Shirley Dea Saderlund Shirley Dea Saderlund passed away peacefully after a long illness on February 8, 2023 in Dawson Springs, Kentucky with her daughter by her side. Shirley was born on January 10, 1938 in Clarinda, Iowa. Shirley lived in Kelseyville with her parents Roy and Crystal Walker most of her life. She attended Kelseyville schools and graduated in 1956 from Kelseyville High School. It was in high school that she met her husband, Donald Saderlund, and they married shortly after high school. Shirley and Don traveled to many different areas of the world including Hawaii, Africa, and Massachusetts during Don’s 25 year career in the Air Force. Once Don retired from the Air Force they moved back to Kelseyville and Shirley worked for Cal Farm Insurance in Lakeport. She eventually joined Don in retirement, where they continued to travel in their motorhome to see friends and family. Shirley loved gardening and would bring beautiful flower arrangements to the Kelseyville Methodist Church every Sunday. She enjoyed raising her Koi fish and she volunteered on the Kelseyville Cemetery Board and at the Kelseyville Methodist Church thrift shop. During retirement Shirley and Don spent their time making crafts and wood products for the Saturday Farmers Market at Steele Winery, where Shirley was a true social butterfly. Upon Don’s passing, Shirley was cared for by her children, her grandchildren and spent her later years at her daughter’s farm in Kentucky where she was most comfortable.
