Shirley came from hardy pioneer stock and spent her childhood on a family farm. She later taught elementary school in Lodi and Sacramento for over 30 years. After her retirement, she volunteered at Sutter General Hospital for 20 years. Throughout her adult life, she enjoyed good health, traveling, the company of her beloved dachshunds, and later just being out among the roses in her garden and McKinley Park. Shirley was a woman of strength, quiet fortitude, and resilience; she will be missed.
