In our hearts: Shirley Ann Kenoyer

Kenoyer Shirley

Shirley Ann (Steen) Kenoyer, 84, of Rapid City, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend passed gently away May 30, 2021, after 3 months in hospice. Shirley is the mother of Deb Kjerstad, Dakota Conference Director of Leadership Development.

She worked as a school nurse, and then over 20 years at the Sturgis Community Nursing Home. Her greatest joy came in caring for others.  Shirley was involved in numerous organizations around Sturgis- including Beta Sigma Phi, Western Dakota Antique Club, Sewing and Quilting Clubs, and United Methodist Women-she was never one to sit still. To Shirley, living a life as a servant of God was a privilege.

A celebration of her life will be 11:00 a.m. at Sturgis United Methodist Church on Friday, June 4, 2021, with visitation to begin at 10:00 a.m. A memorial has been established to the United Methodist Church of Sturgis.
