  1. Dear Mary, Kevin & Maggie,
    Your Mother always brought a smile to our faces. Together with my mother Esther the laughs were plentiful,
    Your Mother is remembered with the fondest thoughts.
    What a wonderful person she was.

  2. I worked with your mom at the Rochester Conv. & visitors Bureau. Shirley was great lady! She always had a smile on her face. I saw her a couple years ago at the Park Ridge Adult Day Care Center. She still had that smile. She loved her family very much. She spoke of you all. My thoughts and Prayers are with you all.

  3. Mary Francis, Kevin, Maggie
    So many, many great memories. fun times and so much more. Your mom now is with the love of her life & I’m sure very happy. May God be with you all now & forever. Love Tom & Mary Ellen

  4. Mary, Kevin, Maggie,
    I lived with your Mom at several different periods in my life. As I frequently told her, she was one of the most interesting people I’ve ever known (She always said ‘Be careful!’ in response to this.) She was like a mother, sister & girlfriend to me. I think of Shirley often with affection & love. I remember her kindness, love, thoughtfulness & quirkiness all with joy & sometimes find myself saying or doing one of the many things she said and did.
    I loved your Mom!! Please know that I share in your sorrow & loss & wish you great peace and comfort.

  5. Mrs. Mahon is a great lady and a wonderful friend to Esther Mary. She was always in good spirits and friendly to me and our family through the years.

    She will be missed. Our prayers go out to her family and friends.

    Rick & Judy Whelehan

  6. So very sorry to hear of the passing of a wonderful lady. Shirley was always smiling, and I know that my mother is very happy to have her join her.
    God Bless you all.
