Shirley Ann (Pierzinski) Belisleage, 87, passed away after a long battle with COPD on March 22, 2023, in hospice care with family by her side. Born on January 30, 1936 in Little Falls, Minnesota to Frank and Mayme (Zeck) Pierzinski, Shirley loved her hometown where she graduated from LFHS in 1954. She moved to Minneapolis after graduating and met her husband, Andrew Belisle. They married in 1958 and moved to Somerset, Wisconsin where they raised six children.

Preceded in death by her parents; husband of 45 years, Andrew “Andy” Belisle Sr., and sister Joyce Selinsky.

Survived by her six children: Ted, Monica (Michael) Petring, Andy Jr., Paul, Chris (Becky), and Pierre Belisle; eight grandchildren: Jennifer Smith, Kelly, Dylan (Liz), Justin, Blair and Katherine Petring, Juliauna (Bryce Johnson), Pierre II; two great-grandchildren: Audra and Bryson Johnson; her sister Virginia Selinsky; and many nieces, nephews, and friends.

Family and friends will miss her dearly, especially her loving smile and warm fuzzies.

Due to ongoing renovations at Church, Shirley’s Celebration of Life will take place in a private service for family and invited guests Monday, May 15, 2023 at St. Anne’s Catholic Chapel. All are invited to the luncheon at American Legion west of Somerset at 12:30, May 15, 2023.

Shirley requested no flowers to be sent.
