Shirley "Shirl"'s Story
Shirley Ann "Shirl" Oill, 82, of Grove City passed away peacefully Wednesday morning (Oct. 4, 2017) in Grove Manor, Grove City, from complications of Parkinson's disease. She was 82.
Shirl was born Oct. 20, 1934, in Mundy's Corner, Cambria County, to D. Roland and Blanche (Mellott) White.
She married Oliver "Ollie" Isaac Oill on Dec. 3, 1955; he survives at home.
She attended Ebensburg-Cambria High School.
Shirl was employed for 20 years by the Grove City Area School District, where she served as food service director for several years before her retirement in 1997. After retiring, she and Ollie enjoyed collecting Beanie Babies and going to auctions.
She was a longtime member of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, Grove City, where she was active with the church women.
Throughout her life, Shirl treasured times spent with family and friends and was known for being a wonderful hostess and storyteller. The motto "Live, Laugh, Love" describes perfectly how she approached life. Even as Shirl battled problems with her health the past several months, her keen sense of humor remained alive and well.
In addition to her husband, Ollie, she is survived by: two children, Karen Oill Moury, Harrisburg, and Don Oill, Grove City; two grandsons, Clinton Moury and wife Jary, Harrisburg, and Sean Moury, Dongguan, China; two brothers, Edward White and wife Dorothy, Johnstown, Pa., and William White and wife Connie, Linden, Mich.; and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
Her parents, five sisters and two brothers preceded Shirl in death.
