High in 1974.

Shortly after graduating from high school, she moved to Atlanta
where she attended Oglethorpe University and was a Teacher's

Shirley was an avid reader and always the life of the party because
of her fun loving spirit and witty sense of humor. On the weekends,
you could find her grooving to Barry White and enjoying great
times with friends and family!

Deuteronomy 32:7 Remember the days of old. Always keep your loved ones memory alive.

Praying that you will find comfort in your memories of your loved one and the knowledge that others are missing her too. Psalms 55:22 tells us to cast our burdens upon the Lord and he will sustain us.
- D.Young
Offering my deep sympathy. Try to imagine a time when there will be no more sickness, pain or death. When we can live forever with our loved ones, even those who fell asleep in death and have been resurrected. That is God's promise to us (Rev. 21:3, 4; Psalms 37:29). For more encouragement from the Scriptures, please visit jw.org.
