The most cherished memories the family have is the love Shirley had for family. She took great joy in playing games and cards with her family over the years, along with just spending any amount of time she could with her Grandchildren and Great-grandchildren. Some other things that brought some light in to Shirley's life were her love of gardening, especially her flowers. In years past, she enjoyed bowling, shopping for a good bargain and going camping. She enjoyed many outdoor activities with Richard including owning Horses, snowmobiles and a Dune Buggy.
