Shirley married Ronald Mashia in 1989 and they celebrated their 31st Anniversary on May 13, 2020. They Moved to Fairfax in 2001 to present where they enjoyed many years of traveling, camping and many family cookouts.

She loved to be on her four-wheeler and spend many blissful hours maple sugaring with her loved ones in their backyard. Shirley loved to decorate for the holidays with her breathtaking displays. Shirley found much enjoyment in photography involving her Family, friends and the beautiful outdoors. Her camera was always in her hands or if not being held, around her neck. For many years she found pleasure by attending to all her gardens around the house, filled with some of the most stunning flowers and plants. She was so creative and truly an outstanding woman who was beautiful, powerfully strong willed that has inspired everyone she would meet.

The warming moments and wonderful memories will never be forgotten as she truly impacted so many lives with her overall love, kindness and welcoming demeaner.

In her younger years she enjoyed participating in craft shows with her daughter and loved to portray her wonderful artistic abilities into crafting her famous mice decorations along with drawing, painting an even wood burning.

Shirley loved the holidays not only for all the decorations she displayed but she loved to have the table set with all her yummy treats and delicious platters for the entire family. We all will forever remember walking into the wondering holiday baking aromas and the beautiful lights. Beyond all the wonderful things that made her the incredible woman we all were proudly able to grow with. She was a proud Mother, Nana, Wife and Friend.
