Shirley M. Mackey, age 94, of O Fallon, died on Monday, October 24, 2022, with her family by her side.
Shirley was born July 27, 1928, to Corinne and Harry Becker. She was especially proud to have been a direct descendant of the founder of O’Fallon Nikolas Krekle. She attended Assumption High School and was a lifelong member of Assumption Church.

Shirley is survived by her children: David (Janice) Mackey, Steve (Sandra) Mackey, Sharon (Dennis) Campbell, Mary Mackey, and Melinda (Mike) Goodrich; and her sister, Patricia (Red) Lewis. She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Corinne Becker, and her children, Jim Mackey and Sharlet Mackey.
