The family has been overwhelmed by the messages of love and support. We hope to be able to celebrate Shirley’s life in a more inclusive environment at some point.  If you would like to send the family a message of love and support please access the Condolence register on our website to let them know you are thinking of them.  In lieu of flowers donations would be appreciated to Merriwa Ladies Hospital Auxiliary.
