Shirley A. Badger

February 17, 1937 — February 11, 2018

Shirley A. Badger, nee Fain, 80, of Waterloo, IL, died February 11, 2018, in Waterloo, IL. She was born February 17, 1937, in Wheelwright, KY.

She is survived by her daughter Dawn (Adam) Sweatt; grandchildren Kylie, Griffin, and Reid Sweatt; sister-in-law; nieces; and nephews.

Shirley is preceded in death by her husband Oliver B. Badger; sisters and brothers, parents William and Eva (nee Evans) Fain.

Shirley took joy in caring for others. Her love for children led her to foster children and serve as a host mom for The Belizean Crippled Children during her retirement years. She loved caring for them and taking them to Shriners Hospital for treatment.  She believed serving others was a gift from God. Shirley had no formal music training but loved to sing and could play almost any instrument.  Another gift God gave her was serving others thru cooking. She could combine flavors in a special way.  She cooked to comfort others with her special recipes.

Shirley loved her friends and family. She was generous to those around her. She was a member of Concord Presbyterian Church PCA. Her faith in Jesus Christ was her greatest treasure - the source of her grateful and joyful spirit.

God gave her joy and He gives us joy in sorrow. We can sing though our tears.
