (Connie Popp), uncle Alec (Jill) Heinn, aunt Irene Hanson, adoptive grandchildren Blake, Loren, Jesse and Halley and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
