I had the honor of serving your Mom at Hillcrest-Bruce Mission when she lived in the Bruce apts. She was such a joy to see and a wonderful witness of our Lord. Her smile just lit up my office and I have missed having her here since she moved. I'm so sorry for your loss and you are in my prayers. She has received her final reward.

We had only met Shirley a few times, but she made us feel like we had been friends forever from the get go! We can honestly say that it was a pure pleasure meeting someone who had such a positive spirit about them, and Shirleys smile was contagious. There was no way anyone could be unhappy or sad around Shirley. She will be missed and will be mourned by many. We have to be happy though, because she is now in the arms of her Savior, safe and sound forever. Shirley was a blessing to many, an will be remembered as a Mighty Woman of God. Our deepest condolences to her children and grandchildren, and entire family.
