Shirley was always there with a smile and that great laugh. We didn’t get to see her often enough with us being in Vermont and she and Jack in Florida. We were sure to see her at the Ryan’s annual 4th of July party with her flag cupcakes and whenever we visited Joan and Bill in the Villages. She loved to keep up with the family news and always remembered your birthday with a card and a call. We’ll miss Shirley for sure just as we’ve been missing Jack.

I miss my sister and am heartbroken I could not be with her at the end. Shirley and I were not close as children given the seven year age difference. Shirley took care of the housework and I worked the fields on our family farm. Shirley loved housework and going to “broken glass” beach (Keansburg beach). As we got older, married, and had children we became very close. Jack and Shirley loved to go to shows in New York and were fixtures at all family gatherings. Jack was a favorite uncle to my children and Shirley always made one of her famous desserts. I will miss endless games of Rummikub, hearts and poker when we were together, and talking with her almost daily when we weren’t. Shirley was surrounded by good friends who cared for her after Jack died and was loved by her nieces, nephews, great-nieces, and great-nephews and will be greatly missed by us all.

There are so many great memories with my Great Aunt Shirley it’s hard to pick just a few to share. I was very lucky to have her and my Great Uncle Jack around so much growing up. From family dinners which were always filled with lots of laughs and funny stories, holiday gatherings, and playing with her jewelry every chance I could get as a little girl. A more recent memory was from 2015 when my mom, sister and I went down to Florida to my Grammie (Shirley’s sister Joan) and Grampie’s house for Grammie’s 80th Birthday Bash and Great Aunt Shirley was there. We had so much fun and the picture I attached is from that trip. I loved her and she will be missed so much.

I remember many great summers with my Great Aunt Shirley and Uncle Jack when they would come to visit in New Jersey. 4th of July celebrations never feel quite right without her cupcakes with the little american flags stuck in them—always one of my favorites! I also remember getting to play with her costume jewelry collection as a child when we come to visit in Florida. I love you Aunt Shirley. You are missed, but I know you are in a better place. God bless!

I have many good memories of family gatherings and holidays spent with Aunt Shirley. We shared many dinners, played lots of card games and had many laughs through the years with her and Uncle Jack. Aunt Shirley always made chocolate frosted cupcakes with little American flags on them for July 4th and at Christmas, you always knew who sent the card with the red and green writing on it. We will all miss her.

Shirley is a dear friend and will always have a special place in my heart. We had great lunch parties. We always had plenty of leftovers. I met Shirley when I was driving with jack. We went to community meetings together. Whenever she needed me, I always tried to be there, from new toilet flappers being replaced to fuses blown. I will miss her ❤️
