Sept. 28, 1951 – March 29, 2019
Shirley L. (Maulding) Perrine passed away at her home on March 29. Shirley spent her life in the Silverton Hills that she loved so dearly. Parents Darrell and Ruby Maulding brought Shirley into the world Sept. 28, 1951. Her early years she spent adventuring around the family farm with her older brother Dennis. She attended Silver Crest School and Silverton High School, graduating in 1969. In the summer, after graduation, she toured Europe for three weeks with her aunt and uncle, learning what the world was like.
Julia takes a turn with her father Mathew Bucchiet, while Thomas Bucchiet and Caitlin David look on at last year’s Fun Dance at the Pacific Northwest Teen Square Dance Festival.
With five teams competing in this year’s competition – two from Canada and three from Washington state – Karyn anticipates an attendance of over 600 people.
“I encourage people to come and support the kids,” she urged. “These kids have put a huge amount of work into it. And they’re very cute on the floor.”
Shirley married Pete Perrine in October 1969 and began work at Bookkeepers Business Service. In 1974 son Peter was born and Shirley took an office job at Hupp’s Drakes Crossing Nursery to be near home and the additional responsibilities of a mother. In 1980 daughter Lindsey was born. Once the children were grown she worked at Silverton High School for several years before retiring to help take care of grandchildren.
Shirley enjoyed horseback riding with her friends in her early years, the children’s school activities, her dogs, taking the family to Disneyland, Christmas and birthdays with the family, trips to the coast for clamming, crabbing, fishing and especially picnics. Shirley loved chocolate! Shirley is survived by her husband Pete; son Pete Jr. (Christi); grandchildren Luke and Ella; daughter Lindsey Boatner (Josh); grandchildren Brooke and Joey; mother Ruby Maulding; brother Dennis Maulding; sister Janet Maulding; brother John Maulding; sister Joni Yarnell and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins. Shirley was always taking on more than her share of responsibility and cared very deeply for her family. She is greatly missed! Serving the family is Unger Funeral Chapel of Silverton.
