She loved decorating her home throughout the year, of which the Christmas Season was very special.

She was a great cook and enjoyed cooking for her family and others, and in her spare time shopping was at the top of her list.

Shirley is survived by her husband Franklin of 27 years; two sons: Shawn and (Lisa) Bennett of Eau Claire, and Brian Bennett of Altoona; two sisters: Gerry and (Jack) Holby of Grandview, WI, and Elaine Farrel of Casa Grand, AZ; three grandchildren: Cheslea and (Tiegan) Brock of Chippewa Falls, WI, Breanna Bennett of Eau Claire, and James Bennett of Altoona; four special friends: Jean Ann, Barb, Ruth Ann and Betty; along with many other relatives and friends.
