Shirley Hunt Staheli passed away peacefully Wednesday, Sept. 8, 2021, 11 days short of her 94th birthday. She was born Sept. 19, 1927, to Jonathan Alma and Eliza Mignonette Bauer Hunt.

Shirley grew up in Enterprise, and as a 14-year-old beauty, caught the eye of a good-looking cowboy, Kenneth Price Staheli. They were married on June 7, 1945, in the St. George Temple. They were blessed with five children: Merril K., Charlotte, Shawna, Ross H., and Candace Marie.
