Shirley K. Newkirk was born April 18, 1936 in Sturgis, South Dakota.  She was one of ten girls and the daughter of Herb and Mayme (Flanders) Newkirk.  At a young age, Shirley moved with her family to Belle Fourche where she graduated from high school.  In 1955, Shirley was united in marriage to Robert Heinbaugh in Belle Fourche.  To this union was born one son, Steven and one daughter, Kelly.  Following their marriage, Bob and Shirley ranched north of Belle Fourche until 1964 when they moved into town.  Shirley will be remembered for her love of children, especially babies.  She welcomed everyone with a big hug, a treat, and demanded you call her “Grandma”.  She was that and so much more to not only her grandkids, but also to all the kids that attended her daycare over the years.  Shirley loved her family and she was one who never was afraid to say “I Love You” to her friends and family.  She will be greatly missed.

Shirley died at the age of 82 on Thursday, October 18, 2018 at the Rapid City Regional Hospital.

Shirley is survived by her husband, Robert Heinbaugh of Belle Fourche; son, Steven (Lisa) Heinbaugh of Belle Fourche; daughter, Kelly (Derald) Hill of Belle Fourche; 11 grandchildren, Tara (Grant), TR (Bethany), Chris (Annie), Tres (Jade), Turner, Mike, Blythe, Josie, Tesa (Dan), TeaLayna, Stewart; 11 great grandchildren, Devon, Jayce, Breken, LyliAnna, Cambree, Ryan, Tason, Jocelyne, Hayes, Brielle, Ryker; sister, Wanda Hoffman of Lead; brother-in-law, Jerry (Nuzzy) Heinbaugh; sister-in-law, Patti Niesent; and many nieces and nephews.   Her family is very thankful for the very special care she received from Maureen, LuKasey, and Maci and they will be forever grateful.
