    One of the many lessons I learned from Shirley is that you don’t have to be a professional singer to sing to people and make them happy. Her annual “Happy Birthday” phone call always made me smile, and I now sing to my grandkids unabashedly with joy- it makes them happy and is creating fun memories! That’s what Shirley did and that’s all that matters!

    Shirly and her husband were members of my Stake for many years when I was a girl.
    When I moved into mission Viejo Ward, there they were. It was so great remembering old times. I still have the Mr and Mrs Santa card they sent me.. May you rest in sweet peace my friend and my prayers and condolences to your wonderful family and friends

  3. I have the same memory that Christi Faban shared. Shirley did the simple things to make everyone feel special. No
    matter how she felt she always had a smile to share. I loved
    Shirley for her wonderful example of love and
    compassion. She and Leonard, Mr. and Mrs. Claus, were examples of eternal love. I love you Shirley :kissing_heart:
