Shirley was a member of the Easley First Baptist Church for over 73 years, where she served in the children’s ministry for 50 years. Shirley’s true ministry was preparing and serving delicious meals for others. She was the Church Hostess for Easley First Baptist Church, where she graciously served for over 40 years.
There was a special place in her heart for the youth. Generations of students ate meals she planned and prepared at the Easley Senior High School, where she was the Lead Dietitian for over 30 years.

Shirley was a true humble servant of God. She dearly loved and was loved by her children, their spouses, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by all her family and friends, yet we will look forward to seeing her again in heaven.
