I worked with Shirley at Strossner's Bakery when I was in high school. I was so unbelievably taken with Shirley. I admired how she held herself, how she welcomed in just about anyone and treated them as her family. Her hugs were the best thing in the world and her laugh after she whispered a joke to me will be something I never forget. Shirley really was an inspiration to me then and now and I hope to be half the woman she was one day. I love you Shirley!

Shirley was the sweetest little lady you could imagine. A few years ago she just decided out of the blue she was going to buy me a suit. So she had me meet her at the men’s warehouse and she bought me one. Just like that. And I would be remiss if I didn’t add that she could cook better than anyone I’ve ever known. And man how she used to loved doing it. Food on the kitchen table and bar area as far as the eye could see. Then everyone, and there was always an everyone, went to the back porch to sit and talk. Of course I was younger and would be at the above ground pool drinking a Jolt cola, but the adults would all talk. Her house was like a hub for all sorts of people at all sorts of times. There will never be another Aunt Shirley. Praise Jesus, Shirley. For eternity.
