Obituary: Shirley Sebranek, 90

Shirley Sebranek passed away peacefully Thursday, February 1, 2024, at Fairhaven Retirement
Community in Whitewater, Wisconsin.

She was born on December 15, 1933, in Wiota Wisconsin, daughter of Orlean and Orpha Wahl. Graduated from South Wayne High School. She married Adolph Sebranek on August 19, 1956. They lived most of their lives and raised their family in Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. Shirley worked at the Pharmacy in Fort Atkinson for several years before it closed and then 27 years at Walmart in Whitewater in the clothing department.

She loved spending time with family and friends, especially with the grandchildren (playing games and spoiling them); as well as going to coffee with friends, bowling when younger, going out for dinner on Fridays, watching sitcoms (Raymond, Fraser, and the Golden Girls) and reality shows (The Bachelor, Dancing with the Stars, and Survivor), and going to church and brunch on Sundays.

She is survived by children Alan Sebranek, Ron (Dawn) Sebranek; grandchildren Jacob, Dayne, Christa, Lukas, Trevor, and Eli; sister in-laws Nancy Sebranek and Sheryl Sebranek; and many nieces, nephews, and cousins. She was preceded in death by husband Adolph Sebranek, daughter Barbara, parents Orlean and Orpha Wahl, brothers Roger (Ruthie) Wahl and Sammy (Vivian) Wahl, sister in-law Bessie (Joe) Fawcett, brother in-law Duane Sebranek, brother in-law Maynard Sebranek, and god-daughter Dawn Wirth.

Shirley just loved everyone. Always smiling and willing to help if she could. She will be deeply missed.
