Shirley loved cooking for her family. She enjoyed cooking and baking at the holidays; especially Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas, as she cooked a lot during those times. She loved taking walks and shopping especially for shoes. She always obeyed God and put Him first in everything she did. She taught a Women's Sunday School Class for several years. She always did the right thing in her work, her home, and her family. The Bible was her guide. She was always full of compassion and love for others, and would go above and beyond to help someone. She was a special soul that saw the best in everyone. She will be missed by all who loved and knew her.
