Rosenberger, Mary A.  & Jack Rosenberger-Yeaple, and Mark H. & Judy Rosenberger;  and a niece, Laurie Wheeler. She is also be missed by her dear friends Eunice, Tracy, Marlene, and her Church Family.

    Shirley was so kind and positive. My girls all had different experiences with her, and she was very patient with them if they were learning something new. She once ordered cookies from my daughter and in the conversation asked what her favorite was. She ordered some for her too, which wasn’t realized until they were delivered and Shirley handed them back as a gift. When they’d see her outside as they walked past, my girls would help her carry in groceries or help her in another way if needed. Much love and peace, Shirley.

    Thank you for being there for my mom. I know she greatly appreciated the kindness and help given by her neighbors and friends and I was glad to hear she wasn’t always on her own. ~Sue

    Shirley was the most authentic person I have ever known–no pretense–just pure love. I will miss her greatly. I am so impressed with the way in which she faced her life and her death and know that she is now home with the Lord she so dearly loved.
