Shirley loved to garden, and was never without her small dogs. Shirley also loved to craft and make beautiful gifts for her family. She was fun loving and full of spunk, and would do anything for her family. She was one of the strongest women we knew and could overcome anything.
Shirley was loved dearly by her entire family and friends, she will be deeply missed, BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN.
