Shirley Darlene Estabrooks, 80, passed away peacefully at Boundary Community Hospital Extended Care Facility in Bonners Ferry on November 13, 2018. Shirley's son Luke and daughter-in-law Angie were holding her hand as she passed. Thank-you to Uncle Mike, (Pastor Mike Karnes) who led prayer for Shirley's departure to be peaceful and for eternal life with the Lord. At Shirley's request there will be no service.

Shirley was born on April 28, 1938, in Deadwood, South Dakota, to the late William Faulkner and Marjorie (Hurley) Faulkner. As a young child her family moved to Butte, Montana, where she attended school. Shirley was the third of 12 children.

On July 8, 1956, Shirley married LeRoy Estabrooks in Butte. Together they raised four children.

Shirley enjoyed being a stay-at-home Mom and was happiest when she was surrounded by her grandchildren. During her later years of life, Shirley treasured every moment she could spend with her great-granddaughter Gracie. Shirley also enjoyed going on walks, working on puzzles, volunteering at the Thrift Store and being taken on drives by family and friends.

Shirley was preceded in death by her husband LeRoy, daughter Rickie Estabrooks, parents William and Marjorie Faulkner and sisters Dorothy Craft, Patricia Smith and Marjorie Reed.

Shirley is survived by her son Luke (Angie) Estabrooks, daughter Luanna (Lloyd) Funderburg, son Bodie Estabrooks, grandchildren Jason (Joanna) Funderburg, Julie (Damon) Ziemann, Jenny Funderburg, David, Michael and Eric Estabrooks and numerous great-grandchildren and nieces and nephews.

Thankyou to her caregivers JoAnna Price, Lindy Nieman and neighbors who looked in on her while she was still living at her apartment. Also thank you to Dr. Botkin, nurses, caregivers staff at the Extended Care Facility for the love and care they gave to Shirley.
