We are very sorry to hear of Shirley passing. She was a very sweet person and I'm so glad she was my cousin. I remember spending weekends and family gatherings with her and her wonderful family in our young years. May fond memories comfort her family and friends during this sad time. Lovingly, cousin Sharon Fisk and Greg Peach
