It is with great sorrow we announce the passing of Shirley Beyer on March 13, 2021. She is survived by her husband of 57 years, Marv Beyer, daughters Tracy and Tammy, their husbands Mike and Steve, sister Carole Wilson, and grandchildren Nicholas and Brigette.
Shirley was born in Mott, North Dakota to Henry and Helen Roemmich on April 17, 1941. As a teenager she moved to San Diego. She graduated from Crawford High School in 1959 and earned a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from San Diego State University in 1963. She married her college sweetheart in 1963 and they created a home and family in San Diego. Shirley worked as a school secretary for San Diego Unified School District until she retired in 1998. In the year 2000 she and Marv moved to Julian. They found a house on a beautiful piece of land in Pine Hills and both she and Marv took a lot of pride in creating a beautiful home. Shirley enjoyed being active in her community and volunteered for her church and the Julian Woman’s Club, writing both their newsletters for more than 10 years.
Those who knew Shirley knew she liked nothing more than to be camping with her husband and family. Some of her very favorite places to camp were Yosemite and Yellowstone National Park, and Anza Borrego State Park. She loved hiking, bicycling, sitting around a campfire, and creating amazing dinners in their motorhome.
Shirley was kind, loving, smart and had the perfect amount of spice to make those around her laugh. She put effort and took pride in everything she did, and made everything around her beautiful, neat, and orderly. She deeply loved her family, and her passing leaves a great emptiness in all of us. She left us much too soon, but she loved her life and lived it to the fullest.
