Obituary

Shirley Warne, 85, of Atlantic, died Thursday, April 18, 2019, at Heritage House in Atlantic.

Shirley Ann Bissell, the daughter of Charles Steven and Gertrude A. (Gordon) Bissell, was born on March 30, 1934, near Cumberland, Iowa. She grew up on the family farm and graduated from Cumberland High School in 1950. On January 28, 1951, she was united in marriage to Marvin D. Steffens. Four daughters, Cindy, Judy, Terri and Eileen, were born to this union. Shirley was united in marriage to Kendal C. Warne, Sr. on February 14, 1983, in Westphalia, Iowa.

Shirley was employed in the Treasurer’s Office at the Cass County Courthouse for 14 years. She was Deputy Treasurer, before her retirement on December 14, 1994. She served on the Library Board from 1992-2000 and represented the 2nd Ward on City Council for from 2000 - 2003. Shirley was a longtime member of the BPO Does; holding the office of President in 1979. She was also a member of a quilting club and the Red Hat Ladies. Her love for antiques and auctions led her to see what treasures she might find many Thursday nights. Shirley and Kendal looked forward to spending time at their cabin with family and friends. The couple also attended many of Kendal’s Iowa Firemen Conventions where they met many lifelong friends. The outside of her home was always full of color with her well-tended flower gardens; which she took great pride in. In her quieter moments, she often picked up her quilting or crochet work. Shirley was an avid reader; always having a novel at her fingertips.

Shirley is survived by her daughters, Cindy Turk of Dayton, OH, Judy Andersen of Atlantic, Terri Ehrman of Omaha, NE, and Eileen (Bruce) Horrie of Plano, TX; grandchildren, Jennifer (Tim) Farrell, Staci Adkins, Owen (Kate) Turk, Brian (Megan) Andersen, Daniel Andersen, Sarah (Isaac Gaines) Andersen, Melissa (Jim) Johnson, James (Lisa Pedersen) Ehrman, Cody (Kara) Lee, and Kaitlyn Lee; step-children, Kendal “Gus” Warne, Jr. (Jane Studer) of Atlantic and Jennifer (Gary) McConnell of Council Bluffs, IA; and sister, Audrey Nielsen.

To Shirley's family,
Shirley was such a great neighbor and friend from the first day we meant her when we moved to town in 2008. I will miss our many coffeetimes in her house or the garage. We would do a lot of laughing as she had a great sense of humor. Shirley was a wonderful lady and will be missed by everyone who knew her. May the comfort of your faith, your family and your friends get you thru the diffucult times. Take care...you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Our deepest sympathy, Mel and Joyce Enfield
