Shirley was a caring and devoted mother and a grandmother to all her many “kids” she took in as her own throughout the years. Shirley enjoyed spending time with her family, and going to the track with her husband, Gary. She especially loved watching her Yankees and Buffalo Bills “kick butt”. Shirley loved with her whole heart and would never leave you without a hug & kiss. The world is a lot less brighter without her. She will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
