    My Mom & I loved Shirley. Shirley was a member of our Church at Church of Nazarene & she was the sweetest and nicest lady and I truly mean that. She will be missed by all that was around her. I know this is a great loss to you here but she is now in Heaven and smiling down on all of you.

    Sincerely,

    Sally Young

    Dear Friends,
    I am so sorry. Somehow I missed the obituary in the paper for Shirley but remember her dearly. She would come in to visit at Heritage when her mom was there. What a dear, sweet lady. I remember her coming in regularly and faithfully when she did not
    feel well. Cherish your memories.
