Ann Shea Obituary

     Ann Shea, age 88, of Harrisburg, passed away at 4:30 PM, Monday, October 23, 2023 at Deaconess Gateway Hospital, surrounded by her family.

     Ann was born on March 31, 1935 in Harrisburg, Illinois to the late Joe and Christina (Thompson) Evans.  On December 23, 1953 she married Billy Lee Shea and he preceded her in death on October 20, 2011.  Ann was a member of Dorrisville Social Brethren Church.  She was a long time Cubs fan and loved watching them play on tv.  Ann enjoyed her “girl’s days out” with her family.  She enjoyed coloring pictures on her phone and listening to the Baptist Hour in the morning.  Ann loved going to church and listening to live gospel music.  Ann’s favorite activity was sitting on the porch watching the kids play on the playground across the street.  She enjoyed accumulating recipes.  Ann was big hearted, fun loving and she enjoyed life.  Ann had a great sense of humor and it was contagious; her family would get tickled at her getting tickled at something.
