Richard James Ehrenberg, 81, of Wenatchee, WA, went to be with Jesus on May 7,
2017, in the presence of his loving family. Richard was born in Mobridge, SD,
on September 30, 1935. He married the love of his life, Shirley Herrala, on

Midwest to the Wenatchee Valley. In 1989, they established Miniblinds &
