Shirley A. Kausch
Shirley A. Kausch, 83, passed away Wednesday, March 5th at Bridge Hospice, Bowling Green, surrounded by her loving family.
Shirley was born in Milwaukee, WI where she married Don Kausch on August 23rd, 1952. He preceded her in death.
Surviving are their 4 children: Lisa (Ron) Browne of Mankato, MN, Mark (Carol) Kausch of Troy, MI, Linda (Mike) Simon of Bowling Green, and Steve (Patti) Kausch of Maumee; and grandchildren: Andy and Matt Browne, Kevin and Stephanie Kausch, Elizabeth (Rairigh), Christine (Pichardo), and Alex Simon, Kyle, Ryan, and Sara Kausch; and four great-grandchildren.
After marrying, she spent time with her husband while he served in the U.S. Army (1954-1956) stationed in Germany. After returning to the U.S., she and Don relocated back to Wisconsin, Nebraska, and Missouri before finding their permanent home in Bowling Green.
As her husband began his career at BGSU in 1968, she enjoyed raising their children before being employed as a bank teller with Huntington Bank in Bowling Green.
Shirley was active as a volunteer at Wood County Hospital in the gift shop and delivered Wheeled Meals. Along with her sewing and knitting hobbies, she enjoyed activities as a Hospital Guild member, her P.E.O. Chapter, golfing in the Link Lassies golf league, and knitting with the KnitWits.
Shirley was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church, while also being a part of the Presbyterian Women's group.  
Shirley enjoyed spending time with her family at their summer home in the Irish Hills area of Michigan and relaxing in the Ft. Myers/Sanibel Island area of Florida during the winter months. Travels to Europe, the Far East, UK and numerous U.S. locations provided enjoyment during Shirley's retirement years. Her passion and never ending source of enjoyment came from her family. The highlight of her retirement was attending the many activities of her ten grandchildren, and graciously serving her community.
Friends will be received at Dunn Funeral Home Sunday, March 9th from 1 to 5 p.m.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, March 10th with visitation one hour prior at First Presbyterian Church.
In lieu of flowers, considerations for memorial contributions are: Wood County Hospital Wheeled Meals Program, the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society, or the First Presbyterian Church of Bowling Green. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting
