Ms. Shirley is the best friend a girl could have. We enjoyed spending time together, making plans to go sightseeing and shopping. Loved to torment our husbands to take us places. “TROUBLE” was her nick name and Tim’s was “TROUBLE 2”. They both lived up to it very well. Sure will miss our phone calls of stories about the kids and her church friends. And we were making plans to travel and visit each other this summer. Now she can visit all the time. Will watch for my red bird friend. Love you to the moon and back!!! Shirley🦋🦋

Shirley was very sweet and a thoughtful friend to me, someone in whom I could always confide. I will miss her so very much. Our catering days were so much fun and we were so cool in our black slacks, tuxedo shirts and black ties. We have had many lunches over the years where we shared our deepest thoughts. Our last luncheon a few weeks ago she talked about her grand kids, especially Saralyn. I wish her family peace today as I have found knowing Shirley is with her loving husband, Troy and her sweet mother, Lottie.
