Shirley Jane Prouty Aull, 73, passed away at her home on June 30, 2023, and has gone to be with her heavenly father.
She was born on November 19, 1949, to Janet Olsen Prouty and Donald Prouty Sr. in Alexandria, South Dakota. Shirley was the oldest of seven children, Thomas, Donald Jr., Barb, Ervin, Joe, and a baby who died shortly after birth.
Shirley came to Excelsior Springs in 1970 and lived there for the rest of her life. She met the love of her life, John Aull, in 1976, and were married for 32 years until his death in 2011. What a reunion they must’ve had. Shirley was employed at Gilmour for 37 years from 1976 until 2013. She loved animals, especially her horses and cats. She also loved traveling back to South Dakota to see her family, especially her sister-in-law Betty. Shirley was of the Methodist faith.
She was preceded in death by her parents, siblings, and husband.
She is survived by her brother-in-law, Woody, John’s best friend, and his wife, Susan; her only niece in the area, Tammy Prouty, of Cameron; as well as numerous other nieces and nephews who loved her.
A memorial visitation will be held on Tuesday, July 25, 2023, from 5 to 7 p.m. at Bross & Spidle Funeral Home in Excelsior Springs, Missouri.
