Shirley Ann Rosenberg

January 4, 1938 — March 12, 2022


Shirley Ann Rosenberg, age 84, of Milaca, passed away during the night on March 12, 2022.  Shirley was born in St. Cloud, Minnesota on January 4, 1938 to Adolph and Anna Swanson.

Shirley attended a one room schoolhouse from age 5 through 8th grade and then attended Milaca High School until her graduation at the age of 17 in 1955.  She began her working career as a secretary in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota where she lived with her sister and several friends.
