Chase, Shirley Ann

Bay City, Michigan



Our loving mother, grandmother, and sister passed away unexpectedly in the late morning hours of Wednesday, August 22, 2018. Age 77 years. Shirley was born in Bay City, Michigan on March 12, 1941 to the late Donald and Angeline (Gardener) Chase. She has resided in Bay City for her entire life. Shirley retired from Meijer and her family will always remember her as the “Pizza Lady”. In her free time she loved to play bingo, shuffleboard, and cards. At the end of the day the most important thing to her was always her family.


Left to cherish her memories are four children, Susan Wright (Ray Winchell), Jim (Donna) Lorenz, Donald (Deirdre) Lorenz, and Jeff Lorenz (Kim Hadd); several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; two sisters, Bev Gottschiling and Connie Birch; one brother, Ken (Kathy) Chase. She is welcomed into Heavens Gates by her parents; and two brother-in-law’s, Tom Birch and Jack Gottschiling.


Visitation will take place at the Squires Funeral Chapel on Saturday, August 25, 2018 from 2:00 until the time of the service. The funeral service will take place Saturday at 5:00 p.m. here at the funeral home. Officiating will be Rev. Charles Campbell. At the request of Shirley, cremation will take place following the funeral service. In lieu of flowers, those planning an expression of sympathy may wish to consider memorials to the “Wishes of the Family”.
