Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 10:13 am:

I would say good morning, but it's not. Heaven
gained an angel this morning and pasty has lost a
great friend.

"Deb, my mom passed away at 5:45 this morning.
She really struggled the last few days, so now
she is at peace and free from pain. Thank you to
all on Pasty who she considered dear friends for
their kind thoughts and prayers. She loved being
a member of the Pasty family."

And so Shirley starts her new journey free of
pain and in God's loving arms. And though I'm
happy that she's out of pain, I will forever miss

How very sad...thank you for letting us know, Deb.
RIP Shirley...

Now Shirley is reunited with her beloved husband, who she missed so much. But her Homegoing will leave an empty place in the daily Pasty discussion which she filled with love and wisdom. God comfort her family and friends.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 09:00 pm:

Yes, I am sure Shirley is happier now. But she
loved her pasty friends also. She said we were
like her family. I will miss her so much.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 09:01 pm:

I forgot to look at the pictures. Today I will
like the "critter" pictures, as they were always
Shirley's favorites.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 11:20 pm:

God's speed to you, Shirley. It's hard to believe that she was chatting with all of us just a few days ago.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Saturday, December 26, 2015 - 11:25 pm:

...and "Thank You", Deb for the kind words, that sums it up for all of us.

By Doug Walters (Dawalters) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 01:05 am:

Shirley lived about an hour south of me in SW Ohio. So many of our exchanges had to do with our quirky Ohio weather. Such a great spirit but always in the background was her longing to be with her beloved husband, Frank. She achieved 2 goals today, free of pain and reunited with Frank. Deb, thank you so much for the updates, a difficult but necessary task. You spoke all of our thoughts as a true friend would. My condolences to her family.

What a sad start to the day. I am glad that Shirley is free from pain
at last, but like everyone else on Pasty Cam, I will miss her
comments. Like Deb, Shirley and I also communicated by regular
e-mail from time to time--mostly about her home state of
Tennessee and health issues. She loved and knew her South and its
history very well. Heaven's gain is our loss.

By Janie T. (Bobbysgirl) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 11:01 am:

My deepest condolences to Shirley's family. I know they must be grieving very much for her. Shirley is in Heaven living eternal life with her beloved husband and family that she so spoke of so often with the most kind and loving way. Rest In Peace Shirley.

By D. A. (Midwested) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 03:45 pm:

My sincere and deep condolences to Shirley's family.
I always enjoyed her posting "perfectiontionism".

By Waveaction (Lakelover) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 04:30 pm:

"The memory of a good person is a blessing."

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 08:49 pm:

I'll miss Shirley's daily comments too. It was obvious she loved Pasty Cam, as much as we all do.
And I second everyone's thanks to Deb for the updates. Thanks Deb.
Rest in peace Shirley.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Sunday, December 27, 2015 - 10:10 pm:

We,too, will miss Shirley's comments on the Pastycam. She and I thought the E.L. RYERSON was the prettiest ship on the Great Lakes. Keeping Frank and Shirley's family in our prayers.
