I remember Shirley as a woman who smiled easily, enjoyed life and loved her family. I am one of her cousins from Texas, and I remember beautiful summers spent at her grandmother’s, my Aunt Effie’s house. We ran around her wonderful old rambling house chasing each other and the chickens! The home was filled with good food, laughter, and great fanciful stories. Shirley was always kind to her younger cousins. Sending love to her family, especially Whitney, her love for 65 years.

Hey Maw thanks for being part of my life and your extend family Rudy and Lance, We will always keep you close to our hearts. We will always cherish the memories we made together through the year. I'm happy I got to go in Oct to spend that week even if I got caught in the path of Hurricane Delta. It was meant for me to be there. Thank you for loving Kenley the way you did and what you have done for us through the years. Thank you for guiding me with some of your cooking and I have to this day cook the way you thought me. We were two hell cats me and you lord the things you and I did. I sit and think I have to laugh because were two crazy women at times. I will always cherish you as mine and I will always love you as mine. Rest In peace when you see my mom tell her about the life we shared and tell her how I was more like her. Love you dearly and when the time I get to cross over we will be to hell cats in Heaven. Be there waiting For me along with others. Love Snyder

Aunt Shirley was an amazing lady. I had a lot of fun as a child going to your house to play with Becky and had a great time as we all traveled to Scotland in 1973. Exploring Scotland together are some of my favorite memories. She will be missed. Love you all. R. I. P. Aunt Shirley.
