BOLLMAN: Shirley Anne Patricia passed away peacefully with family by her side on the Palliative Care Unit at Brandon Regional Health Center on Friday, March 26, 2021. Shirley was born to Helen and Russell Couch in Rivers, MB on September 28, 1934. She grew up learning farming life in the rural community of Rapid City. This life nurtured her love of outdoors, nature and animals. She attended Normal School and taught school for a few years. She married “the boy down the road” in 1953. Her first, only, and last love of her life was Ken Bollman. Together they raised five daughters. Through the years Shirley enjoyed the activities involving the family and in later years those of grandchildren. Shirley always found time to volunteer at various organizations. She seldom asked for favors but gave them away on a regular basis. Many memories were made around activities at “the lake”. She learned to kayak and loved the early morning waters. In 2012 Shirley chose to move her summers to a cabin in Minnedosa. There was never any chore that was more important than an opportunity to go fishing, fill the birdfeeders, be with the grandkids at the beach or have a visit. Shirley was predeceased by her husband Ken, daughter Norma, parents Helen and Russell Couch, infant brother Keith, sisters Cybel Esplin (John) and Lorraine Andrew (Cecil); sisters-in-law Isabel Paddock (Frank), Lillian Johnston (George) Irma Rogers (Bert) and recently, son-in-law Vernon Appleyard. Shirley is survived by four loving daughters Wendy Smith (Don), Lillian Bollman, Beverley Kreller (Doug), and Darlene Appleyard; grandchildren Tricia Hercina (Calvin), Lindsay Cowling (Warren), Dallas Kreller (Krista), Whitney Kreller-Lamont (Ryan), Terry Kreller (Addy), Tara Rogers (Tyler), Curtis Jenkins and Tyler Jenkins (Maria). Shirley will be lovingly remembered by her great grandchildren Tyra and Makenna Hercina, Jayden Kreller, Beau and Olivia Cowling, Finley and Harper Lamont. The family invites you to view the Celebration of Shirley’s Life remotely on Saturday, April 3, 2021 at 1:00 p.m. – a link will appear approximately 5 minutes prior to the service on Shirley’s memorial page at Donations in memory of Shirley may be made to a charity of one’s choice.
