Heartfelt sympathy to family of Shirley. I only knew Shirley for a couple of years at Robert Poole in the 50's, but found her to be such a nice person I was glad to be friends in later years. I always looked forward to the times a group of us "Hampden Hons" got together over the years and shared our memories and updates. Shirley was always there with her smiles and laughter. Though there are only a few left in our group, we all loved her and will surely miss her.

I remember Shirley from my earliest years living on Malden Avenue. Shirley was my dad's 1st cousin. We usually went to visit my Aunt Ruth and Uncle Roland on an occational Sunday after church. Sometimes we would stop by to get a cold drink from their shed during a long walk from Hampden. Years ago, my daughter & I were coming home on the light rail from down the harbor. I had parked my car near Shirley's house. My daughter and 1 yr old grandson got stranded on the light rail after I got off. I hadn't seen Shirley in years. When I knocked on her door in tears, she invited me in, gave me a cold glass of tea and calmed me down. That was my daughter's last trip on the light rail. They made it back to the car where we were waiting for her. Shirley was quite the talker and I loved hearing her stories about my dad and his relatives. Wayne and I ran into her about 10 yrs ago at the Rotunda and sat and talked to her for awhile. Rest in peace Shirley.
