Shirley Blevins Obituary

Shirley Ann Blevins, 80, of Knightstown, Indiana passed away on Monday, October 2, 2023 at Hancock Regional Hospital following a brief illness. Shirley was born on October  28, 1942 in Wabash, Indiana, to parents; the late Robert and Mary (Wyse) Koeniger. 

Shirley was a former “Panther” and attended Hancock Central High School. Shirley also contemplated getting a degree in accounting and took some college courses but unfortunately with life having so many unexpected twists and turns she did not acquire her college degree.  She did however, gain life experiences and with these experiences Shirley proudly became one of the first female truck drivers in the state of Indiana. As a truck driver, Shirley enjoyed being able to travel the country. She was happiest behind the wheel of her rig. She spent many years driving her semi and some of the happiest times in her life were on the open road.

She continued her career as a truck driver until her retirement. Shirley was not afraid to give love a chance and married, but unfortunately became a widow, outliving her four previous husbands.

Shirley was a character.  She was spunky and had the gift of gab. Shirley enjoyed talking and visiting with anyone she would cross paths with. She had a great sense of humor. Shirley was an animal lover and leaves behind her beloved pug, Cupcake and her two cats, Bootsy and Cracker. 

Shirley is survived by her sister, Kathy Harvey of Royal Center, Indiana; brother, Roy (Joanne) Koeniger of West Virginia and by her close friend, who she referred to as her “adopted son”, Terry Napier, of Knightstown, Indiana.

In addition to her parents and husbands, Shirley is preceded in death by her son, Dennis Green, sister, Betty L. Collins and brother, Danny Koeniger. 

At the request of Shirley, she will be cremated; she did not want the “fuss” of having a service. Shirley will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by every life she touched.
