    We are so sorry to hear of Shirley’s passing. She babysat our 2 children back in the mid 1980’s and was a wonderful loving care giver and friend. Our thoughts are with her family.

    Knew both Frank & Shirley when I was stationed in Omaha. We shared an apartment and used to go to Sokol Hall. Believe Frank met Shirley at a dance. Shirley was a kind and gracious person. Best to all.
