    When we were younger we shared many family events and for some time as grown ups maintained contact. She will be greatly missed.

    I am sorry to Shirley’s family for their loss. Shirley will be greatly missed by many, especially me. She was a great person. We had a lot of fun together. We belonged to Gleaners and Purdue Home Makers Club, together. Shirley was caring, generous, giving of herself, the best cook and great asset to our community. Until we meet again, my friend.

    Shirley,
    We have shared many hours of friendship. Our fathers were good friends and your grandparents became our grandparents.
    We shared time working at Gleaner events, Lions fund raising efforts, preparing their Treasurer reports, cheering at ND women basketball games, your baking and cooking, and official cemetery business for Oak Grove and Sauktown.
    We thank you for all of these memories. May you RIP.
    Love, Carolyn Hunt & Marolyn Klockow
