Shirley (Gan-Gan) Case returned to her heavenly home on Sunday, October 8, 2017. Surrounded by family and with her firm belief in God, she ended her struggles and was granted eternal peace.

They had two children, Roxanne Case Lowry Vrbka and John Stephen Case. From this small loving family she was blessed with 7 Grandchildren, 11 Great Grandchildren and 1 Great, Great Granddaughter.

Gan-Gan loved unconditionally, and was actively involved in a wide variety of her loved ones activities. From Dance Recitals/Competitions, to baseball, hockey, and football games, she was there to cheer and encourage the children. She was an avid quilter and a pillar in her church community. She will be truly missed by all, both young and old.

My sympathies to the Case family members.
I knew Shirley as an employee at the can making plant in Denison. She was an oh so important member of the quality assurance team there. She was constant and careful in helping us provide a quality product to our customer. She was a good person and made an important contribution to our success.
My best to you all in this sad time.

Shirley became a regular at the SHS Class of 1954 monthly luncheons about two years ago. It was so great for us to all renew this relationship after all the years that had passed. She will truly be missed.
