Shirley was a collector of cookbooks, knitting books, helpful hints, and quotes. She enjoyed spending time listening to radio host Bob Allison, and searching for treasures at flea markets and resale shops. Shirley especially love caring and cooking for her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, family and friends. Every one of her children can remember her fall ritual and cooking skills using apples from the large trees that grew outside her bedroom windows. Her love for all that northern Michigan has to offer began while traveling with her husband Up North, and even in later years Shirley enjoyed vacation trips with her family to those same cities and cabins. She never passed up a trip to Bob Jo’s custard, or a trip to spend time talking and watching the river flow by at the Wyandotte riverfront. The love and legacy she created for her family and friends will go on forever, and she will be missed by all.
