I met Shirley at church in Las Vegas. She was a good person, always ready and willing to enjoy the best of what life have to offer. I will truly miss her. My condolence to the family.
God needed another Angel and he took her. May she Rest In Peace.

God Bless

Someone called today To tell me they heard Shirley passed away, I did not believe it. I needed to check it out for myself and was saddened to learn that it was true. I am the queen of the Winchester Belles Red Hats and Shirley was a member of our group, Shirley was my friend and red hat sister. This comes as a big shock to me as it probably will too for lots of our friends here in Las Vegas, especially since she passed last November and no one here seems to know about it, this seems very sad to me. Shirley was a very busy lady active in lots Organizations and church activities, and special interest groups of her own.

I spoke with Shirley last summer before I went to spend a couple of months back east with my family. She told me she was moving back east to be with her family and was so happy about that and did not plan to be come back to the Las Vegas area again. Shirley and I had a nice friendship for a lot of years and agreed to try to stay in touch. Time passed and we never spoke again and she passed away on my wedding anniversary.

Please accept my condolences to everyone in the family, I really liked Shirley and had lots of fun times with her. I will keep Shirley and all of her family in my prayers. She was too young and had many more wonderful years ahead, but now she is at peace. God Bless.

I am so sorry for your loss. I don't recall meeting your mom but I do remember you and I having conversations when you would visit her or she would visit you. If she was anything like you, she was a wonderful woman, mother and friend. God Bless her and your family.

Love you

It was such a wonderful blessing to meet Shirley. I was fresh from the midwest (Chicago) when I landed in Columbia MD and met this beautiful, spunky lady. She introduced herself to me at work with a big smile and a charming "well hello there"!! We were instant friends. In fact she was my very first friend in Maryland. I loved being around Shirley! Her quick wit, and sense of honor were so welcoming, and filled the void of being so far away from my mom and family back home. I spent many evenings hanging with Shirley and her daughter (my beloved) Stacy at their home, eating their food, and cherishing every moment. I was so honored to have her attend my wedding also! Over the years we've always kept in touch. We even traveled to see her across country when she was in Vegas. Oh how I'll miss my wonderful friend Shirley. I take joy in knowing that she is with the Lord, and that I will see her again one day. I'm certain I'll recognize her, as she'll be the one with the big smile, and the warm greeting.

I have gotta say, love going and hated leaving Columbia Maryland. Fairly short car ride from Jersey to Maryland, but could not wait to get there and see my Aunt and cousins. Aunt Shirley frequently called me C, as I grew out of CC. We had a close relationship during my adolescent years and as I got older she (along with Stacy) became referees for two rambunctious teenagers (my first cousing) tearing up their house. Aunt Shirley was always positive, always encouraging, up spirited and plan old joy to be around. What was most memorable was going shopping with my Aunt and Mom as they agreed (which seemed like 10 mins) in line about who was going to pay for whatever. You had to be there to experience the humiliation as a teenager just wanting to get the stuff and get out. As I got more mature we frequently talked about God, how he had a plan for our lives and his ways were not our ways. I will miss my favorite Aunt, but know she's looking down on me and saying come on C, don't you have some golf to play?
