Shirley E. Raponi, 82, of Fulton, passed away Friday, April 3, 2020. Shirley was born in Minetto to Andrew and Stella Fenske and was a life resident of Fulton. She was a hard working woman her entire life, raising her children as a single parent until she met her loving husband Alex. She was known for having a giving heart, doing what she could for others without considering her own needs. Shirley was very grateful and proud of her many years of employment at Sealright/Huhtamaki retiring after 42 years of service.
After the passing of her husband Alex, Shirley reentered the workforce. She found great pleasure working at Springside at Seneca Hill for 14 years, where she developed new friendships and enjoyed being there for the residents.
Shirley is survived by her children, Sandra (Harold) Walsh and Scott (Amy) Dunham; her step-children, Kim Cole, Renee Donhauser, Rhonda Raponi and Gale Raponi; several grandchildren and great grandchildren. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Alexander Raponi and by her brother, Glenn Fenske.
The family would like to acknowledge her granddaughter, Siobhan Kitts and great granddaughter, Grace, for all their loving care given during Grammy’s illness.
There are no calling hours. Private graveside services will be held in St. Mary’s Cemetery in Fulton.
