Shirley King Stoll

November 10, 1928 – April 9, 2020

Shirley (King) Stoll passed away peacefully in Willmar, Minnesota, on April 9, 2020. Shirley was born in Buffalo, Wyoming, on November 10, 1928, to Clark and Pauline (Walsh) King.

As a child, her family moved to Ronan, Montana, where she graduated from high school. She loved music, lettered in tennis, and had a wonderful art teacher that fostered her life-long love of creating.

Shirley married Ray Stoll on June 27, 1948, and they raised three daughters, Gini (Joe) Hawe, Sharon (Mike) Oleson, and Carol (Ron) Edgley in Montana.

After Ray passed away, Shirley relocated two Sequim to be near Gini’s family. She oil painted, gardened, bowled, golfed, and found a new art passion: driftwood! She was an active member of Peninsula Driftwood Artists and produced beautiful driftwood sculptures that she gifted to loved ones. Being born during the Depression, she used to say that the thing she remembered most was being cold. She used her talents to sew dozens of patchwork quilts that she donated so the recipients wouldn’t be cold anymore. In her later years, she started making cards for veterans and nursing home occupants.

In 2012, she relocated to Willmar, Minnesota, to be near Sharon and Mike. She lived independently, until her heart attack in February, and participated in many of the activities at Sunrise Village; always being of service. She was a faithful servant of God and hymns were her favorite music.

She was preceded in death by her husband; parents; brothers, Wallace and William; and sister Mary. Her ashes will be interred, with Ray, at Calvary Cemetery in Livingston, Montana, this summer. Family and friends will be invited to celebrate her life. She is survived by her daughters; sons-in-law; grandson, Joe (Nicole) Hawe; bonus granddaughters, Jessie Fassett and Tabetha Cornell; sister, Norma King; great grandchildren, McKoy, Gibson, and Aubrie Hawe, and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and sisters-in-law.

She was extremely moved by all the cards and letters she received during her convalescence and left this life feeling loved.

If you’d like to offer a memorial in Shirley’s name, please do so in your community.
