To know Shirley was to love Shirley! I use to work with her and her family at Sample House and she was so sweet! She acted as though she had always knew you and made you feel like you were old friends from day one! My Mother in law Edith Stilwell Brittain was friends with Mrs. Essie Miller and she often appeared on the Good News program with Edith for years! We have also knew the Abernathy family for many years and are neighbors with them. You are all great people and it has been a pleasure for my husband Allen Stilwell and I to know you! Shirley you will be missed !! love you lots!!!! Patricia Stilwell

Joli, Tommy, Briana and Taylor, our thoughts and prayers as with you during this time. When words are not enough, know that you are in our hearts. Shirley was an amazing person with a witty personality. I will never forget her cheers at the ball games for "Breezy and Tater-Bug" for she was their biggest fan. Love to you all and prayers for the difficult days ahead.
