Shirley, affectionately known as Shell by her loved ones, was amazing in the kitchen. Anyone that entered her home, would leave full of good food and sore from laughter. Her family will tell you her banana pudding is and will always be legendary. She was always “the life of the party” due to her vibrant personality and quick wit. She was a firm believer in family and truly loved her “boys” and her grandchildren. Her love was like the wind, you could not see it but you could definitely feel it.
