  1. I have fond memories of Shirley collected especially as a teenager on sleepovers at the Bowman house. She was a vibrant and lively woman very keen on trying to figure out what trouble us young girls were up to. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends as they grieve the loss of a memorable woman.
