Obituary of Shirley Thram

Shirley Thram was born on April 12, 1930, in Charleston Township to Edward and Henrietta (Pape) Leopold. She was united in marriage to Gordon Thram on May 6, 1949, at Zion Lutheran Parsonage in Sanborn. Following marriage, the couple farmed in Charleston Township until retiring in 1982, when they moved into Lamberton. Shirley was a member of Our Savior’s Lutheran Church and served on the Altar Guild and the funeral and quilting group. Shirley enjoyed crafts, crocheting, reading, playing cards and bingo. She had a real green thumb and many flowers to show that. Shirley loved spending time with her family. She was a great host; her wonderful meals and baking are remembered fondly by all her family along with her infectious giggle and smile she displayed when together. Surviving Shirley are her daughter Sue Thram (Keith Watson) of Sleepy Eye; daughter-in-law Debra Thram of Lamberton; son-in-law Dale Vertanen of Lakeville; grandchildren - Jason Thram, Justin Thram (Courtney), Britney Daugs (Paul), Sam Vertanen (Erica), Megan Heintz, and Molly Lange (Ethan); great grandchildren - Jolissa, Alysa, Abby, Finley, Titus, Kyah, Silas, Bennett, Jude, Truett, Landry, and Logan; great great grandchildren - Koneko, Braxton, and Cadance; and several nieces and nephews. Shirley was preceded in death by her husband Gordon; son Steven; daughter Karen; grandchildren Jackie and Jeramy; and her brothers and sisters.
