Shirley could always put a smile on our face. A drive thru the neighborhood, a baseball game or a "Kids Get Together" and Shirley would be there. She cared about all her friends and their children. At Notre Dame Academy Shirley was a "Senior Class Officer and Leader of 1952". We thank Shirley and her husband Rich Green for having such a great family. Nancy, Cindy, Larry and Daniel when we see you, we see your Mom and Dad. Their memory will live on forever.
