She worked for McDonald’s for 21 years until she retired to be a homemaker.  Shirley loved puzzles, Canton McKinley Bulldogs, Browns, Indians, the Cavs and most recently the Kansas City Chiefs; she loved to watch sports and crime shows.  She also loved company, she didn’t mind who it was as long as she could visit with them.
Shirley loved her family and provided a loving home for them. She would show pictures and brag.  She loved to hear how everyone was doing. She also enjoyed being outside and feeding the birds along with the squirrels. She loved to keep her house neat and tidy along with her flowerbeds. 
She will be deeply missed by her family, her grandson’s dog, Tank, her little buddy; and her  dear neighbors.
