Meet The Crew


Shirley was the founder of Chuckwagon Pizza, which she opened in March of 1989. Most of the items on the menu came from the mind of Shirley herself, including the recipe for our famous breadstix and pizza dough. Shirley had retired from the day to day operations but left Chuckwagon in capable hands of her daughter, Stacy. Shirley was a mother of 4 ornery kids.

Shirley passed through this world to her eternal peace on Tuesday, March 9th, 2021 surrounded by her loving children.
