Memories Timeline


  1. So sorry to send my condolences so late. Sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. I knew her from a bowling league many years ago. She was always a fun person. Bill worked with my husband who was on the State Patrol. Was Shirley related to Laura Allee. She was in my graduating class of 1955 from Central and is on our missing list. Hope you are all coping.

  2. I am saddened to hear of Shirley’s passing. She and Bill were our very first friends after moving here from Ohio in 1987 They made us feel so welcome as new residents. We became very close to them – esp sharing mutual interests, i.e. flying, motorcycling and quilting. They were so upbeat and fun to be with. Will miss them greatly.

  3. I delivered Meals On Wheels to Shirley almost every Tuesday and I always looked forward to seeing her and catching up on her news of the week. I will miss seeing her. She talked fondly of all her family and the joy the great grand kids gave her at holiday gatherings. She was special and I am so glad I got to know her.

  4. To the Hurley family,
    We will always remember Shirley as a warm, friendly, and fun loving person. We will miss her tremendously. We have many great memories flying with Shirley and Bill years ago. Please accept our deepest sympathies.

  5. Bob, Donna, & Linda,
    So sorry to hear about Shirley’s passing. She had a very interesting life. I am sure she will be missed. Our prayers go out to you and your families.

    Marvin and Dolores Gersick

  6. A beautiful soul who made such a great impression of courage and kindness even when she was will truly be missed Shirley. It was such a pleasure knowing you and your beautiful daughter Linda for the short time I did. There are a few who really touch your heart and break through the thick skin we try to hide behind during your career in nursing and you were one.

  7. So sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. Another wonderful lady is lost to Pueblo. Bill and Shirley were a staple in the “Brotherhood” of Police Officers and were so kind to me when my husband passed away. Rest in Peace, Shirley, with Bill as you always were.
