The home where she enjoyed spending time with her father, traveled to over 27 times and dreamed of retiring.

Northwest in 1985 with a degree in accounting, and operated her own accounting and tax service business called, Schelfo Tax Service for 26 years, completing over 5,000 tax returns. Shirley was also the broker of Schelfo Real Estate since 1993. She produced It Me books for children. Shirley was a Godmother to five children and involved in 21 different First Communions, Confirmations, Ad Altare Dei, and Eagle Scout Ceremonies.
