Bessie King. She grew up in Vermont where she met and married Clifford
Musick and moved to Holyoke, Massachusetts where she raised two children,
Kathy and Mark. She retired to Hobe Sound, Florida in 2003 where she
enjoyed music, dancing, gardening, homemaking, crafts and thrift shopping.
Over the years she lovingly cared for her family as well as other family
members of cats and dogs she took in throughout her years.
Shirley was preceded in death by two husbands, Clifford Musick and James
Crosby as well as ten brothers and sisters.
Shirley was a woman of faith and trusted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior.
She is fondly remembered for her non-apologetic and vocal support for
President Donald J. Trump. But most of all, for her great spirit and loving
kindness to everyone she met.
