Shirley (Cresto) Orth

Heaven was awaited by Shirley (Cresto) Orth of Post Falls, Idaho on December 12, 2021 at the age of 78. Shirley was born in Seattle, Washington April 24, 1943 however her heart cherished the Kirkland, Cle Elum, Ronald, and Roslyn area where her family was centered around.

Shirley enjoyed many of the Idaho pastimes such as harvesting mushrooms in the mountains, picking huckleberries, and picking raspberries with her son David. Shirley was a huge fan of Gonzaga, Seattle Mariners, and Seahawks so much so that she knew every player and all their stats. This enthusiasm was shared by her son for hours of discussions on how they should be coached. Shirley also had a great circle of friends in Idaho for lunches, bingo, and regular birthday celebrations. Every Holiday the family gathered for days full of laughter and love. We loved all of them and will cherish these times for the rest of our lives.

Shirley was a caring mother, grandmother, great grandmother (GG), sister, aunt, cousin, and friend. Shirley is survived by her only son David Orth and wife Raschelle Orth, grandchildren- Tony Orth, Tyler Orth and wife Brianna Orth. Her beloved great-grandchildren - Dylan Orth, Leyla Orth, Averie Orth, Phoenix Orth. Her lovely sisters and brother- Kay and husband Roger Knutson, Cory and Shelley Fuller, Cheryl Kaler. Her beautiful nieces and nephews- Larry and Nancy Marquette, Julie Wiegert, Laurie and Rob Hinkle, Jim and Kim Marquette, Casie Orth. The list of loved ones is bountiful.
