Shirley was a true example of a Christian woman devoted to her faith. Her life reflected the love she had for God her and faithfulness overflowed to others by her willingness to serve and charitable giving. She lived what she believed. Shirley was not only devoted in her faith but her husband, children, family and sometimes Republican politics! She was a wife, mother and friend that had the gift of unconditional love and was a very trustworthy.
Shirley loved to enjoy the beauty of nature and all things green, sitting in the yard and enjoying gospel music or old hymns. She also enjoyed all sorts of puzzles, playing Yahtzee and other games with her family. She had a side for adventure and enjoyed traveling a taking trips and travel experiences. The Rocky Mountains was one of her favorite places to travel and explore. Her last travel adventure was moving to Missouri to be closer to her daughter so that she was able to spend last days among those she loved most.
Shirley will be missed by many and if she could answer the phone one last time, she would say” Praise the Lord, Jesus Loves You!
