  1. My family would like to extend our sympathies to Shirley’s family. My brother and I grew up with Ken, Leo , and Shirley in Sibley, Iowa. We are sorry to hear of her passing. She was a beautiful person. God Bless all of you.

  2. We will never forget her constant wave as we drove past the house (when we lived two doors down) while she worked in the yard. No matter how many times we came and went, she would always smile and wave.
    My heart goes out to all you kids, there is nothing more painful than losing your Mother. God Bless you all. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

  3. My deepest sympathy to the family of Shirley. I bowled with her in the Morning Glories and you could always count on a high five for every strike or spare, she had a great personality to match that firey red hair, I also went on a couple of the gaming buses to Santa Fe with her the last one in Sept. She will be missed. Mary Jo Farley

  4. Our condolences on your loss. Although we hadn’t seen Shirley recently, it was always a joy to visit with her at one of the bowling alleys and tournaments. She will be missed by many.

  5. Rebekah, Kyle and Family:
    I was so saddened to hear the news that you lost your mom. My husband and I extend our deepest sympathy at your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and your family.

  6. Rebekah, Kyle & Family:
    I am deeply saddened to hear the loss of your mother. She was a wonderful woman. I always remember her being happy and having a smile on her face. I wish I could make the service, but due to work constraints I can not. My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I hope that we can see each other very soon.
