Shirley Jane McVicar, age 80, of Janesville died on Monday, April 2, 2018 at her home with her family by her side after a brief illness. She was born in Janesville on September 7, 1937, the daughter of the late Martin and Edith (Lindsey) Setzer. Shirley graduated from Janesville High School in 1955 and later married Joseph U. G.

Shirley was very proud of her family. When they were younger, she was always teaching them life lessons, that they continue to follow today. She enjoyed watching jeopardy, bird watching, tending to her flower and vegetable gardens, and cross word puzzles. She looked forward to playing Facebook games with her family and grandchildren, as a way of staying in touch with them. Shirley was always there for her family as they were her pride and joy. She was a very caring and compassionate woman, who was a wonderful mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
She is survived by her three children: Doris Ann McVicar of Janesville, Susan Kay (Leonard Archuleta) McVicar-Archuleta of Big Lake, MN, and Joseph Martin (Jean Miller) McVicar of Janesville; grandchildren who she adored: Amanda McVicar, William McVicar, and Jennifer (Jamie) Jacobson; and her precious great-granddaughter: Khloe Jacobson. She is further survived by her sister: Mary Ann Kilmer of Janesville; sister-in-law: Marcia Polenz of Ormond Beach, FL; many nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends. In addition to her husband and parents, she was predeceased by her sister: Helen Dreschler; and her brother: Richard Setzer.
