Heaven will never be the same
after the arrival of Shirley . Her infectious laugh and the twinkle in her eye are now greeting those who went before her. Surely Bob her husband of 60+ years would have been the first in line and they are finally together again . The perfect couple he was the quite one
and she was the outgoing one. She’s probably still telling him everything he missed.
Growing up Shirley loved to ride horses, draw, but most of all laugh and have a good time. Her antics often got her into trouble. She lived to tease and torment her older brothers Raymond and Russell and would tell how they always yelled at her for wearing their sweaters because she “put bumps in them”
she would say.
She loved her family and lived for family gatherings and hosted many Thanksgiving feasts. You never knew what was going to happen
at family gatherings but whatever it was Shirley most often was the instigator.
She quietly guided her kids, we always knew when we’d be in trouble,but she taught us that love and family were most important She didn’t care to travel or visit exotic places, she’d rather be at home playing cards with family.
Her grandchildren and great grandchildren meant the world to her as evidenced by the many pictures all over her house .
She was lovingly known as Gam Gam and Funny Grandmom
Her most favorite hobbies were shopping at Boscovs or Shady Maple’, playlng cards with family and friends, she rarely missed a bingo game, and her most favorite place of all was the casino.
Here’s hoping there are plenty of shopping , card games , bingo and casinos up there. We miss your smile and laughter. Watch over us and know you are missed.
