Later, she was a member of the Wayside Baptist Church in Johnson City, which she devoted a lot of her time to. Shirley loved her family, especially the grandkids. Watching gameshows or passing time on the front porch seeing the traffic roll by was also a favorite pastime.

The family will receive friends from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM on Monday, June 3, 2019, at Morris-Baker Funeral Home. A funeral service, officiated by Chaplain Chris Hughes, will be held at 12:00 PM. A committal will follow, conducted at 1:00 PM, at Monte-Vista Memorial Park. Acting pallbearers will be: Tommy Scott, Brian Ahn, Nick Blake, Dakota Scott, Brandon Graves, and Terry Blake.
