Dear family and friends, we share in your grief and loss of our dear friend, Shirley. We knew her growing up in Charlotte and attending school there. We spent time together at activities, luncheons, shopping, Charlotte Days, and chatting on the phone.
Shirley was a good person and a special friend. She loved to share memories of Raymond, her family, and working years. We will miss her company and her quiet, comforting spirit. Our sincere condolences to you all.
Janice (Thiessen) Sampson, Yvonne (Scharff) Gradert, Sharon (Thiessen) Scearcy

Thank you Diane. You were a good friend to mom, she would tell me that she had talked to you quite often. I will always have memories of going to the bank with mom and grandma and you and Wayne working in there.
