Shirley’s strong faith in Christ was a source of strength for herself, and a witness to others. She was a prayer warrior who was constantly on her knees interceding on other’s behalf. She always put other’s needs before her own. Her memory will never fade, and she will always be cherished in the hearts of those who knew her.
