    Mr. Bob and family, I was saddened to hear that Mrs. Shirley has joined the Church Triumphant. I know these past few years have been a struggle for her so she has now received the fullness of joy in her salvation. She holds a special place in my heart for her kindness and love she showed me all those years at FIPC. May God’s hands be upon you all during this season of mourning and may legions of Heavenly Angels lift you all up.

  • I am so sorry for your loss. Your mom was a very special person. She helped me so much back in the day of church circle. She was a great mentor in my faith walk. Love goes out to all of you. This is a hard time…our parents moving on. Sincerely, Shan Pouliot

    So sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. I have many fond memories of her. She taught my boys in Sunday School at FIPC (in the tiny room), we shared memories of lady’s circle and activities at church. And not to mention all the bridge games. She also helped me make drapes for my house! She was was a fun, caring person that made great memories for all she touched. We pray for your family as you mourn her passing.
