Shirl will sadly be missed by her family, her many friends and her German Shorthair pet and companion, Maggie Mae.
Per Shirl's request, there will be only a private family gathering at a later date to celebrate her life. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorials be made to the charity of one's choice. Cremation arrangements are under the care and direction of Martin Mortuary.
