She was an Avon Lady in the Charlotte area for many years and volunteered at St. Charles Borromeo Church. She loved to read and garden. Shirley enjoyed traveling to visit family in Kentucky and friends across the U.S. Shirley also treasured the good times; her and Frank had at the “floating cottage” on the Erie Canal.
