Shirley was born June 19, 1935 to James and Margaret Evans in Tacoma, WA. She passed peacefully in Graham, WA on December, 8th 2018.
Shirley's family lived in Puyallup until the age of 8. Then moving to Midland where she attended Midland Middle School and Lincoln High School.

Together they have 4 children Debbie Wilson(Dennis), Jim Gunderson (Heather), Donna Gunderson-Grazzini (Gary), Robert Gunderson (Debbie). During Bob's 20 year career in the Air Force the family lived in WY, ILL, CA, NM, Sevilla Spain, back to Tacoma, and finally settling in Graham, WA. Shirley worked at the Puyallup Library in the 70's and Ed's Moving and Storage until her retirement. Shirley loved to cook and was excellent at it! Especially her famous potato salad. She loved any word games, especially crossword puzzles. She did not like to lose at Pinochle.
