Messages & Condolences

From Kathy & Tom Mulinazzi...

We were deeply saddened to hear of Shirley’s passing. I first met her as my Avon Lady, and enjoyed talking with her about her family over the years. Later I got to know her through our church. She would organize food donations for L.I.N.K. She was indeed a kind, thoughtful person. She will be missed.

She certainly is with her heavenly Father,and finally free of pain.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Deidre, Anthony and the rest of her family during this difficult time.

From Barbara Lowenthal...

Family members, sorry for your loss. Shirley was a wonderful lady and my Avon lady for at least 10 years. I have missed her since she stopped, I last saw her when I picked up my order from her house. I have prayed for her when she talked of the many problems of health.
God is our only comfort in hard times, look to Him.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Shirley. I met Shirley back in 1990 when she left me an Avon book. She was my Avon rep since that day. Her last delivery to me was in 2010. She was always smiling, always helpful and a genuine person. I will miss her alot!!

Mom and I will not be able to attend the funeral but I wanted to tell you how sorry we are to hear about your mother’s passing. She was a good friend to my parents. She would take care of their dog DeeDee when they went on trips. They knew she would take good care of the dogs since she loved them so much. She and Mom used to talk and visit together often but recently, with my mom’s dementia and your mom’s health problems, they didn’t get together as much as they did in the past. Shirley had a good heart and she will be missed by many people. We are praying that God’s comfort will be with you during this sad time.
Betty,Peggy,and Bobby
