Shirley was first and foremost a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.  She was a volunteer for Hadassah and worked at the Vineland New Jersey Unemployment Office.  She and Harry enjoyed playing golf and dancing and spent many relaxing winters in southern Florida visiting friends and relatives.  She was a strong advocate of maintaining a healthy lifestyle:  good nutrition and daily exercise.  This was maintained in her later years through daily walks, and she was rewarded with a long life.
