Shirley Ann Margaret (Henry) Sitte , age 82, of Southport, went to be with the Lord on September 6, 2017. She was born in Fish Creek, Wisconsin, on December 23, 1934 to the late John and Margaret (Robetoy) Henry. On November 2, 1970, she moved to Southport, FL with her family. Although she was a stay at home mom, she worked many hours alongside her husband Donald and sons Dave and Carey to build a successful roofing company. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many. She had an infectious smile and always looked for the good in people. She enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening and caring for her family; which she believed was her greatest accomplishment. Also, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She would take them for walks in the woods where she would tell them stories, have tea parties and picnics. She was a member of the Lynn Haven Garden Club, Panama City Moose Lodge and Messiah Lutheran Church.
