They have made their home in the Frytown community. She did house cleaning for several years and volunteered over 1000 hours at the Patients Library at the University of Iowa Hospital. Shirley was a member of the First Mennonite Church in Iowa City where she served on many committees. She enjoyed spending time in her garden and working in her flower beds.
