Also many nieces and nephews, dear friend to many. Shirley loved serving the church as a Eucharistic Minister during mass and to home bound parishioners. She was devoted to the Catholic Charismatic Renewal and leader of many prayer groups. She also led the Little Flowers of Mary group.

Shirley loved to travel to many prayer conferences and had many friends from all over. Her children remember her as a devoted mother and her grandchildren will never forget her tender caring ways of loving and helping them. Her many friends will never forget her kindness.

Shirley was a neighbor from Troy street. I will always remember her kindness. She would welcome you and all the other kids on the block into her home . She always had a kind word and a smile
