February 23, 1921 – March 6, 2019

On March 6, 2019 Shirley Joan (Wright) Yager left this earth to join her Lord and her husband in Heaven.

Shirley was born in Walla Walla, Washington on Feb. 23, 1921 to P.W. and Lola Wright. Along with her three brothers, she was raised on a farm near Lind, Washington. She was a graduate of Lind High School.

On Sept. 23, 1939 she married Harvey Yager and would spend her days as a farmer’s wife on the farm until they retired and moved to their new home in Othello. She was a member of Pilgrim Lutheran Church. Shirley enjoyed playing golf with her friends, making quilts at church with her quilting group and traveling to China, Tahiti, Hawaii and other locations, as well as fishing trips to Twin Lakes and the coast. She also enjoyed many gatherings with her beloved family.

She leaves behind three children Joan Lawson of Moses Lake, Mary Ann (Larry) Kirkpatrick of Othello and Craig (Julie) Yager of Connell; grandchildren Jim (Kathy) Rollins, Jay (Carmen) Rollins, Tami Sandusky, Mike Rollins, Lynn (Criss) Wahl, Terry (Amy) Kirkpatrick, Lonnie (Sue) Kirkpatrick, Amy Farrell, Rob (Patricia) Yager, Jake (Kelli) Yager, TJ Yager and Willie (Hannah) Yager plus 30 great-grandchildren and 33 great-great-grandchildren. Shirley was preceded in death by her husband Harvey; parents P.W. and Lola Wright; brothers Bob, Don, Dean and Duane; one grandson, one great-grandson and two great-great-granddaughters. Shirley will be missed by her many other friends and relatives.

A celebration of her life will be held at Pilgrim Lutheran Church in Othello on Saturday, March 16, 2019 at 11 a.m. Memorials may be made to the charity of your choice. Condolences may be left at www.stevensfc.com.

Kick back and relax, Mom – you’ve certainly earned it.
