Shirley was a graduate of
Charleston High School in Charleston, Missouri and long time member
of Christ Fellowship Church in Bloomington, Illinois. Some of her
favorite hobbies were playing cards, cooking, ceramics, traveling,
playing Scrabble, shopping and just enjoying life to the fullest.
She was a mother to four but a mother figure to many more. Shirley
was always there to give a helping hand to those in need. My mother
was a wonderful person. She always welcomed everybody with open
arms no matter the situation. Momma was the rock for our family and
now we are temporarily lost without her but we have to be strong
for one another. That is what Momma would want. She is still with
us today. My Heart, My Soul, My Mother, Shirley McGill.
