Shirley D. Krukowski, 82, of East Syracuse, passed away peacefully at home in the loving arms of her family on Sunday. She was a 1951 graduate of East Syracuse High School. She went on to work for many years at Atlantic Tug and Equipment and then moved on as an Executive Medical secretary for Bristol Meyers Squibb. This led her to move to Evansville, IN in 1986. Shirley returned home after the passing of her husband and retired from Bristol. During her retirement, she could be found hiking, garage sales, bowling, dancing, antiquing and traveling. What she enjoyed most was spending time with her family and her beloved dogs, Caylee and Chloe.
She was predeceased by her loving husband, Robert (Brub) Krukowski and her parents, Arthur and Ethel (Toddy) Scofield.
Shirley is survived by her daughter and "son" Nadine and Mark Spelman, who cared tirelessly for her, two grandchildren, Danielle (Chris) Hudson and Chris Spelman and her adored great-grandchildren, who affectionately called her "Gigi", Nadia, Isaiah and Talia Hudson, Robert White Spelman and Abbigayle Davis Spelman, her sisters, Barbara "Bobbie" (Chuck) Cavanaugh, Lynn (Chuck) Kolb, many nieces, nephews and godchildren.
The family would like to recognize her home care nurses, especially Karyn and Valerie for their devotion, compassion and support.
