Shirley was such a joy to work with in the Math Dept. at Cornell Univ. She was always "mother Shirley" to all of us. Always full of spunk and such a caring person. Will never forget all the good times we had at work and the two visits I made to NC to see her (2002 and 2011); wish I could have gotten there more often.

My condolences to Jay and the family. We have all lost a wonderful person.
