I first met Shirley and Ed square dancing! After Ed's passing, Shirley used to attend a weekly fiddle jam with our fiddle group! Quite a gal, so sorry to hear of her passing!

Dear Kristie,
I am so sorry for your loss. I had no idea your mom led such an adventurous, wonderful life. May sweet memories sustain you through this difficult time.

I met Shirley through the RCIA program at our church. She was always smiling and always happy! With a giggle we would talk to my husband and I about the SJ Sharks. I will miss seeing that sunshine face of hers. It always made my day to see her. My heart and prayers go out to her family. I know she will be truly missed. God bless you my Friend.

What a remarkable woman. I had no idea that she walked across the US to NJ or carved totem poles. She must have been an inspiring mother. I wish I had known her better. When the grief of saying good bye finally fades, her life and love will remain with you.
