Obituary for Shirley Mae Chalfant

Shirley Mae Chalfant was born on February 19, 1928, in Audubon County. She grew up in Audubon and loved roller skating and dancing. She graduated from Audubon High School in 1946. 
After graduation, she moved to Des Moines to attend beauty school. Shirley returned to Audubon and worked at Pete and Ann Petersen’s barber and beauty shop. On October 14, 1950, Shirley married Roger Chalfant at the Little Brown Church and moved to Guthrie Center. After they were married, she worked as a beautician for Greta Clark Kunkle in Guthrie Center.  

On May 11, 1954, their son, Randy, was born. They bought and moved to the family farm where Shirley enjoyed having a large vegetable garden, many beautiful flowers, and a German Shepherd dog. She worked for many years at the Red Door clothing store and also at Dowd Drug.

Shirley was a member of the Seely Creek Club and she and Roger were in a card club group for many years. Her homemade dinner rolls were a beloved favorite at every holiday gathering. They enjoyed attending school events, activities and anything involving their granddaughters. She was thrilled to become a great-grandmother.
They moved from the farm to Guthrie Center where they lived until July 2019, when they moved into the New Homestead where she resided until her death on August 8, 2019.

Shirley is survived by her husband, Roger, daughter-in-law, Colleen, granddaughters, Stephanie (Hugo) Ayala of Brea, California and Sara (Randy) Blockhus of Altoona, Iowa. She also has 3 great-grandchildren, Lauren and Vera Ayala, and Oliver Blockhus; 6 nieces and nephews. Preceding her in death were her mother, Anna Petersen; her son, Randy; her brothers and sisters-in-law, Donald and Vera Chalfant and Melvin and Irma Chalfant.
