Shirley June Pask Amos

MEDINA — Shirley June (Pask) Amos, age 84, passed peacefully from this life at Medina Memorial      Hospital on December 4, 2013, surrounded by her family. She was born on June 3, 1929 to Claude Howard and Anna Geraldine (Schrader) Pask. She spent her childhood in Millville, where she attended the Millville Academy. Continuing her education at Medina High School, she graduated in 1947. Shirley married Bernard William Amos on June 19, 1948, and they resided in the home built by her father, father-in-law and husband for most of their married years together.

Shirley enjoyed life and lived it to the fullest. Her family was always at the center of her life. She made every event special, from church activities to camping trips, and scouting events to birthdays and holidays. Shirley was considered as a "social planner extraordinaire." She began two chapters of the Red Hat Society (Medina and Lady Lake, FL) for whom the "Queen Mother" and her "court" created many wonderful events. She also made sure that "The Gang", a group of seven high school chums, have remained close through the years and planned their yearly get-togethers. An integral part of Shirley's life was her volunteer service, giving countless hours to the Medina United Methodist Church, Medina Memorial Hospital Gift Shop, TWIG Association, Senior Citizens Center of Medina, Meals on Wheels and Girl Scouts. Shirley worked as a direct sales representative for several companies, earning national recognition and honors.

Shirley is survived by her husband of 65 years, Bernard Amos of Medina; four daughters, Claudia (Wilson) Southworth of Medina, Cheryl (DeVon) Smith of Rochester, Colleen (Gregory) Brose of Bossier City, LA, and Cynthia Graham of Lockport; grandchildren, Stacey (Clint) Cormier of Shreveport, LA, Scott Scharping of Bossier City, LA, and Courtney (Michael) Dzialo of Hampton, NH; great-grandchildren, Caleb and Joshua Cormier of Shreveport, LA, and Isabella, Ariana, Matthew and Meghan Dzialo of Hampton, NH; sister-in-law, Betty (William) Crandall of Port Charlotte, FL; and many Pask relatives.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, December 6, from 2-4 and 7-9 PM at the Cooper Funeral Home, 215 West Center Street, Medina. A service celebrating Shirley's life will be held on Saturday, December 7, at 11 AM at the new Medina United Methodist Church (former Apple Grove Inn), 11004 West Center Street Ext., Medina. Burial will be in the Millville Cemetery. Memorials may be made in Shirley's name to the Medina Memorial Hospital or the Medina United Methodist Church.
