Happy 80th Birthday Shirley Pitsch


23C B-day PitschHappy Birthday Shirley Pitsch… Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great Grandmother, Friend, Businesswoman, Mejier Store Greeter…. On June 12, Shirley (Brooks) Pitsch will be celebrating her 80th Birthday. This wonderful milestone is celebrated the same year as her 60th wedding anniversary to her husband Albert. Shirley and Al raised 11 children on their fruit farm in Rockford. With grandchildren and great grandchildren, the family now numbers over 50! The couple has served the community with various complimentary businesses from a cyder mill and shop in Squires Street, to retail and wholesale fruit packing and sales in Rockford and Sparta. Today Miss Shirley or “the penny lady”, as she’s known to the children of Cedar Springs, has worked as a greeter at the Cedar Springs Meijer for five years. Since the store opened, she has offered pennies to the children for rides on Sandy, the pony at Meijer. To all who walk through the store doors, she offers a sincere welcome and even kind words and a hug to those who need it. Shirley is endeared by all who have had the pleasure to have been hugged by her throughout her life of caring for those around her. Her family is her foundation. In addition to her partnership with her husband in running the family’s fruit businesses,Shirley has been a successful business woman. This includes being the first woman ever to be appointed by the governor to serve as a member of the Michigan Apple Committee. Anyone who would like to offer their best wishes to Shirley are invited to leave her a message at HappyBirthdayShirleyP@gmail.com (The Post printed a column by Pastor, Tom Holloway, in 2011 where he expressed his admiration for Shirley.)
