Shirley was a loving building block in all of their young lives and will be deeply missed. Shirley grew up in Middletown, NY where she graduated from Middletown High School. She married and raised a family of four, who she dearly loved. After moving to Germantown, TN in 1974, she returned to college to earn her Masters of Education degree. Shirley loved her role as an educator. Shirley taught in the Shelby County school system until her retirement in 2000. During her retirement she focused on time with her family, family dinners, gardening and traveling when she was able. She also became an avid Memphis Grizzlies fan and hated when her favorite player, Marc Gasol, was traded. During this challenging year, 2020, Shirley kept her spirits high and enjoyed friends and her routine at Brookdale. She spoke with family daily, kept up with the news, keeping her mind sharp and wit intact. Shirley is already missed by us all, a spitfire and a constant in our lives. Shirley and the fun memories we all made together will stay in our hearts and minds forever. We love you Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, Mother-in-law and Friend. Due to the current Covid situation, the family will celebrate Shirley’s life with a memorial at a later time . The family asks that gifts in memorial be given to the Diabetes Association or the Cancer charity of your choice.
