Shirley Stone

Shirley Stone passed away after a long illness on February 28, 2018, under the loving care of Lassen Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, which had been her home for the past four years.

She was born on August 9, 1932, in Oakland, California, and moved to Lassen County with her family at the age of three, where she resided for the rest of her life. She married the love of her life, Bob, in 1956, and together they raised three children.

Shirley worked for the Susanville School District for over twenty years in many capacities before retiring in 1992 as business manager for the district. She was a long-time, dedicated member of the Susanville Soroptimist Club, remaining active in the club for as long as she could, and was a member of the Board of Directors for Lassen County Federal Credit Union for many years. After retirement, she enjoyed many RV trips with Bob, many adventures with friends and family, and lots of time with her grandchildren.

She loved to crochet and knit, was an avid gardener arid reader, and cooking holiday/birthday meals for her family was one of her favorite things to do.

Shirley was preceded in death by her husband Bob and son Pat. She is survived by her son Jeff Stone (Shelly}, daughter Laura Dennis (Roby}, grandchildren Amy Shepherd (Phil}, Jeff Stone, Garrett Stone, Jessica Henry (Tim}, Jane Dennis, and Derek Dennis, great-grandchildren Connor, Seth, Nora, and Corbin, and numerous nieces and nephews.

Services will be held on Saturday, March 17, 2018, at 11:00 am at Walton’s Colonial Chapel.


Why Pre-plan?

With pre-planning, families find comfort in knowing that the funeral reflects what their loved one wanted. It also gives them peace of mind to not have to make important decisions at a stressful time. Click here to visit Walton’s Funeral Home
