Her most recent gift to Gilbertsville was establishing the “Bread of Life” free lunch program, now in its second successful year.
Perhaps her greatest life achievement was her inability to make enemies. She was well liked, respected and sure to be greatly missed.
There will be no calling hours.
A memorial service for Shirley will be held at the Baptist Church of Gilbertsville on Wednesday, Nov. 14, 2012, at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Kurt Funke and the Rev. Donna Steckline officiating. Private burial will be at the convenience of the family.
Those who wish are asked to consider donations to the Catskill Area Hospice, 1 Birchwood Drive. Oneonta, NY 13820 in Shirley’s memory.

Arrangements are by the Johnston Funeral home of Morris.
