Shirley loved her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. She was a member of Diamond Hill Baptist Church and also loved her church homes in the mountains and at the many campgrounds they visited. As avid campers, Shirley and Jay made numerous friends throughout their travels. They especially loved the years they spent at Lake Myers in Mocksville, NC and Greenfield Campground in Jefferson, NC. Shirley will be remembered as a devoted wife, a loving mother, and an adoring Nana who loved being with her family and friends. She was the owner and operator of The Hair Palace Beauty Salon in Warrensville, NC, where she laughed with and enjoyed the clients she served. She loved to cook, and she took great pride in sharing that joy with Drew and Ali. Those who knew her will always remember her laughter.
