Shirley was one of my favorite teachers at WAJ. I learned to type and became proficient at Gregg Shorthand under your moms instruction. I graduated in 1978. She was caring, kind and a wonderful teacher who cared for her students. Im so sorry to hear of her passing. I have no doubt that she was a wonderful mother. Sorry for the delayed condolence but I just found this.

Mom, Thanks for the never ending support and dedication to our family. You knew exactly what was needed to run a home and raise a family. You were one of the last old school matriarch types who cherished the role of mother and husband. Fought like hell to the end. Love Larry
