Shirley was always on the go. Staying busy was so easy for her. If there was ever a person born with ants in their pants it was her. She looked forward to playing bridge and going to movies with her friends. Going to the casino and playing slot machines brought her so much pleasure. She loved to go shopping and wearing her “cute” clothes and shoes. Setting on the porch at the farm, admiring nature, made her so happy. She was a wonderful loving wife and mother as well as a great cook and homemaker. Her house was beautifully decorated with her treasures.

But, what she loved most was being with family and spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She really enjoyed going to their games and the rodeo.  It made her smile.
