Shirley was happiest surrounded by her large family, for whom she loved to cook and bake her many specialties, especially her famous bread. She enjoyed having a garden and eating her delicious homegrown tomatoes. An avid sports fan, especially football, she followed many teams and favorite players and never missed a Bishop Carroll football game when her sons were on the field. She had a wonderful sense of humor and provided laughter and fun at family gatherings. Among her siblings, she was the family storyteller who entertained everyone as she brought to life many tales of years gone by and daily events. Shirley was truly the central pillar of the family and will be deeply missed by all. A memorial mass will be announced at a future date. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Northern Cambria Catholic School, Nicktown. Moriconi Funeral Home, Inc., Northern Cambria in charge of arrangements.
