Shirley was of the Christian faith. Working to make a warm and welcome home for her family in Odin, Shirley always cooked amazing meals, loving the time with her family. She learned the art of cooking a good meal from her mother and she and her family have many wonderful memories sharing Sunday dinners around her mother’s table. She held her family dear to her heart and was the glue that held her family together. Shirley especially treasured time spent with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and her face would light up every time she saw them. She loved to listen to county music. Shirley was a kind, true lady who will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved her.
