Although I never spoke often to Shirley, I did know a great deal about her through Meredith.
I helped Meredith with many funerals when my family lived at the home in Lennoxville and then later when I ministered in the area.
He always had wonderful stories of Shirley and she will be missed

Our deepest sympathies to all of you. Shirley will always be remembered by me for her wonderful smile and always a complement. Great memories of her living across the street from where I worked.
She will be sadly missed by many.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time and we are here if we can help in any way.

Love to you all,

Linda & Roy
