Shirley Eileen Nagel was born December 24, 1934, to Francis and Eileen (Murphy) Agnitsch in Pipestone, MN.

Shirley attended the School of Nursing at St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen, SD. After graduating, she married the love of her life, Bob Nagel. To this union, they had three daughters.

Shirley dedicated her life to nursing, friends, and family. She loved her “lunch bunch” and Jami called her “Shirley the Shark” as it was almost impossible to beat her at a hand of Spite and Malice. Shirley cherished her time with her great-granddaughter, Tatum, who called her GiGi.

Shirley is survived by her daughter, Michele (Ernest) Weyer of Greely, CO and their children, Christena (David) Isakson and Guy (Jacque) Weyer; daughter, Jami Peterson of Mitchell and her children, Skyler (Elise) Peterson, Talon and Tatum (Jacob Rosemore) Peterson, and Jamin Peterson; siblings, Tom (Diane) Agnitsch of Aberdeen, SD, Mike (Diane) Agnitsch of Omaha, NE, Rita (Tom) Gates of Mitchell, SD, and Rick Agntisch of Mitchell SD.

She was preceded in death by her love, Bob of 64 years; a daughter in infancy, Veronica; grandson, Robert; her parents; and brother, Joseph.
