Shirley (Bradley) Wren

June 14, 1941 ~ May 8, 2014

Shirley Wren, 72 years of age, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, May 8, 2014. Shirley was born on June 14, 1941, to Arthur and Virginia Bradley at Cassville, MO. After graduating from Cassville High School, she went to work for Western Electric in Kansas City, MO. While in Kansas City, she met, fell in love with and married her husband, Rex. Shirley and Rex were married for 53 years. Together, they raised two sons, Brad and Terry. In 1961, Shirley and Rex made their way to the Wenatchee area, where Rex went to work for Alcoa. Shirley worked in the fruit industry. Together, Rex and Shirley bought eight acres and turned it into a cherry orchard. Shirley loved to provide toys for the children at Cashmere Baptist Church, quilting, working with her hands and watching the Seattle Mariners with Rex. Shirley also loved the Lord. She will be missed by her family and friends, but those who knew her, know that she is in heaven.

Shirley is survived by her husband, Rex Wren; son, Terry Wren; and sister, Wilma Brisco. She was preceded in death by her son, Brad; and her three sisters.
