Shirley Jean Christensen

Shirley Jean Christensen

We lovingly remember Shirley Jean Christensen, who peacefully passed away from this life on March 27, 2011, with her daughter by her side.

She was born in Jamestown, N.Y., on August 3, 1933, to Ralph and Alice Fralick. She married her late husband Wilbur L. Christensen in 1956 and lived in Corry, Pa., until 2008 and then moved to Tucson, Ariz.

Shirley is survived by a daughter, Shawna Hollander and her husband, Steve, of Tucson, Ariz.; a son, Stacy Christensen and his wife, Laura, of Jamestown, N.Y.; six grandchildren, Amber, Alisha and Nathan of Tucson, Ariz., and Kelly, Karole and Kathleen of Jamestown, N.Y.; and six great-grandchildren, Shane, Justice, Payge, Jayde, Chrissa and Vanessa, of Tucson.

She also is survived by a special nephew, Marc Fralick and his wife, Cindy, of Corry, who took care and helped her before she moved to Tucson. She also leaves behind many friends and family in Pennsylvania, New York, and Tucson.

Shirley’s wishes were to be cremated, and in accordance with her wishes there will be no formal service.

Donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association or Heartland Hospice of Tucson, Ariz.
