I had the pleasure of working with Shirley for 8 yrs. at Salisbury's. She taught me so much and was always there to help out. What a special lady! About a month or so ago she surprised me with a visit. She had just got done making her delicious corn dogs for the Rich Thomas Fantasy Weekend. She said she had thought about me, and knowing how much I loved those corn dogs, decided to bring me some. I've got to say that made my day! That visit meant so much to me. I'll never forget her. God Bless you Shirley. My thoughts and prayers are with Shirley's family.

Our most sincere condolences to Shirley's family. She was a hard-working woman who always had a smile and a moment to share. Whoever wrote her obituary did a really nice job. The Rich Thomas Fantasy Weekend participants and their families have lost a dear friend. She will be forever missed.
