Obituary for Shirley Chesen

Chesen, Shirley (nee Rose)

Shirley Mary Chesen (nee Rose), 95, passed away on August 17th, 2021 in her home in Tinley Park surrounded by family. Shirley was born on December 27th, 1925 and was raised in Chicago with her parents and five siblings. She married the late Gene on February 11th, 1950 and together raised four girls, Donna, Nancy, Diane and Cheryl. Many events shaped her life (Great depression, World War II and the Blizzard of ’67 to name a few) and she had a story to tell about it! Shirley enjoyed socializing and enjoyed get-togethers of any kind. She showed a genuine interest in other people’s lives. Shirley spent many hours playing games and cards with friends and family. She played by the rules and found immense joy in winning!

Shirley is survived by her four daughters, Donna (Del) Kolacki, Nancy (the late Patrick “Andy”) Devine, Diane (the late Ron) Babczak and Cheryl Chesen. Grandmother to Kelly (Ryan) Rickert, Kristy (Kevin) Allen, Patrick Devine, Lindsey Conner and Cassie Babczak. Great-grandmother to Connor, Justin, Emily, Landon, Cayden, Addison, Brady and Chloe. Fond aunt, great aunt, cousin, neighbor and friend to many. Preceded in death by her parents, Jim and Nellie Rose, brother Jim Rose, sisters Marian (Joe) Mazurek, Helen (John) Melody, Marge (Bob) Davidson, and Dorothy (Rich) Zander.
