She was pre-deceased by her parents, Florence E. (Deckert) & William Frank Parker, sisters Marjorie (Parker) Nichols and Muriel (Parker) Patterson, a brother-in-law Joseph Patterson and son-in-law Richard A. Ledergerber, Sr.

Shirley enjoyed an active life of travel throughout the US and abroad. A favorite "local destination" was always Atlantic City

She was an active member for many years in the Highlands Community Center as well as the Highlands Senior Citizens.

A beautiful soul, she was generous, kind and always had a "nugget" of wisdom to share along with an encouraging word.

Words cannot fully express our gratitude, as her family, for having been blessed to share in this lifetime with her. We are truly enriched by her presence in our lives.
