Oh such a shock. So sorry for all of you. Shirley was such a strong vital person - always enjoyed visits with her over the years. She was always so welcoming to our Heather as you girls, Karen, grew up together. I last had a great visit with her about a month ? ago in the dental waiting room. She leaves a wonderful legacy in you all. Blessings to you all, especially Lloyd. A wonderful long marriage. Love from Pat and Rich Poole

Shirley had the most amazing bold hearty laugh that was contagious and authentic. I loved her for all the loved she shared with me, my family, and the love she exploded to all her family. She never ran out. She was amazing and a joy to be around. Selfless, beautiful inside and out, kind, and most of loving core deep loving. I want nothing but her family to have great memories as they gather together during this very difficult time. May she enjoy the light of Heaven as she watches in health over all of you. Love to her family always. Love from Delia and family.
