Beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend Shirley Ann Marie Zarnick, age 85, of Butler was received in heaven on Sunday, January 22, 2023. She was greeted by husband Paul “Dave” Zarnick, parents Katherine and Vincent Lorenz, her son Dr. Philip D. Zarnick, and daughter Rene’ N. Zarnick, who all preceded her in death.
Shirley was born August 26th, 1937 in Monaca, PA. She enjoyed a rich family life with siblings, Vincent, Joanne, Phyllis and Bo, who preceded her in death.
A kindhearted and empathy-filled matriarch to a large family, Shirley opened her doors to all in need. She found solace in easing the woes of family and friends with love and compassion. Shirley’s philosophy of life included putting her loved ones above all else. She would go to any length to see her friends and family bonding in togetherness.
In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, crafting, video games, gardening, sunbathing, bowling, spending time with her pets and sharing in laughter with friends and family.
Surviving are her two daughters: Paula Snodgrass and Joni (Susan) Zarnick.
Six grandchildren: Justin (Heather) Snodgrass, Kathryn (Kenny) Kisow, Richelle (Mark) Baldwin, Alexandria Bowser, Zane (Kristan) Eury and Alex Weil.
