Shirley Marie Griffith

August 16, 2022


Shirley Marie Griffith (Younker), 79 passed away Tuesday, August 16, 2022 in Hinsdale, Illinois after complications from a stroke.

Shirley was born on March 17, 1943, in Harvey Illinois. She was the daughter of Marie and Leslie Younker. 

In her early years after high school, she was a model for hair shows and enjoyed live music. She was a big fan of Elvis Presley and all his music.  

Professionally, she worked for various companies over her career. One that she enjoyed the most and thrived in was running a variety of social services programs for the City of Mount Prospect.  Being of service was always a great source of joy for her. She will be remembered for her sense of humor and love for great conversations. 

She was a dedicated mother to her two boys Steven and Matthew. Grit is word that best described her, many times working multiple jobs. She was committed that both her boys got a college education and sacrificed many of her own needs to make sure that happened, which it did. 

She loved gardening and baking. One of her greatest joys was spending time with her Grandchildren, Allyson and Kaitlyn Griffith. She spent many afternoons teaching them how to bake. 

A Memorial Gathering will be held on Sunday, September 11, 2022, from 1:00 to 4:00 PM at Brust Funeral Home, 135 S. Main Street, Lombard.
