  1. Shirley is the mother of one of my dearest friends. She was a special lady and I know that she will be missed by many. A life cut short. But, a woman who loved God and her family.

  2. Elizabeth,
    I am shocked that your mother passed and very sorry for your loss. My father had been passed away almost 2 years ago. I was always dad’s girl. My heart goes with you and pray for you. May God comforts you through difficult time and He is always with you.

  4. I am very sorry for your loss. I worked with shirley at parkview for many years. Shirley was a very good nurse, and her patients were always well taken care of. When I first started at parkview I worked night shift and lived in Fountain Co., Shirley opened her home to me so I could sleep and not have to commute back and forth. I am very saddend by the loss of Shirley. She was a wonderful, happy person and a skilled nurse. She will be missed.

She would do anything for her patients to make them more comfortable, whether it was to do something for their physical comfort or just to talk with them. I know she loved her family. You could hear the love in her voice when she talked about “DeeDee, Marsha, Susie, Elizabeth and David”. She will be missed. God Bless.
