Shirley Secula-Grilz, 84, of Merrimack passed away on November 20, 2019 at the Arbors in Bedford, NH after many months of declining health. Shirley forged a courageous battle against dementia, a very difficult disease, until the very end.
Shirley was born in Scranton, PA on April 24, 1935. She graduated high school from Scranton Tech in Scranton, PA. She went on to get her nursing degree after raising two children. Shirley worked as a home healthcare nurse for several years and was a dedicated care giver. She will be remembered for her passion to improve her patience’s quality of life through kindness, laughter and most of all love.
Shirley loved cooking big meals and spending time with her family, especially the joy of her life, her beautiful granddaughter, Kasea. She enjoyed going out to dinner, dancing and just spending time with her devoted and loving partner, Charles Hall, who always showed her love and compassion.
Shirley is survived by her two children, Michael Secula and his wife MaryEllen, Kimberly Buckner and her husband, Kent plus her granddaughter Kasea Buckner, a brother and sister-in-law, two sisters, nieces, nephews and Charles Hall who was forever by her side.
A service will be held at St. James United Methodist Church in Merrimack on Monday, November 25th, 2019 at 11 AM. Shirley will be laid to rest in Moscow, PA at a future date.
