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.
