Shirley was a strong, independent, kind, funny and loving woman. She had a way to making people laugh even when she wasn't trying. She would always be the first to laugh at herself.
She liked to play games on her ipad, bingo and the lottery. Mostly though, she loved spending time with her daughters, grandkids and great-grandkids, especially if eating out was involved.
She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
