A donation was made in Shirley's name to the Nature Conservatory by Stephanie & John Jurasovich

To Kevin, Grant, Valerie & Sarah and all of your family,
We are so very, very sorry for your loss. Shirley was a wonderful woman who was a pillar of our family and made a difference in all of our lives. A "family gathering" meant, Shirley, Sandy & Nancy and all of their kids & grandkids. I can't remember a gathering when Shirley wasn't there to talk to and laugh with. My mom always said Gus adored Shirley and I was witness to that and admired that. Shirley was also very lucky to have had all of you taking such excellent care of her. She mentioned that often to my mom. She will be very much missed by all of us.
Love & condolence to you all,

Stephanie & John

We lived across the street from Shirley and Gus. They were good neighbors. Shirley was often seen working in the yard. They both were usually smiling and outgoing. Wonderful people.

Dear Aunt Shirley,
You were always there for every family moment. I'm so happy we were a close bunch and celebrated the big , small and no reason at all moments together. All the memories I have from those moments will keep you near me always.
