A close friend of her sister, Rosemary, for many many years I can

still recall visiting Shirley when

she had a newborn. Ran across her

at Jebbias and was so shocked to hear about the loss of her husband

and now this. She always showed such a pleasant disposition; so likable. I am so sad for her family.

Julia and family, I am so sorry that I missed the visitation of your mother. I was in Charleston attending a business conference for the City of Wheeling where I work. There are so many memories that I that don’t know where to start. The Knight Stand where she and my mother both worked when my mother was known as Aunt Bee and your mother baked cookies and whatever else to sell at the stand; all the Central games well basically everything. I have such wonderful memories. And then Father McGinnis otherwise known as Chuckles. Just so many memories. Good, wonderful memories. I am so sorry and then your father in February. I lost both my parents in 10 months to the day so I know what you are going through. Take care and God bless.

Your mother is an angel now she flies high above the rest,

and in your hearts always and forever she will be the best.

My mother was a teacher at WPHS for many years, and drove me to and from school. Everyday, after school we always went to Convenient. The highlight of our day was stopping in to see Shirley. My mother always looked forward to running into her at Jebbia’s. She was an absolutely spectacular woman, so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. We’re so happy to have known her, will always have dear memories of her contagous laugh and smile.

With love and respect,

Biggs, Madame, & Laura
