Shirley Ann Kolze
Shirley Ann Kolze, age 83, of Hollister, Missouri, passed away Saturday, May 23, 2020. She entered this life September 19, 1936, in Eagle, Wisconsin, the daughter of Arthur and Evanglene (Brightenbath) Stocks, who have preceded her in death. She was joined in marriage June 21, 1959, to Ronald Kolze. Arrangements and cremation are under the direction of Cremations of the Ozarks.
Shirley grew up on a farm in Wisconsin, so it came naturally for her to plant and grow a garden and flowers. She dedicated 28 years working as a secretary for the Palmyra Illinois school district. One of her joys of life was going to work out at the YMCA with the love of her life, Ron. The love she shared and the life she lived will
leave memories to be shared for years to come. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
Shirley is survived by her husband of nearly 61 years, Ronald Kolze of the home; daughter, Donna (Tom) Holehouse of Florida; brother, Bob Stocks of Wisconsin; and many friends and extended family.
Shirley will be inurned in Wisconsin at a later time. Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Ozark Mountain YMCA (www.orymca.org).
