Shirley Ann Rickard
Aug. 29, 1928 – May 3, 2020
Shirley, 91, passed away peacefully at Brookdale Senior Living, where she had resided since August 2019.
She was born and raised in Greeley and a proud member of the “Greeley Pioneers”.
She married William John Rickard on December 31, 1947, upon his return from serving our country in WWII. They were married 63 years before William passed away in 2011.
Shirley enjoyed traveling, dancing and playing games – Bridge, Bunco, and Bingo. She also enjoyed attending programs at the Candlelight Theatre and UCCC, where she was an annual member. She was active in The Lady’s Auxiliary, VFW, Mason’s, and Elks Lodge.
She worked serval jobs throughout her life, but would always describe herself as a “salesperson”.
Shirley is survived by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren: Rick Rickard, Darrick (Lisa) Rickard and three children, Kim (Neil) Hefty, Scott (Tracey) Rickard and son Jackson.

I was so sorry to hear about Shirley's passing. Shirley was the last surviving member of my parents' bridge club. What fun that group had getting together and playing bridge every month...for probably 40 years! She was a dear friend and I will never forget how supportive she was to my mother when my dad passed away. She truly was a blessing to her. I'm so sorry our luncheon never took place but am also so glad I was able to visit last year while she was still at home. RIP dear Shirley. Laura (Neece) Clark.

So sorry to hear of Shirley's passing. Shirley was my tap dance instructor when I was a little girl. I had a dancing partner and we performed at the "Stars of Tomorrow" talent show. I fell in love with Shirley that year and her memory will always be in my heart. She was a wonderful person.
