    Sorry this is a little late but I just heard of Shirley’s passing. I worked with Shirley at Job Corps until her retirement. Shirley was always the sweetest now matter what… she took pride in her work and always made my day brighter… I still have her Coca-Cola Cake recipe and from time to time will make always thinking of her ❤️I will always treasure my days and memories of her❤️

    I am very sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. She was a wonderful lady and a dedicated nurse. Shirley and I worked together for about 10 years at the Job Corps starting in the 1980s. She and I kept in contact for many years until covid 19 put a hold on visitations. I will be out of town tomorrow, otherwise I would have liked to have attended her service. Please know, Dena, Corrine, and family, that you are in my heart and prayers as you move through this difficult time. Shirley was proud of all of you and spoke of you a lot throughout the years. She will be missed by many.
