Shirlene was a talented musician, loved to garden & had a keen mind and dry wit. Known for her reverence for God, passion for music and love of children & animals, she will be missed most by those who knew her best.

She was a founding member of Journey Christian Church (formerly West Side Baptist Church), where she taught children's Sunday school, led Pioneer Girls, sang in the choir, played violin and organ, and faithfully tended the gardens for many years.
