She was born August 29, 1943 in Chicago to Joseph and Julia. On May 5, 1962, she married her devoted husband Andrew.
Shirley was a loving mother, and grandmother. She was a strong woman who always put her family and friends’ needs before her own.

At Christmas and Easter, the family always looked forward to Shirley’s amazing holiday dinners.
