Shirley Detwiler

May 12, 1929 — June 9, 2020


Shirley Elaine “Hon” Detwiler, 91, went home to be with the Lord, June 9, 2020. Born May 12, 1929 in Cameron County, Pennsylvania, she was the daughter of the late Mack and Mildred Detwiler.

An area resident most of her life, she attended Akron Springfield Assembly of God. Her faith never wavered and each time she counted her blessings, her love for the Lord grew. She believed that under His wing, God gave her the strength through the trials and storms of her life. For many years, Shirley worked as a bookkeeper for her brothers, at BG&R Construction. She loved animals, especially cats, and the love and joy they brought to the lives of so many. She was a firm believer that no animal should be mistreated and that they all deserved a safe and loving home.

In addition to her parents, she was also preceded in death by her brothers, Donald "Jack" and Ronald "Ken" Detwiler; sisters, Lois Gordon and Joanne Allgood.

Shirley will be missed and is survived by her loving family; brothers, Bill Detwiler, Jerry (Diane) Detwiler, Barry (Mary) Detwiler; brother-in-law, Bill Allgood; sister-in-law, Sherry Detwiler; and many cherished nieces and nephews.
