Shirley, together with her late husband Lester, were two of the kindest, most devoted grandparents to ever bear that title. They were loving and generous to a fault, and they were pillars of morality and virtue that the entire family looked up to. They will be missed, but their legacy of love and decency will forever sway the branches of their ever-expanding family tree.
