Obituary for Shirley Lee Ellenberger

Shirley Lee Ellenberger, 84, journeyed to her heavenly home on December 31, 2019. She was born on June 10, 1935 to parents Amos Jesse and Laura Bell (Sterrett) Jenkins in Kansas City, Kansas. It was in Kansas City where Shirley spent her childhood and graduated from Wyandotte High School.
Shirley married the love of her life, Albert Marcus Ellenberger, and to their union, two children were born. Albert and Shirley lived in the home that they built together in Blue Springs, MO for over 30 years. Shirley took pride in decorating their house and making it into a home, filling it with warmth and love. Some of the best memories were made sitting around the kitchen table conversing and drinking coffee. Family events and holidays were always the highlight of Shirley’s life. She was a very caring mother and grandmother and loved her family immensely. As the spiritual leader of her family, she shared the love of God with them as well and was always putting others first.
Shirley is preceded in death by her parents, Amos and Laura Jenkins; sister, Beverly Fraser; and brother, John Jenkins.
She is survived by her loving husband, Albert Ellenberger; her sister, Pat Turley; two sons, Mark (Maureen) Ellenberger and David (Vivian) Ellenberger; and two grandchildren Laura Ellenberger and David Thomas.
