A Loving Wife, Mother and Grandmother -

Shirley Ann (Vogelsong) Stoltz, age 58, of Mechanicsburg, and formerly of Carlisle, passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at UPMC Pinnacle West Shore Hospital, on Monday, August 8, 2022.  Shirley was born on Thursday, December 12, 1963, in Mechanicsburg to Helen Marie (Zimmerman) Vogelsong and the late Lester Lawrence Vogelsong.  In addition to her father, Shirley is preceded in death by her brother, Kenneth “Kenny” Vogelsong and her three sisters, Vickie Crone, Barbara “Barb” Riordan and Sharon Eisenhour.

Shirley graduated from Cumberland Valley High School as part of the class of 1981 and went on to become a licensed practical nurse.  She worked as a licensed practical nurse for HealthSouth in Mechanicsburg and for 15 years for Hospice of Central Pennsylvania.  Shirley enjoyed crochet, tending to her garden and paddling on the rivers and streams in a kayak.  She also loved going to the beach and watching movies at home.  Shirley’s kind and caring spirit was evident in her ministry of caring for the homeless.  Her greatest joy came from the time she spent with her family.  Shirley truly loved spending time with her family, playing card games and spoiling her grandchildren.  Shirley will be missed greatly by her family and friends.
