Aunt Shirley was the kindest and loving Aunt anyone could have or
want. She was so active and willing to tackle any project you had. When Brian and I would come for a visit from California or Florida we always had to visit Aunt Shirley. She will always be in our hearts. Love you all, Carolyn Sue

Miss Shirley, you were a joy to be around. Always with a smile and a joke, always kind. The world has lost a wonderful woman who has now left this earth a better place because she was in it. To my best friend growing up in Poquoson, Tommy and Nancy please know that your Mom, Miss Shirley, lives in the hearts of everybody she touched. Also know that there can be no doubt she is in Heaven working very hard to make sure we all gain an entrance to her new world.
