Shirley M. Eaton

CONNEAUT — Shirley M. Eaton, age 88, of Conneaut, Ohio, passed away peacefully Saturday morning, March 16, 2013, at the Villa at the Lake.

Born May 25, 1924, in Monoca, Pa., the daughter of the late Herman Alex and Edna Alice (Finch) Alstrom. Shirley was a graduate of Rowe High School. She married James Gibson in 1944.

Shirley married her second husband Harry in 1961, and together they owned and operated Eaton’s Flower Shop on Broad Street for many years. Upon Harry’s retirement, she followed her dream and opened it up as a dress shop, “Cheryl’s Boutique.” In her later years, Shirley worked at the Conneaut Railroad Museum and also served for many years on the board. In her spare time, she enjoyed reading, playing BINGO and Yahtzee, playing with her cats, and spending time with her grandchildren.

Shirley is survived by her daughter, Nancy (Ted) Grubke of Conneaut; four step-children; and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her first husband, James Gibson on April 18, 1956; her second husband, Harry Eaton Sr. on Oct. 6, 1996; two sisters; and a brother.

At her request, there will be no calling hours or services. A private graveside service will be held at the convenience of the family.

Should friends desire, memorial contributions in her name may be directed to the Conneaut Food Pantry. THOMPSON-SMITH-NESBITT FUNERAL HOME, 345 Main St., Conneaut, is handling arrangements.

The family would like to extend sincere appreciation to the hospice team and staff at the Villa at the Lake for all their help and support with Shirley.
