After graduating from high school in 1970, she got married and started working as a CNA. She had three sons: Jeffery, Michael, and Timothy. God knew to give her sons, and she was able to keep them in check! She worked several years with Verizon and retired from there. She worked with United Health Care and eventually returned to school to earn her Bachelor’s degree in Education at Amberton University in Garland, Texas.
Shirley had an infectious smile and could light up a room when she walked in. She was a faithful member of Mt. Hebron Missionary Baptist Church in Garland, Texas, until her health began to fail her. She served on the Usher Board, sang in the choir, worked with seniors, and welcomed new members to the church.
