Shirley was strong in her faith, determined in spirit, and often found many moments of joy that erupted into uncontrollable bouts of laughter. She continued her family’s Italian traditions through her love of cooking and dedication to St. Joseph. She spent countless hours volunteering for the St. Joseph’s Guild. She introduced her children and grandchildren to this Sicilian tradition, inviting them to volunteer alongside her, icing cookies and preparing for the annual St. Joseph’s Day Altar. Shirley was in hospice care for many months. The family would like to express gratitude to her dedicated and compassionate St. Tammany Parish Hospital nurses, Kim Pomes and Alden who always treated her with love, kindness, dignity, and respect. Shirley was also blessed to be cared for by Eunice Dillon. Eunice, who often called Shirley by the nickname “babe,” and Shirley were fast friends and shared many laughs together.
