My heart felt condolences in the loss of Shirley. She was a wonderful friend to my mother, Nora Hurm, who is gone since 2013. I loved hearing about the stories mom, Shirley and Rhea told of their working days at the welfare dept. She will surely be missed by her family and friends. Blessings to each of you and now the three of the girls are reunited again together!! Sincerely, Toni Niemeyer, Nora's daughter.

I carry so many wonderful memories of Shirley with me and am so sad to hear of hear passing. She always had such a beautiful spirit and soul and always made me feel loved! My thoughts and prayers are with all of the Lesters!
