Dear family of Shirley.  I am so sorry to hear of her passing.  She was a wonderful person to work with at Suncoast Security Distributors.  I have missed seeing her and talking to her since she moved back up north.  We were able to see each other a couple of times when she returned to the Orlando area for visits and I am grateful that we had those times.  My condolences to you all.

It’s not often that you can say you were privileged to know someone. I had the privilege of working with Shirley in Orlando. She had a kind heart and was a delight to all whom encountered her. She was industrious, quick witted, and never said a bad thing about anyone, Shirley was a great example for others; she approached everything she did with her beautiful smile and can-do attitude. She was a productive, no nonsense, yet fun person.

Shirley is one of those persons that will be missed, even if you have not communicated with her in quite some time. She made the world she lived in a better place. She was extremely respected by all that knew her. Her kind hearted spirit and gentle way of doing things, while forging through the difficulties that work and life bring upon us, are a model for each of us to follow.

Blessings and heartfelt love to the Cash and Schultz famies. Bask in the privilege of knowing a truly remarkable woman. May God hold you in the palm of His hand as you grieve her loss.

Dear family of my "Aunt" Shirley ... Paul, Llewellyn, Gary & Deb, Mike & Becky, Barb, Brett, Avery, and Wren ... She spoke lovingly of all of you and I know you all loved her and looked after her well. We only spoke two or three times a year but worked together at Suncoast Security in Orlando for many years and I thought of her like family. We last spoke on new years Eve and I've been trying to call her for two days now to wish her a happy 90th birthday, but I never got through and now I know why, I was so blessed to have known her and I will cherish my memories of her. She was so kind, sweet, and loving. Always ready to laugh too. Heaven has a new and wonderful angel now. 
Hugs and love to you all.

Shirley was the kindest, sweetest, most helpful lady I know. I worked with her for many years. I cherish my Christmas ornaments every year her/sandy made for myself and others. I was lucky to have her everyday at work.. She touched my life in so many ways. My condolences to her family.

Our Aunt Shirley was greatly loved by her family and friends. She always had a yard or house filled with laughter and happy children. She was beautiful inside and out. I have thought of her every day since I heard she passed. She is greatly missed.
