Shirley is survived by her brothers Brooke Jr., John and Robbie, and her sisters Kathy (George) Bottner, and Pat (Rick) Rowland plus numerous nieces and nephews. Shirley also leaves behind two very special people who were a tremendous part of her life. Sherri Simms and Lil Riley were more than caregivers. They were Shirley’s family as well as best friends who went above and beyond the call of duty many times over. Shirley participated in the Maryland Special Olympics for several years, loved singing and dancing, eating out, shopping, the Baltimore Orioles, the many vacations with her special friend, Sherre, and above all, family and friends and visiting with her Mother. Shirley will be remembered for all the love and prayers she bestowed upon everyone as well as her singing.
