Shirley Ann Stephens Partridge and Kenneth Alma Partridge married on April 8, 1951. Our Beloved Mother was reunited with the Love of Her Life on Aug. 9, 2008.
Shirley Ann was born on Jan. 1, 1934 to John Lewis and Laura Lepreo Stephens.
She is survived by her sons, (KP) Kenneth W. (Beth), William R (Ivy), and Thomas A. (Vicki), all of Moab. She is also survived by eight grandchildren and six great-grandchildren; sister, Dorothy Landry of Moab, and brother, Bob (Charolette) Stephens of Washington; and many nephews, nieces and other family.
Shirley was preceded in death by the Love of Her Life, her husband, Kenneth A. Partridge, grandson Joshua Partridge, two sisters and two brothers and parents. Shirley was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. She enjoyed riding on the mountain, camping and crafts, but the most joy was in spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, who always could bring a smile.
She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her. Funeral services will be held at the LDS Stake Center on Locust Lane on Thursday, Aug. 14. A viewing will be held at 8 a.m., with the funeral services at 9 a.m. A viewing will also be held at the Kimmerle Funeral Home on Wednesday, Aug. 13 at 7 p.m.
The family wishes to thank the nurses and staff of Allen Memorial Hospital for all their support during their mother’s illness.
