She was a wonderful woman that I was very proud to know!

The light of her life shines still

Shirley is One of the happiest kindest people I have known. She always made us smile. I love that she supported Missouri Council of the Blind and American Council of the Blind, as I have also come to support our work from Washington state later in life. I knew her and worked with her when Alphapointe was Kansas City Association for the Blind. And I will always remember her fondly.

Shirley was like a 2nd mother to me. She was a very admirable, compassionate, kind, loving, adventurous (she loved to travel) woman. Also, she was quite the jokester; she had an infectious laugh. I will miss her smiles, her hugs, her kisses.
