I met Shirley because of the Singles Club in New Prague. Several of us would get together and go to dances. She always was such a positive person and enjoyed having a good time. After we learned about her illness, she never complained but just kept looking forward. I always admired Shirley for all of the remodeling tasks she would undertake, she did such a great job at them. I always felt like I sure could do a lot more things after visiting Shirley. Shirley was a special person and she will be sadly missed by all who knew her. My sympathy to her family.

Meyer famly- I'm so sorry to hear about your loss.You don't know me, but Shirley used to take care of my Grandparents at Mala Strana Nursing Home along time ago and she built quit a relationship with them. She was always nice and compassionate with not only my grandparents but also with the other residents.

Your family is in my thoughts and prayers
