Shirley will be greatly missed by all who knew her, many of whom simply knew her as Granny.

She was a long time member of the Woodbury Church of Christ and was proud to call Woodbury her home.  She was a homemaker and loved to sew in her spare time. All her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will cherish the items she made for them over the years.

Anyone who knew Shirley knew of her love for politics. She was proud to be part of the Republican party and proud of the work she did within it.

A private memorial service will be held at a later date. For those wishing to do so, donations may be made to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital.
