Shirley was an avid Mah Jong player and loved to teach anyone who was interested in playing. She loved true crime books, shopping and was quite the fashion plate. Everything had to match perfectly. Every hair had to be in place! Above all, Shirley was devoted to her husband, 4 children and grandchildren. She had a lot of friends who preceded her in death but kept in touch with all the ones still alive. She and Barry loved to travel and enjoy life. Both were great dancers and while dating they would go out to St Pete Beach every weekend to jitterbug and do all the current dances with style! Shirley was a homemaker, devoted wife and incredible mother. She was a bookkeeper in her younger years, did various office work and ran a few self-owned businesses. She also worked in retail for several years. If you asked Shirley what her notable accomplishments were being married for 65 years and raising 4 incredible kids.
