I just found out that Shirley has passed. My name is David Rogers. I am her brother. We had the same father, Earl Rogers. I live in California and did not have a lot of contact with her after moving here. I tried to call her several times but found her phone out of service. She and her daughter Renee have visited us in California. Another brother Danny passed in 2001.

Renee, Stan and the family of Shirley Mae McCulla, I was so shocked and saddened yesterday, to learn from Stan of Shirley's sudden and untimely passing. I tried to connect with her a couple times over the past two years to catch up with her for a lunch date, but she wasn't able to respond. I'm sorry for all our loss. May the grace of God be with you at this difficult time and in the days ahead.

I just found out about your mom. I am so very sorry about your loss. I lost her phone number so I wasn't able to contact her. She was a wonderful, thoughtful neighbor who had a difficult life, at times. She has two beautiful children and several grand childrem and great grand children who, I know, ment the world to her.. I'll keep you all in my prayers.
