So very sorry to just learn of Shirley’s passing. I would send her all of the up dates from School. I wondered why I had not heard back from her. I knew Shirley and Elsworth from school. I graduated with her cousin @ Ridgeley High School. God bless to her family.
Shirley and Elsworth was 2 very nice people.

I am so sorry for your loss. Shirley was my instructor at Belmont for coding. We emailed each other. I just found this but knew something had to happen. Shirley was so nice, kind, wonderful lady, and a wonderful instructor. I miss her but now I know she is a peace. I hope you will get this even if it has been this long, but she has been and always be in my heart. My prayers and thoughts are with you all and always.

Roxanne, we never had the opportunity to meet your mother, but your father was a special person through being an agent and in the local golf world. We’re sure she must have been a wonderful person and given family and friends touching memories. May you be blessed with love and support.

Mrs. Lambert was my Grandmother in-law. I really enjoyed our conversations about business and her work in the Hospital. I respected her greatly. I can choose just one event. She was a great woman and will be greatly missed.

A wonderful mother and my SISter-in-law forever. Shirley was truly one of a kind and she always made me smile. She was part of my life for over 30 years and I will miss her emails and kind words and always her sign off…”Love, Sis”…..I was blessed to know this precious woman and her children…..I know she is rejoicing with her loved ones and for that, my heart is full and happy…..
