Shirley was my mother’s youngest sister. She went on to be my mentor in my life work as a nurse. If not for her I would have gone into nursing at a different school. She encouraged me to attend Wesley School of Nursing as she had. It was the perfect place for me. Over the many years we shared and laughed at the changes in our profession. Shirley was able to “talk “ critical care ( my field) much better than I was able to OB, her first love in nursing. She was a loving and caring person to all who knew her. I know that she is reunited with her family that has gone before her and will have everything ready for the rest of the family to follow.


My love to you aunt Shirley, Debra
