Shirley and Bob were such wonderful people. She always had a beautiful smile and such a pleasant demeanor. They were part of the First Baptist community for many years. Rest on peace.

So sorry to hear of the passing of Shirley. I have such fond memories of her in our neighborhood as kids and growing up at First Baptist Church. I enjoyed my time with them having coffee at McDonald's when we all congregated there. May you find peace and comfort at this time. Love Terry Metcalfe

Shirley and Bob will be sadly missed. We enjoyed many potlucks, church dinners and picnics on the river and a few bus trips with our good friends Shirley and Bob. We will always remember the good conversations and laughter.

I remember visiting with Bob and Shirley in their home during my time as Associate Pastor at First Baptist in Petrolia. I am so glad to hear that they had all these years of marriage together. May the Lord bring comfort to their family!
