In the fall of 1965 the family home was hit by a tornado. Shirley and the family landed in the Vicksburg, MI area in the summer of 1966 were she enjoyed the rest of her life. While Shirley was a "stay at home Mom" she kept the family busy with the annual large garden and various livestock as well as preparing the harvest to be enjoyed until the next growing season. She always gave her children the support and encouragement to pursue their dreams and ideas. As well the incentives to excel academically and in athletics. Shirley began doing ceramics in the '70's and in short order had her own kilns, molds and ceramic shop where she would have instructional sessions as well as group sessions. She started at H&R Block in 2009 where she worked as a tax preparer and eventually office manager. Shirley continued at H&R Block on a seasonal basis until 2014. She started at the local Sam's club shortly after it opened and was soon running the payroll and working with the HR department. Shirley's love, kindness, and generosity will be missed, there's no one with a bigger heart or more love in it.
