During her journey of life, Shirley worked bartending at the Golden Dragon until she retired, she enjoyed going to the ocean and loved visiting locations with lighthouses. Nubble lighthouse was one of her favorites. Over the years her love of Teddy Bears turned into quite the collection. She loved her Ice Cream! She once went to Kimball Farms and had the Kimball Special and finished the whole thing. But her favorite place to go for ice cream was the Big One in Merrimack.
Shirley’s greatest joy was her grandchildren and great grandchildren. She was known as Uma and there wasn’t a baby that she could not calm and lull to sleep. Shirley was kind to every stranger she met. Often, she would bring someone to the house who needed a place to sleep or who needed a meal. She always had an ear to listen, and a heart filled with love for others. She taught her children to show kindness and to offer help to those in need.
