As member of Starkdale Presbyterian Church, she contributed to many church committees, also serving her community as President of the Mingo Jr. Women’s Club, a member of Mingo Band Boosters, and Hill’s School PTO. She enjoyed sharing her knowledge of everything from panning for gold to various crafts by presenting at school visits and scout meetings.

Shirley loved to entertain and travel with groups of friends, school chums, or her extended family from Alaska, to Western United States, to tropical islands, on cruises, by train, by car, or her husband’s private plane.
