I enjoyed my visits with Shirley over the years. We talked about family, hockey , tigers and elephants among other things. Shirley was always thoughtful and sensitive in spite of her own significant health challenges. Rest in peace Shirley.

Although I hadn’t seen her for a few years, I have very fond memories of Mrs. Watkins. I spent most of the 70’s at her house, hanging out with her kids. It was the best of times. She raised three kids on her own, and always made me feel welcome. She drove a Ford Pinto and loved Elvis and laughed at our joking, and that was cool. But when she looked at you with one eyebrow raised, you knew it was time to be quiet or head for home. Thanks for all the good memories. Rest in peace Mrs. Watkins

To Michael, Cathy & Brian. So sorry to hear about your mother and although the family lost touch over the years I think of Shirley fondly and the happy times spent with her and our families. I would like to get in touch with you all as I have lots of pictures of your Dad when he was young and would like to pass them on.
