My thoughts and prayers go out to Shirley's family. I knew Shirley for many years as a neighbor and co-worker in Fulton. She always worked very hard and rarely took a day off. My most treasured memory is making her laugh really hard when I ran to open the overhead door in the factory, slipped in a puddle of water and fell right on my backside!
