Shirley Margaret Rector of St. Louis passed away Thursday, November 17, 2022 at the age of 91.
She is survived by one daughter, Michelle Sliger of Kirkwood, and two grandchildren, Margaret and Caroline Sliger of Kirkwood, one brother, Ronald Paul (Judie) of St. Louis, MO; other relatives, and friends.

Shirley was born June 30, 1931 in St. Louis, MO; daughter of the late Richard Henry Paul and wife, Frances Paul (nee Vogel). She married Allen Frederick Rector August 28, 1954 and raised two daughters together. She was a secretary at Union Electric, a Bridal Registry Consultant at Dillards Galleria, and an Oasis Tutor in the Lindbergh School District.

She loved daily workouts at Club Fitness, playing tennis, gardening, reading, attending Bible Classes, hiking in the Rocky Mountains, and traveling.
