Shirley loved gardening and being surrounded by her flowers. She grew up a farmer’s daughter in Maryland, so she naturally inherited a talent for gardening, just like her mother Francis. As Shirley grew older, she enjoyed being involved with the people she lived next to in her Senior community. She was always involved in helping with their special events and Holiday parties. Her favorite was dressing for Halloween.
