Shirley Maxine Naugle, a wonderful woman, wife, mother and grandmother, passed away on November 19, 2019 at Carey’s Young at Heart AFC Home in Caro. Shirley was born March 5, 1929, in Pontiac, the daughter of the late Frank and Doris (Mairtrott) Krueger. She was united in marriage with Paul LeRoy Naugle, Sr. on Thanksgiving Day, November 23, 1945, in Ohio. Together, they celebrated 72 years of marriage prior to his passing on January 2, 2018. Shirley sold real estate while living in Pontiac and Waterford. She continued to sell in the Tuscola County area after the family moved to Mayville in 1960, eventually becoming a broker. The Naugle family owned and operated two restaurants in Mayville, the first from 1960 to 1967, the Mayville Restaurant, and the second, Naugle’s Restaurant, from 1970 to 1973. After Paul retired, he and Shirley wintered in Port Richey, Florida from 1982 to 2011. Shirley loved to remodel homes and buildings to house new businesses, and through the years, Shirley and Paul owned several in Mayville, Caro, and Florida, each with Shirley’s unique touch. The couple moved to Caro in 1996 and found a new home for Shirley to remodel.
