Obituary for Shirley Ann Lookabaugh

Shirley Ann (Manning) Lookabaugh 79, of Springfield, passed away on Sunday, July 2, 2017, in the Southbrook Care Center. She was born in Athens, Ohio, on December 17, 1937, to the late John and Winnie (Rhodes) Manning.

She retired as an Office Manager, from Metropolitan Life Insurance, after many years of service. Before that, she was a stay at home mom, always active in her children's schools. Shirley was married to Roger Lookabaugh, for 48 years until his death in 2006, and together they had five children: Sheryl (Mark) Canter, Cindy (fiancé Sam) Lookabaugh, and Joe Lookabaugh. Their youngest sons, Jeff and Jason preceded her in death. Shirley had eight grandchildren: Ben (Randi) Pennywitt, Katrina (Brian) Yeager, Kristin Canter, Jonathan (Leada) Canter, Travis Lookabaugh, Kyle (Brittany) Lookabaugh, Jacob (Ciara) Canter and Lily Fultz; and she also had 18 great-grandchildren Alyssa, B.J., Jaden, Milee, Trevor (Mayra), Taylor, Trey, Angel, Noah, Kaitlyn, Lacey, Andrew, Jordan, Ellie, Riley, Baylie, Mason and Ethan. Shirley leaves behind many good friends and family, too numerous to mention. The family would like to thank Margaret and Chuck DeButy, Marilyn Bowers and Betty Goltzene for their support throughout the years. Shirley also leaves behind her beloved dog “Teddy” who gave her so much joy these last few years. She was preceded in death by her brothers: Jack, Bill and Joe Manning.

The family would also like to thank all the caring doctors and nurses who helped Shirley in her physical struggles and especially the nurses, aides and staff at Southbrook Care for the kind and loving care they gave Shirley.

A gathering of family and friends will be held on Thursday, July 6, 2017, from 5-7:00 p.m. in the LITTLETON & RUE FUNERAL HOME where a celebration of her life will be held on Friday the 7th at 11:00 a.m. Burial will be in the Ferncliff Cemetery. Memorial tributes may be expressed at
