Shirley Peel

February 27, 1936 — October 20, 2023

Shirley Peel passed away peacefully at home surrounded by family on October 20, 2023, at the age of 87, in Eagle Mountain, Utah.

She was born February 27, 1936, in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada to Neil and Emma Hogenson. They named her Shirley, just Shirley. She always wanted a middle name, and in her words, she said she felt cheated that she didn't have one, but if she had, she would have chosen Marie.

She grew up on a farm in Stirling, Alberta, Canada and was always a farm girl at heart.

While attending BYHigh in Provo, Utah, she met Dale William (Bill) Peel who was attending BYU on a football scholarship. After graduating high school, and at the age of 18, she married Bill in the St. George Temple on June 12, 1954.

She was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and was so grateful for the church and her testimony of the truthfulness of it to sustain her through the years that followed her divorce after 9 years of marriage while she raised 4 children on her own. Her faith was such a big part of who she was, and a large part of the legacy she leaves behind.

Most of all she loved her family and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as grandma. She will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts.

Shirley is survived by her children, Kim Mitchell, Lorie (Don) Atherton, Richard (Heidi) Peel, Shari (Brent) Nordblad; 12 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandson.

She was preceded in death by her daughter, Tammy Lynn; 3 grandsons, Donald Chad Atherton, Travis Ray Mitchell, Jesse William Mitchell; and her son-in-law, Timothy Ray Mitchell.
