Not sure what to say?

Shirley was a friend from the days of Penderlea School and when our paths crossed, it was always delightful. What a great Spirit and pleasure it has been to know Shirley, Gene and Bob. Peace to all of the family.

I remember Mrs. Edwards Moore fondly growing up 2 doors away from her Edwards' in-laws on Kenwood Avenue and seeing her occasionally as an adult. I remember her children and the Edwards and Gene Edwards kindly. Your Mother, Wife, Grandmother and Great Grandmother was a lovely Southern Lady and always dressed immaculately. May her memory be for a blessing.

I have always loved the closeness of the Edward family She was the epitome of love and grace. She always had a smile on her and a kind word. RIP Mrs Shirley

Deepest sympathy to your family. We rejoice that you will be reunited with Shirley in the presence of our Lord.

We had an opportunity to meet Shirley at our NHHS teachers' reunion lunches. What a lovely lady. I am very sorry about your loss. My prayers are with you and your families.

My sweet Donna- it sadden me to find out today of the passing of Ms Shirley. She was the Gold Standard of what a loving caring Christian woman should be! Her beautiful smile and gentle Southern charm will be missed. My heart goes out to you and your amazing family. We know for sure she is seated at the Lords table with a smile♥. Love you lots, Denise

We have been traveling and just heard about Shirley’s passing. My deepest condolences to the Moore and Edward’s families! Our prayers are with you during this difficult time.

My prayers are with you and the rest of the family

I was saddened to read about Shirley's death in the paper. She was surely a pillar of strength and dignity for the Edwards and Moore families. My prayers are with all of you as you grieve through these difficult days.
