Aunt Shirley was the most kindest and Caring women ever... She was a true Southern Bell. I'll never forget growing up and playing in Uncle Johnny's and Aunt Shirley's Beautiful Country yard.. She always made us something sweet or call us over to have tea. I only got to come visit once after she moved away but she still had a Beautiful country yard and was still the kindest person ever. She will forever hold a very special place in my heart. Heaven gained a true true Angel... Until I see you again. All my love Aunt Shirley and the family.. All my Condolences,
Elizabeth Taylor Bryant

Aunt Shirley was one of the kindest people Ive known. My memories of her were when I was much younger and we would visit her. I remember her and Uncle Johnny took care of foster children. She made such an impression on me and my heart. She inspired me at an early age to want to adopt. ( and I did! 😃). Im so grateful for her and the impact shes had on my life and my family.

Aunt Shirley was amazing. She always had a smile and a kind word for me and my family. She stuck up for me as a kid and always told me I was loved. Uncle Johnny and I shared a birthday which made things even more special. I will never forget her love and sweetness for me. We will really miss you Aunt Shirley.
Love, Davie Crockett

Shirley was my neighbor here at The Glenmary. I enjoyed my daily chore of placing a daily trivia publication under her door. What a pleasant friend she became. We who got to know her now recognize our great loss.
