My sweet Shirley. I will forever remember the family gatherings and laughs we shared together with you and Chuck. The Mexico vacation, the Poker events and the Christmas days we were able to share on occasion with our Blazek gang. You were always like a big sister to me and my brothers and sister. Mom considered you her first “baby” and she made sure everyone knew how special to her you were. Mom and dad always let us know how special you and chuck were to them and our family. Your love for my family always shined a bright light. You will forever be in our hearts and thoughts. I know you are smiling down on us with your Infectious smile and laughter. God bless Chuck and Shane. May you Rest In Peace. In honor of the nickname you always called me .... We Love you “babydoll”. 💕

To the family of Shirley, I was so sad the day I received the call to hear of my dear friends loss. God certainly received a special angel in his heavens. I will forever have her engraved in my heart and never forget our days working Merchants Park Bank where several of the employees were not just co workers, we became family. Our birthdays were close so I remember saying funny things to each other about how young we were and how we would stay that way. I will never forget her beautiful smile, laugh and love she gave to me and everyone. I got to sit and visit with her when we lost our beloved Don Harding and will cherish that visit in my heart forever. May God take her in his arms and may she rest in peace.

My dearest friend, Shirley Rose...Almost 45 years ago God decided our paths in this life should cross, and we began a friendship that has meant more to me than I can even explain. Thanks for the laughs, the support, the love, the friendship and the many happy memories. I will miss our conversations, the chance to “catch up” on the latest news and to reminisce about the good old days we’ve shared.
Rest in Gods arms my friend. You are forever in my heart.

It's so hard to say that God needed another beautiful Angel more than we needed you here, but in my heart I know it's true. You were a precious soul! Who will I confide in with my deepest crazy thoughts. Who will I laugh with about the old inside jokes or just everyday silliness. I will miss your text and calls on every Holiday. To my BFF in heaven..... I love you and will forever miss you.

Aunt Shirley had that southern charm and 100 watt smile that would light up a room. She was so full of love and made sure that we knew and felt the love she had for us. She's a beautiful soul and now she has her wings. Fly high Aunt Shirley. You will be dearly missed. My prayers go out to Uncle Wesley and the family.
