Shirley A. Wolf, 82, of Lancaster County, formerly of Reading, passed away into the arms of her Savior on January 29, 2017. She was the best stay-at-home mom anyone could ask for and she always catered to her family's needs above her own.

Shirley was known for her loving nature. She loved Jesus and never missed an opportunity to share His love with others. She dearly loved her family and friends. She welcomed her children's friends into her home and made them feel as though they were part of the family. Food was another way she showed love, and she was a great cook and baker, volunteering her time and talents to many organizations and events.

She was born in Reading, a daughter of the late Henry and Viola (Himmelberger) Hartranft. She was predeceased by her husband, Raymond "Sam" Wolf, and her three older sisters.

Her daughters, Karon Wolf-Brosey, married to Bill Brosey, and Robin (Wolf) Wanner, each gave her a grandson. Colin Brosey and Austin Wanner were her joy! They made her laugh and were dedicated to helping her in any way she needed. Bill was more like a son than a son-in-law and was an advocate for her and her care in many ways.

Kevin Kirlin, a family friend, was a "son" to her and an intricate part of everything that involved Shirley and her family! She had another "family" she loved at Ephrata Manor, where she called home for the past three years.

Shirley was a Sunday School superintendent for the Jr. Dept. for 19 years. She was part of Good News Club for 25 years and volunteered for many years at Community General Hospital.

Her legacy is God's greatest command - that we love Him and others - she did it well! She was a member of CEC, formerly St. Paul's EC Church.

The viewings and funeral service will be held in Auman's Inc. Funeral Home, 390 W. Neversink Rd., Reading, PA 19606. Family and friends may call Friday, Feb. 3, 2017 from 7 to 9 p.m. On Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017, there will be an additional viewing from 2 to 3 p.m. with the funeral service at 3 p.m.
