In lieu of flowers and in memory of Shirley, the family asks that you instead consider spending time with an older one in need or perhaps giving a fulltime caregiver a much needed break.
The family would like to give a special thank you to Applegate Hospice, CNA Lisa, RN Tiffany, and caregivers Jamie Andersen and Paula Gilgen Webb who cared for Shirley and gave her respect, dignity, love and care. Also a very special hug to Debbie, Conner and Jackson who were sent to Shirley and the family when they needed them the most.
