Shirleen “Sam” Ann Fritz Moe Rosendahl was born April 9, 1951, in Marshalltown, IA; the daughter of Leo and Ida (Johnson) Fritz of Cresco, IA. She was baptized and confirmed at the Notre Dame Catholic Parish and in 1969, graduated from Notre Dame High School in Cresco. On December 6, 1969, she married Dennis Moe in Cresco. They moved to Waukon, IA, to raise their family and Shirleen worked at Northern Engraving for a time. Until 1983, she worked as an Allamakee County dispatcher. On September 28, 1985, she married Gregory “Rosie” Rosendahl at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Waukon. Together, they owned and operated both Classic Lube and Wash and Danny Mac’s Towing Service. For 20 years, Shirleen worked at Double D Liquor in Waukon, having to retire after she got sick.

She had a heart of gold and a smile that would light up a room. To know her was to love her; Shirleen always made everyone feel welcome when they’d stop by. An amazing cook, she made great Sunday and holiday dinners. Being very crafty and artistic, she enjoyed arranging flowers, leather working and made belts, wallets, and checkbook covers, and wrote several poems, sayings, and a song. Shirleen also liked gardening and playing cards, fishing with Greg, hunting for mushrooms and asparagus, and rock hunting for agates.

Shirleen is survived by her children: Dawn Burr of Lone Tree, IA, and Shawn (Jodie) Moe of Waukon; stepchildren: Aimee Alverez and Jeannie Hill, both of Texas City, TX, James Rosendahl of Waukon, and Conrad (Kristin) Rosendahl of Lansing, IA; her grandchildren: Cheyenne, Shayna, Marshall, and Jaxon; step-grandchildren: Ashley, Taylor, Nathan, Brittany, Logan, Nichaela, Gabriel, Nicholas, Cody, Steven, Alexyess, Joey, Brendan, Izaac, Christopher, Breanna, Marques, and Lev; and her brother Gary Fritz of Waterloo, IA.

She was preceded in death by her parents Leo and Ida Fritz and Shirley (Kindl) Brenneman; husbands Dennis Moe in 1983 and Greg Rosendahl in 2014; and stepdaughter Nicole Rosendahl.

Honorary casketbearers are Don Blocker, Al Buege, Steve Burr, Bruce Rosendahl, and Allen Servias. Casketbearers are Kerry Neuring, Kenny Beardmore, Jerry Schulte, Tom McCormick, Rich Servias, and Jim Connor.
