We will cherish the wonderful memories over the years of Shirley and Leon and their beautiful and loving family. Their drive down to Canton Mississippi for a visit. The many, many trips we made up to Kansas and Oklahoma for family reunions, Gilbert's fried fish, also crawfish boils, great food and drink, class reunions and lots of vacations.

Shirley, I'll never forget one time at *the cabin*, you took me out on your sailboat . . .WHAT FUN we all had !

Very warm and heartfelt condolences to the family! We love you!
We love you Shirley. Peace ever more.
God Be With Us.

Dear Geubelle family and friends;
I always have loved and admired the Geubelle family, many of whom I have met in person, and have kept up with through my brother-in-law Gil and my sister Louise. Please accept my deepest sympathy in the loss of your beloved Shirley. May you find comfort in knowing that she rests in God's loving arms for all eternity.
