The family extends a special thank you to all those who cared for Shirley, you all made an impact on her life, and we hope she made an impact on yours. She was a fun, loving and caring person, always looking out for people. Shirley’s outgoing and witty personality allowed her to make many friendships she held dear to her heart.
