Shirley Mae Jones Hausladen was born to Charles E. and Margaret E. Jones on Dec. 10, 1940, in Grangeville, Idaho, passed away Dec. 18, 2010, in Cottonwood, Idaho.
She had six brothers and two sisters. The Jones kids spent the majority of their youth growing up in Fenn, Idaho. Shirley graduated from Grangeville High School in 1959.
While waitressing at the Shamrock Cafe she met her future husband, Frank W. Hausladen.
She married Frank on Dec. 28, 1959, in Lewiston, Idaho. They would have celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary. They lived in Moscow, Idaho, until Frank graduated from the University of Idaho in 1961. While there they had their first daughter, Teresa.
After Frank graduated, the family moved to Grangeville. Here they added two more daughters, Tammy and Traci. After their third daughter was born they lived for a short time in San Francisco, Calif., before moving back to Grangeville. Here they added two boys to the group, Bill and Brett.
While raising their five children, Shirley worked various jobs in the area, including at her in-laws business in Grangeville, the Shamrock Cafe.
In May of 1980 Shirley and Frank purchased the Fenn Store and moved the four remaining children at home to Fenn. She spent many long hours running the store and post office until it closed in 1992. She and Frank then managed The Depot for three years before retiring. Retirement was interrupted a couple of times so they could manage the Grangeville golf course from April to October for those years.
She is survived by her husband, Frank of Fenn; children, Teresa of Boise, Idaho; Tammy Cochran (Ken) of Boise, Idaho; Traci Gilchrist (Robin) of Draper, Utah; Bill of Careywood, Idaho; Brett (Renita) of Grangeville; 11 grandchildren and two great-grandsons; brothers, Don (Marie) Jones of Spokane, Wash., Elmer (Bobbie) Jones of Enumclaw, Wash., Jim (Patti) Jones of Cheyenne, Wyo., Richard (Terry) Jones of Tampa, Fla.; and sister, Donna Hess (Deane) of Weiser, Idaho.
