Shirl loved traveling. Her early retirement years of RV camping took Shirl & Claude on many adventures of exploring and sightseeing. She loved visiting with family and friends and spending time with her grandchildren. She looked forward to playing boardgames and card games every Thursday night and dinner with friends on Friday nights. She was always ready for a shopping excursion. She enjoyed cooking and joined up with close friends in forming a gourmet cooking club which introduced her to many new recipes which she would never hesitate to try out on the family.
Whenever you think of Shirl, remember her favorite things . . . white, fluffy clouds, butterflies, rainbows and waterfalls.
