While I didn't know Shirley, I wish I had. Her tribute described a loving woman who enjoyed life and her friends with a positive and cheerful outlook. May her friends, family, and housemates be comforted in their grief, and may the angels guide Shirley into Paradise.
I had the honor of caring for Shirley for the past 6 years.
To be able to come on each day say hello to her and get that infectious smile was how I greeted her each day I worked.
Had to have been 4 years ago I remember her looking out the front window during dinner and spotting a deer on the tree line. I strained to see the brown deer slip out of sight. Forty plus years younger.
95 some odd and she was always a smile and sharp.
Simply her love of life touched me.
For all you think you do for others you get blessings back. She blessed me in turn.
My sincerest condolences in your loss.
