I have known Shirley my whole life from church. Stopping by your parents house to get garden goodies. I will always remember her spunk for life..A hard working wife and Mom. I know it has been a very long road during her illness. May you find peace knowing she is not having to fight any longer. Lisa Clay and Bonnie.

Aunt Shirley, was the kindess person, full of love, that she shared with everyone. She always made me and my sister Paula feel loved. My mother told me that Aunt Shirley called me Barney when I was a baby, cause she thought I looked like " Barney Fife" from the Andy Griffith show. I love you will always cherish you,.
