Volunteering was a special part of her life. Shirley gave her time to PTA, Cub Scouts, 4-H, Eastside Handicappers, her church, and as a tour guide at Burke Museum, University of Washington.

Shirley wrote the “Rambling on Rose Hill” column for the Eastside Journal, Kirkland’s weekly newspaper. She wrote a book called“ In Christian Fellowship” the history of her Kirkland Congregational Church.
