Memories Timeline


  1. CandleI adored Shirley. She treated me and my kids like family whenever we saw her. I loved interacting with her on social media as well. She was not your typical grandma. She had all the apps. Lol.
    She sure loved her family. I always enjoyed when she would share photos and stories. Shirley will be greatly missed.
