Shirley was born the daughter of the late Gordon and June (Botsford) Skofstad on Saturday, October 28, 1944, in Waukegan, IL. She graduated from high school and then received her degree in nursing. Shirley worked at Wayne Medical Group in Newark for several years. She was a member of the Clyde Volunteer Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary and the Lyons Silver Sneakers Club. Traveling with her late husband was always a fun time for Shirley. However, spending time with her children and especially her grandchildren, was the most delightful and loving time she spent.

Shirley will be lovingly remembered by her sons and daughters-in-law, Dennis (Vicky) of Newark, David (Janice) of Whitesboro and Daniel (Jennifer) Watrous of Central Square; grandchildren, Nathan (Emily), Amberlynn, Landon, David, Allyson, Ryan, and Andrew; several nieces and nephews.
