Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 11:53 pm:

You'll notice in the lower right-hand corner - by the watermark - the name of "S. Waggoner 1994". We knew her as "Shirlohio", an energetic octogenarian whose daily posts confirmed that our updates were visible to the rest of the world. We just received word on yesterday's "What'sUP" page that Shirley has passed away. Hope to have a link to the memorial later in the week.

I never saw a picture of Shirley. But her Facebook page has displayed this brave's picture for the past several years.

Our condolences to the family, and to her friends who will miss her as much as we will.

I'm saddened. She would sometimes respond to my comments. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends. That's a beautiful illustration at the top.

She will be missed.

I will miss Shirley very much. She was a gracious lady with style and class, always had something pleasant and complimentary to say. Heaven gained an Angel, Earth lost an Angel. Rest in Peace Shirley.

Omgosh, Charlie! That is so nice of you to do
that. She was such a wonderful person whom I came
to absolutely adore. She was always so kind to
everybody. I will miss her so much.

I don't post often but I look at this site daily so I have come to know the regulars. My sympathies to Shirley's family.

Thanks, Charlie, for this nice tribute; since i don't do Facebook i'd never seen the picture you posted. Shirley was a wonderful person who always had a good word to say to everyone on Pasty Cam.

Since Shirley hated Winter so much it was an extra blessing that this Autumn/Winter was so mild! She really enjoyed that!

Many prayers of comfort for her family & friends.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Monday, December 28, 2015 - 03:16 pm:

I always enjoyed Shirley's posts. She was always positive and upbeat. I don't do Facebook either so I never saw this magnificent painting.
My condolences to her family and friends.
Nice tribute Charlie, thank you.

I found this obituary for Shirley

My sympathies to Shirley's family.

I'm so sorry to hear about Shirley! My condolences to her family and friends.

If you've been around the Pasty Cam for a while, you know how regularly she blessed these pages with nice things to say about everyone. Shirley was a wonderful woman, filled with the kind of grace and love that make our world a better place. She will be missed so much! But for every tear of sorrow we shed for her loss, we should wipe away another tear of joy that she's back in the arms or her dear, dear Frank.

Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) has been in touch with Shirley's daughter and was given permission by her, to post a picture of Shirley for those of us that have never gotten to meet her in person.
This photo was taken in 2004, on Frank and her 50th Wedding Anniversary. Deb noted how happy and healthy she looked here. RIP Shirley...

Shirley looks exactly the way I expected she would look. Gracious
and cheerful. A woman who would know how to rise to any
occasion. Bless her memory.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - 08:13 am:

Such a beautiful woman!! I will never forget her!

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 - 12:50 pm:

Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio), a beautiful woman for sure, in so many ways. She was definitely one of the sweetest, nicest folks I've never met (except virtually, right here in Pastyland). And talented, too! She will truly be missed. 😢

I recall seeing her smiling face in her profile too, along with some of her artwork, some time ago.

I am sorry to hear about Shirley's passing. I enjoyed her posts on here.
