(nee GRAY)

  • A very nice lady in a very nice family. - Posted by: Ken Roberts (Friend ) on: Apr 07, 2023

  • I only belatedly learned of Shirley's death. Shirley was, quite simply, a lovely, classy lady. She was always so pleasant and charming in person, and always so elegantly dressed and coiffed. I was fortunate to know Shirley, and her late husband, Don. - Posted by: Doug Johnston (friend) on: Apr 05, 2023
