Teresa Mulligan says
Rest easy Aunt Shirley….
Jim Mulligan and Family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all.
* IRISH PRAYER *
You can only have one mother Patient Kind and True; no other friend in all the world, will be the same to you.
When other friends forsake you to Mother you will return, for all her loving kindness she asked nothing in return.
As we look upon her picture, Sweet memories we recall, of a face so full of sunshine and a smile for one and all.
Sweet Jesus, take this message to our dear Mother up above; tell her how we miss her and give her all our love.
Cathy Lund says
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the boys, their families, Jan and Jerry. I have fond memories of hanging out at Shirley’s apartment in Mpls. and at Horseshoe Lake with the boys (my cousins) – where Vi and Archie ran an Inn. It was loud, busy and fun! Shirley had her hands full, raising 4 boys alone for many years. But she worked hard and provided a loving home for them.
We didn’t see her often in recent years, but I will always remember Shirley for her strength and resiliency. I hope she and Grandma Vi , Archie and Grandpa Al are having a high time , getting re- acquainted.
Roger Lund says
Aunt Shirley was such a wonderful person. Fond memories from our times at the lake. All of her boys were so kind to our family growing up. This was a special lady with true grit.
May she rest easy. Roger and Vicky Lund.
