I got to know Shirley through our bowling league, the Young @ Heart.  she always had a smile and a 'hello darlin' for everyone.  I never heard her complain about anything.  

Although I can't say I knew her well, I can say her passing makes me very sad.  Please accept my heartfelt condolences to her family.  May she find peace.
