Shirley Svoboda Sticha, of Webster, passed away May 31st at St. Mary’s in Rochester. Charlie’s wife attended our birthday party on May, 19th, as she often did when her husband’s band played. Shirley, in our memory, will always be beautiful, hard-working, friendly, and fun loving. The Svoboda and Sticha families and friends are a close bunch. A loving wife, Mother, and Grandma, a caring sister, friend, and “Mom” to members of Charlie Sticha Band members, a little lady with a big heart. The Sticha family and a few friends recently returned from touring in Europe together. But most of all, Shirley will be remembered for her spunk and spitfire, loved to laugh and have fun. Our sincere sympathy to Charlie, their family: Carla, Curt and Carissa, Charlie and Shirley’s three grandchildren, Shirley’s mom,
Bernadine and their family. Shirley will be missed.
