She was a loving daughter, sister, mother, wife and friend.
She worked at Arnot Ogden Medical Center for nearly 40 years, working her way up a key-puncher to the Assistant Manager of the IT department before retiring.
During her retirement she lived her best life traveling, Kayaking, gardening, wintering in Florida and spending as much time as she could with her family. Family and friends were her passion. As a child, she loved spending time on the family farm in upstate NY where she was lucky enough to have a long overdue reunion with extended family last fall.
She was a hardworking, loving mother who instilled those qualities in her 2 daughters. She was a nurturing sister that could always be counted on. She was a caring wife that was also a friend. As much as she loved her immediate family it was her grandchildren and great grandchildren that made her eyes sparkle and her heart warm. She was extremely humble in her many accomplishments at home and work. Shirley was an active member of the Faith Baptist Church, Branchport, NY. She will be forever remembered for her warm, caring nature, her sense of humor…..and her smile.
Shirley’s Graveside Service will be held on Friday November 8, 2019 at 2:00pm at the Bath National Cemetery.
