Shirley was one of the kindest, sweetest ladies I have ever met. She gave advice with love. Even though I didn't see her often, she will be missed!

Every sunday that I was at church shirley would give me a hug and talk to me. When I would miss church, the next time Id be there she would say she missed me and ask if everything was ok. I worked with her husband Clun at Bi-lo when it was open so hes a great person and good friend. Ill miss shirley, such a sweet person. My prayers for Clun and the whole family.

Dear Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Shirley for several years at South Young. She was a very sweet and kind lady. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time and in the days ahead. May God comfort you.

Aunt Shirley was the Happiest person you would ever want to meet. She always had a smile and an infectious laugh that would brighten the darkest times...well that and she always had us kids candy. I remember sitting with her, Clunn, Grannie B and Pawey at South Knoxville Church of God. I remember how amazed I was how she would play that monstrous organ. That thing scared the snot out of me when I was little. I will miss her but I know she is in a far better place than we are now

Shirley was such a sweet, caring, Christian lady. I remember her coming to my house a few years ago and falling but didn't want it to stop her from having a good time at the Apple Festival. She was introduced to Korean food at my house and believe it or not, she actually liked it. I have received several cards from her through the years. She was a woman who always wanted to do something for the Lord, whether playing the organ, sending a card, or just listening to someone who needed to talk about a problem. Prayers for the family.
