  5. We are so sorry to hear about Shirley. I remember when I had my Raelee (14) years ago and Shirley wanted to have a special “shower” for us because she could not make it to the one at the church. She took Mom(Mary Beth), myself and Raelee out for a special shower lunch. She was always a kind and special person. That smile will be so missed.

  10. Prayers and condolences to the family on the loss of Shirley. One story about Shirley is that I remember when I worked at the Bank Insurance agency in 1978 we had our Christmas Party and Shirley made a lot of the goodies. She made chocolate dipped potato chips which I thought were heavenly. I always think of Shirley’s chocolate dipped potato chips as I enjoy Widman’s “Chippers” almost 40 years later. She was a gem and one of a kind. May you take comfort in the memories of her.

  11. Dear Charles, Susan and family,
    I wish Shirley had had a different outcome. She is resting peacefully in heaven, shining down on you all. It was an honor to take care of her on Palliative Care. I was driving when I learned of her death and I prayed she made it to heaven and for peace and comfort for the family. Shortly after I saw a beautiful rainbow in the open sky of Wyoming!
    It was a pleasure to meet you Charles, Susan and Andrew.
    God bless you all.

  25. To Charles and the loving Family of Shirley,
    Shirley was a true Christian. She was sincere and honest lady to everyone she came in contact with. I had the pleasure of working side by side her at church functions,it was a pleasure to work with her because she always treated everyone equally. We know she’s is in heaven watching down on all of us and rooting for us to lead a very loving Christian life. God had a purpose for her and now she’s enjoying His loving arms. Until we meet her again.

    God Bless all of her loving family.

  26. My sincerest sympathy to you all. I feel as if I have lost yet another connection to my parents. There are so many of my family memories that include Mr. and Mrs. Feeney. May you find comfort in knowing she is surrounded by many of her friends and family who have already passed.

  27. Shirley was a very special lady. At times, she was an angel in disguise to our family. I know the acts of love she bestowed on us were hidden, and she would want to keep it that way, but we hold them very close in our heart and are so grateful for having had the chance to know this precious soul. It is such a wonderful feeling when someone passes, and you are confident she is in the arms of God, which I am certain Shirley is. Thank you, Lord, for allowing me some time with this daughter of yours. We are eternally grateful. Take good care of her as she has taken such good care of so many of us, and will continue to through her powerful prayers! XOXO

  28. Deepest condolences and love from Andy and Marge’s family.

    We will always remember what a sweet lady she was. She is in loving company.

  29. The love of Shirley lives on in this world in her family members. It is evident to me in every interaction I have with them, that this was a uniquely gifted woman in the way she understood right from wrong and the power of Christ in our lives. She raised her daughters to be like her, gracious in all circumstances and always thinking of others before themselves. I am grateful for Shirley and now trust that God has her in his tender care for all eternity.
