She worked at Brownfield Nursing Home for several years prior to working nineteen years with Brownfield Regional Medical Center Home Care.Shirley loved her patients and they loved her. She was known to take them burgers and malts to their home when she went to care for them. Sometimes even taking groceries when she saw they needed food. She not only treated their pain and illness, but she would also pray with them for their healing. Everyone who knew her was in admiration of her generosity and compassion. Loving and unselfish, that was our Shirley!
On numerous occasions she opened her lovely home and her heart to friends to host wedding receptions, bridal and baby showers. Never one to say “no” she was a hostess with a flair! She greeted everyone with her warmth and genuine love, making them always comfortable and welcome.
