She joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints later in life, embracing and exemplifying the teachings of the gospel. Shirley was a dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. She will be remembered for her countless hours of compassionate service. Shirley loved to bake, often bringing homemade meals, bread, or cookies to those who were struggling or in need.
