Memories Timeline


  1. Shirley was my neighbor when we lived in our first home. She would come over and help me with my daycare. She was so loving to all the kids. We visited often as neighbors do. She was such a lovely person. ❤️

  2. It was always a pleasure working with Shirley at American Crystal Sugar. She had a positive attitude and a smile for everyone. The Lord has another wonderful angel.

  3. No one could ask for a better sister in law, than Shirley. She was a kind and loving person and she loved my brother with all her heart. They gave us a niece and nephew to be very proud of and the kids meant the world to them, as did their grandchildren. I will miss our talks. Sherry, Robbie, I know how you are hurting right now, that pain will lesson as time passes. Uncle Jim and I send our deepest sympathy. We are thinking of you and wishing you and the kids the strength to go on. May you find comfort in knowing that many are holding you in their hearts. Keep memories of your Mom and Dad forever in your hearts and they will never be far from you.
    With love, Auntie Gloria

  4. Robbie and Sherry, Lori and I are sorry for the recent loss of you mother. We both have fond memories of her during our teenage years. She is certainly in heaven continuing to influence all that knew her.

  5. My dear Shirley to the North:

    What a dear friend you were to me. Your welcoming warm smile and chair always made my day. Many a friend stopped by to visit with you. Sometimes there weren’t even enough chairs.
    You were a joy to my heart and your kindness will never be forgotten.
    I miss you so much, Shirley.

    Love, Joyce Duehr
