Condolences to the family; first met your Mom /Grandmother at Daane's when I was a freshman at Creston High in the summer of 1966 . What a great pleasure she was to work with, she was a favorite among the bag staff and stockers. Shirley was always ready with a smile , a laugh, a funny story or words of encouragement.

She will be missed .

Mike, Steve, Cheri, Renee I was so sorry to hear about your Mom. She was a great person and I was lucky to have her as my Aunt. She will be greatly missed. I know it how hard it was for her after losing Uncle Art, now they are together always. I am sorry I cannot be there but I am out of state. Love to you all.
