Shirley Ann Todd, 75, loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, passed away on May 11, at Kindred Care Hospital in Denver after a lengthy illness. She will be greatly missed by family and friends. She thoughtfully touched so many lives and was our sun. She was a very strong woman and a cancer survivor.

Shirley was born to Roy and Jewell Brown in Holtville, Calif. She grew up in the Imperial Valley in California, where she met her husband, John Todd, on a blind date. They were married on Feb. 3, 1952, in Yuma, Ariz., after a short courtship. They had a long, loving life that brought three children and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Shirley’s pride and joy was her family and home with all family and friends welcome. She is the reason we all came home. Her hobbies included cooking, crocheting, reading and closely watching her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren grow.

Shirley was preceded in death by her father, Roy Brown, and younger brother, Donald Brown.

She is survived by her husband, John Todd; daughter Vicki (Charles) Todd; son J. Mike Todd; and daughter Donna (Bret Peterson) Deutsch. Grandchildren are Kristine (Dave Enlow) Llacuna, Steven (Carment) Llacuna, Teresa (Caleb) Horton, Mike J. Todd, Alisha Todd, Amanda (Josh) Hernandez and Corby Deutsch. Great-grandchildren are Caton and Miles Llacuna, LeeLand Hernandez with a little brother or sister on the way, and Conner and Aaron Enlow. Shirley’s sister, Winnie (John) Hand and brother Doug (Nancy) Brown also survive.

In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations being made to the University Hospital, P.O. Box 6510, Aurora, CO 80045; Kindred Care Hospital, 1920 High St., Denver, 80218; or the American Cancer Society.

Cremation has taken place in Denver. A celebration of her life will take place at 11 a.m. on Saturday, May 30, at the Rifle Elks Lodge. Lunch will follow.
