    Shirley married William Anthony Dunne on February 28, 1959.
    Shirley loved her career in the banking industry for 23 plus years. During the 23 years she made many friends, as well as developed a strong work ethic going above and beyond the call of duty. Her favorite thing to do was dance. She and her late brother Vernon sure could “cut-a-rug” doing the jitterbug. Playing the slot machines at the casino was also a favorite, she absolutely loved the sound of the coins dropping and pulling the handle.
    Shirley was never one to complain. Her day always started with a cup of coffee and a twinkie and ended with Columbo tv show and was always without a doubt a great day in the neighborhood.
    Shirley was always ready to help others and the world was right when she blessed it with her smile.
