Cookeville, TN - Viewing for Shirley Teresa Rodgers (née Tamburri), 82, of Cookeville, TN will be held Saturday, May 19, 2018 from 8:45 am to 10:45 am at Earle Funeral Home, 122 W. Church St., Blackwood, NJ with Mass to be held at 11:30 am at Our Lady of Hope Parish/St. Agnes Church, 701 Little Gloucester Rd., Blackwood, NJ with burial to follow in St. Joseph's Cemetery.

After several months of declining health, Shirley passed away peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, May 13th in her daughter's home in Cookeville, TN. She is reunited with her mother, Stella, husband, Robert, eldest son, Michael, and her daughters Kathleen and Denise.

Shirley was born January 11, 1936 in Camden, NJ and raised there by her mother and grandmother. As a young woman she met and married Robert Rodgers. They moved to Cherry Hill, NJ where they built their own home and raised seven children together.

Shirley had an adventurous spirit, and in her later years, she enjoyed travelling the country in her RV, selling jewelry at flea markets, and spending time at her vacation home in Florida. She loved to dance, eat good food, and tend her flowers. She loved chocolate ice cream, her grandbabies (and great-grandbabies) and being at the sea.

When a stroke left her partially paralyzed, she moved to Cookeville, TN to live out the rest of her life close to her daughters, though she always retained a fondness for her New Jersey home and loved ones.

Shirley leaves behind her remaining four children and their spouses; Robert and Edyta Rodgers, Michelle and Chuck McFalls, Jacquelyn and Sam Brown, Jeffery and Sherri Rodgers; and the spouses of her predeceased children, Jim Vance, Neal Quinn and Debbie Rodgers; along with her many cherished grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and her faithful cat, Alfie.
