Shirley A. (nee Jentz) Seltzer, age 91, of Oshkosh, formerly of Delafield, Wisconsin passed away due to Alzheimer's on December 17, 2022. She was born September 29, 1931, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to parents Amos and Jennie Jentz.

Shirley is survived by her daughter, Christine (Jim) Wollerman; sister, Pearl (Jack) Whalen; grandchildren, Heather Wollerman, Eric (Kellie) Wollerman, and Heidi (Erik) Salm. She is also survived by her eight beautiful great-grandchildren, Emma and Abby Russell, Kaden, Everly, and Rylan Wollerman, and Oliver, Aubrey, and Jacob Salm.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Norman; son, Steven Seltzer; parents, Amos and Jennie Jentz; and sister, Janet Vincent.

Shirley grew up in Milwaukee with her two sisters, graduating from Juneau High School. She met her husband Norman at an Eagles Club dance and they were married for 57 years. Shirley was active all her life. She loved to bike and walk with friends and family. Shirley was an accomplished watercolorist, and some of her work can be found in the Waukesha County Courthouse and local hospitals. Shirley was a passionate genealogist and spent years uncovering her family's history dating back to “First Families of Ohio” and “The Daughters of the American Revolution.” Her passion for genealogy led her and Norman to become active in Civil War reenactments and could be found volunteering at the Historic Hawks Inn, in Delafield. She would dress in period clothing, serving as a guide, custodian, and member of the Hawks Inn Board. 

The family would like to thank her caregivers at Sharehaven/Evergreen, Oshkosh, for their compassionate care.

Private family services were previously held. Mueller Funeral Home-Winneconne is assisting the family. If you wish please submit online condolences to muellerfh.net.

In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Hawks Inn, Delafield.

Hello, I was sorry to hear about Shirley's passing. She was a cousin to my Dad, Paul Jentz, and my Aunt Marie Hess. When they were young children, Shirley, Janet and Pearl lived and Amos and Jenny lived with Paul, Marie and their parents Ardath and Gertrude Jentz in the same house with Grandma Stella Jentz on Hwy 100. I only met Shirley a few times but she was a lovely person. It is hard to lose a parent, even if i is expected. Our Dad, Paul died in 2017, and Marie died the same year. We miss them still. May God bless your best memories of your dear Mom and grandma. Karen (Jentz) Bolton kbolton2010@gmail.com
