Shirley was of the Christian faith.  When her first husband was alive, they enjoyed singing together in church.  She was a Godly woman, always praying for others, and she never had a bad word to say about anyone.  Her love for others never went unnoticed.  Shirley cherished her children, grandbabies, and great grandbabies.  She enjoyed making quilts when she was able and giving them away.  She was known for her gardening, canning, and making homemade butter.  She was a wonderful Mother and will be sadly missed.
