Shirley M. Rady
January 31, 1923 - June 17, 2013
Shirley Margaret Moore Rady of Beverly Hills, left us with only great memories on June 17, 2013. She was 90 years old. Shirley was born January 31, 1923, in the heart of Detroit to Vera (nee Phillips) and Norman Moore. She experienced first-hand the depression days and adapted to her family’s circumstances. Her dad worked for a car company, her mom Vera was a school secretary at St. Theresa. Between them, they were able to make ends meet and raise a beautiful family. There were five siblings, Virginia, Jean and Shirley (identical twins), Bud and Mary Lou.

Shirley was a graduate of St. Theresa High School. She and Jack married in 1950 and started a partnership that celebrated 63 years in November. Together they raised four children, residing in Birmingham for most of those years. Always a superior athlete, she enjoyed playing softball in her youth, and squash, tennis and golf later on. She was a fierce competitor in squash and tennis matches and won her share of tournaments at the Birmingham Athletic Club, where she held court.

As her children grew up and spread out, she moved into her next role as grandmother to one after another grandchild, and she did a fabulous job at it. She was generous and giving. She would have given anything if she thought that it would make her grandchild happy, be it food, sweaters, or puzzle books. All she ever wanted to do was to care for her children (and grandchildren). She always had so much love to give. Always ready for a card game, she was happy to set aside her beloved crossword puzzle to give her grandkids her time. A devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and friend, Shirley was deeply loved and will be sorely missed.

Shirley is survived by her beloved husband of 63 years, Jack Rady and children, John Rady, Paul (Katy) Rady, Jane (Joseph) Jeszeck, and Tom Rady. She is also survived by her grandchildren, Timothy (Laura) Rady, Jeffrey (Corin) Rady, Emma Rady, Clare Rady, Rosie Rady, Meg Rady, Casey Jeszeck and Anna Jeszeck, and most recently, she was presented with her first great-granddaughter, Ryan Rady. Sister of Mary Lou Sheeran and brother, Norman “Bud” (Bonnie) Moore, Jr.. Shirley is preceded in death by her sister, Virginia Skinner and her twin sister, Jean Wakely.

Friends may visit at Lynch & Sons Funeral Home, 1368 N. Crooks Road (between 14-15 Mile Rds.) Sunday from 2 to 7pm. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Holy Name Church, 630 Harmon Street, Birmingham, on Monday at 10am. Friends may visit at church beginning at 9:30am.

My deepest condolence to the Rady Family. I have known Mrs. Rady since 1971 and she is the most wonderful lady. I am very saddened by ther passing.

Dear Uncle Jack, John, Paul, Jane and Tom. I'm so sad to learn of Aunt Shirley's death. I'm grateful that her passing was peaceful and that she's now with her wonderful parents and two sisters. The Moore sisters were certainly beauties, inside and out. Love, Ann Marie

Ann Marie Ruhlin

Aunt Shirley was so full of love for her family and friends and contributed a lot to all of us. She had such an inner strength and a warm personality that radiated out for all of us to enjoy. God Bless Aunt Shirley.

Ed and I are so sorry to hear Brother Joe's wife, Jane, has lost her mom Shirley, who passed, as it happens, on the wedding anniversary of my parents, Joe and Betty Jeszeck on June 17th. We met Shirley at Jane and Joe's wedding in Seattle. It was a both a family reunion and introduction for both the Jeszecks and the Radys. We met Jane's Dad and brothers and, of course, Shirley. We were impressed by Shirley's strength, handsome beauty, humor, and loving warmth during that fleeting time of Seattle celebration. Our hearts are with the Rady family and friends. Much love to all.

She was a gracious lady whom brought joy to everyone she meet. My thoughts of her go way back to walking from Holy Name over to the Rady home after school. I know she is a bright light in heaven. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Rady Family.

Paul Slavin

Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Rady family. Katy was just sharing with us Colorado friends how special Shirley was to her and the girls. She sounded like an amazing woman to many people. Blessings to all of you. The Kappius Family
