Ben and I were so sad to read of your mother's passing. I have memories of her when we were young. She was kind and sweet then and remained so. My sincerest sympathy to her beloved children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Sincerely, Anne Sivley Lee

I worked with Shirley at Commercial Billing and she was one of the sweetest people that anyone could know. My heart and prayers go out to her family and friends in losing such a sweet individual.

Shirley was a wonderful person. She was a good friend and neighbor. I remember her coming out to chit chat with me when I was working in the yard. It was always about the time I needed to take a break. I enjoyed those conversations and will miss them. I also will miss her little Pecan Pies she made during the Holidays. The best ever!
My deepest sympathies to her family
