Born in El Paso, Texas
Resided in Salinas, California
Shirley was born in El Paso, Texas November 27, 1931. She moved to the Salinas Valley as a young girl with her family over 72 years ago. Shirley and Ray created so many fun family memories throughout their time together in Spreckels and Salinas.
When you think of Shirley “Nana," you cannot help but smile. She was always full of positive energy and her smile was contagious, even on the worst of days. She was a friend and Nana to so many. Ray and Shirley truly enjoyed attending and watching their grandkids sporting events throughout the years. Her favorite place to be was on her porch, watching the kids and grandkids doing what they love on the ranch. Shirley also had a true love for animals, kids, and the horses at the 4M Ranch and beyond. You could always overhear her saying, “What in the world do people do without dogs?!”
Shirley was also a true homemaker. From cooking for whoever showed up for dinner, to gardening and decorating. Her love to dance was “anywhere anytime” and she was always ready for a road trip and a new adventure! Shirley “Nana” Hauschild will be greatly missed by so many.
Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, Charlie and Anna Greene, her, daughter Jennifer Kropp and son in law, Mark MacKenzie.
