Shirley was an active member of Christ Little Tulpehocken Church in Bernville. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. Every year for each holiday she would write short stories for her grandchildren about the upcoming holiday. During Halloween she would write short little spooky stories and turn the lights down and read it to her grandchildren; she loved to write. Shirley also loved playing cards with her family, although most of the time she could be caught cheating. All year round you could find Shirley making cut-out cookies. If you were a neighbor or helped Shirley, you could be sure that you were going to get a cookie delivery. She enjoyed watching baseball and was an avid Phillies fan and knew each and every player.

Shirley is survived by her children, Susan Barnett, wife of James of Temple, Michael Davis, husband of Michele (Wagner), of Robesonia and Mindy Rohrer, wife of John, of Myerstown.
