To Shirley’s Family: I received a call from Isabelle this afternoon telling me of Shirley’s passing. My mother Lois (Anderson) was Shirley’s cousin. Shirley and I talked on the phone usually about twice a year. She was always so interesting to talk to and so cheerful. I am so sorry for your loss and my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
