    Shirley was a one of a kind person. We first met Shirley in 1989 when I was down from Michigan to be with my mother-in-law while she was in Lafayette in ICU, Shirley was there with her husband. We talked and talked. She invited me to her church on New Years Eve. Years later we attended the same church and she was always there for anyone with a hug and smile. Love you Shirley, will see you again soon.

    Shirley was one of the sweetest person. She always had a smile for you. When she worked at the small store she was always good to all the children. We went to church with Shirley and she was smiling. Shirley was easy to love. She will be missed. Praying for the family. God bless

    I remember her from the little grocery store on North Jackson street. We lived across the street from it. She was so nice.
