While surrounded by her loving family, Shirley Ann Eisnaugle, age 76, of Jackson (formerly of Wellston, Ohio), went home to be with Jesus on Saturday, July 31. She was born on Mar. 2, 1945, to the late Norma Jean Goodwin. Besides her mother, she was preceded in death by her brother, Gomer “Bud” Howe, and her first husband, James Fridenmaker.
She is survived by her husband of 22 years, Steve Eisnaugle; her four children, James Fridenmaker of Portsmouth, Bev (David) Carpenter of Hamden, Deborah (Beckie) Mitchell of Springhill, Nova Scotia, and John Fridenmaker of Knoxville, Tennessee; her three grandchildren: Nathan (Amy) Carpenter of Franklin, Tennessee, Josh Carpenter of Hamden and Meghan Carpenter of Hamden; several nieces, nephews and friends that loved her dearly.
Shirley never met a stranger. An encourager by nature, she was always supporting and uplifting those around her. She was an STNA at Edgewood Manor of Wellston for 33 years, caring for each resident as if they were a part of her own family. Some of her hobbies included spending time with her family, playing with her dogs, traveling, sewing, making quilts and attending services at the Good Shepherd Wesleyan Church in Jackson, Ohio.
We’d like to thank her wonderful medical team in the ICU at the Wexner Medical Center at the Ohio State University. Without them, her peaceful transition from this life to eternity would not have been possible.
The calling hours for Shirley Eisnaugle will be from 4 p.m. – 8 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 4, with additional calling hours on Thursday, Aug. 5, from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. The celebration of life service will begin at 1 p.m. Burial will follow at Fairmount Cemetery.
