I could fill a book with all the memories I have with you Aunt Shirley.
Your home was our home full of laughter love and the occasional smell of popcorn. We have cried together disagreed (not often) talked about love & heartache. You became the glue of our Tribe everyone went to you for your wisdom on life because you filled our hearts with encouragement by showing us how to be
strong. Hugs forever.

I am so sorry for the loss of such a special lady. I will always remember her smile. My mom loved her very much. I always enjoyed talking with her whenever I would see her. She truly loved all of her family and will be missed by all.

Shirley was one of my favorite sisters in law. We had lots of fun times. No one ever went hungry around Shirley and she didn't know any strangers. She will be missed. Rest in peace, Sweet Shirley
