Shirley Ann Wold - Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel

December 20, 1938 - December 15, 2021

Shirley A. Wold (née, Magstadt)

Age 82, of Richfield, MN passed away Wednesday, December 15, 2021. Born in Richardton, North Dakota, she was a graduate of Taylor High School and Interstate Business College. Shirley worked at several banks, a dental office, and church daycares. She married Duane Wold in 1963. Shirley was a devoted wife and loving mother who enjoyed traveling, exploring small town events, and was an avid reader. More than anything else she loved spending time with her grandchildren and congratulated them with a “good for you” or a “that a way”. She is preceded in death by her parents, Jacob and Esther Magstadt; husband, Duane Wold; and brother, Dennis Magstadt. She is survived by her sons, Scott (Lisa) and Lee (Susan); and grandchildren, Jacob, Jack and Carter. She is also survived by brother, Dale Magstadt; and sisters, Bonnie Butsch and Jayne “JJ” Gibson.

Thank you to MN Oncology and Open Arms of MN for the care and support they provided to Shirley. A special thank you to all of Shirley and Duane’s friends at Oaks on Pleasant for being such wonderful neighbors.

The family will have a private ceremony at Morris Nilsen Funeral Chapel.

    Scoot and Lee, my thoughts and prayers are with you, your dad Duane and mom Shirley will be missed. Scott and I have been friends since elementary school. I remember your parents were always kind and a positive influence: from Shirley making us lunch (Lee never lifting his head until the food was gone); Duane coaching us in middle school basketball; both parents whistling and humming as they helped clean your house, while your 3 roommates Paul, Johnny D, and I just watched. Your parents always asking and teasing us about our current work and activities. My parents Glenn and Geri send their regards.
