Shirley and Bob had enjoyed many Perkiomen Bus tour adventures together. She also liked painting, doing puzzles, playing bingo at Phoebe Richland and games of Chinese checkers with her grandchildren.

Mrs. Derstine is survived by her four children: Donna J. Steich, and her husband, James, of Quakertown; Duane A. Derstine, and his wife, Allison, of Sellersville; Dawn M. Fischer, and her husband, David, of Quakertown; and Deanne R. Zoellin, and her husband, Karl, of Ottsville; 11 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by a sister, Claire Reichenbach.
