Shirley was a devoted and loving wife, and considered her main job to be taking care of her children; with a special focus placed on her handicapped daughter. She was a member of the Stop Nine Church of Christ in Byesville. She enjoyed cooking for them, baking tasty pies, breads, and cinnamon rolls. Her love of baking led her to winning a Blue Ribbon, earning first place, for her mouth-watering pecan pie. Her signature meal was a rolled rump roast with potatoes and carrots. She will be remembered for the white table cloth that rested on her table. It bears the signature of everyone who ever ate at her table. She was also a Master Puzzler, and loved putting puzzles of all sizes together. All of her pride, in spite of her accomplishments, came from being a mother.
