Shirley was united in marriage with Charles Sidney Smith on November 25, 1955, and they made their home in Groesbeck the rest of their life except a brief period in Walnut Springs. Shirley worked for twenty-nine years as a medical technician for Dr. J. B. Riggs in Groesbeck. Most people in Groesbeck at one time or other were a patient of Dr. Riggs, and Shirley had many happy memories of the people she knew and worked with. Shirley had many interests in life, including enjoying working in her flower beds, collecting rocks to use in the flower beds – including riding around and finding the rocks, and she also enjoyed reading. She was an excellent and artistic seamstress who carried over her skill in making her own clothes as a young lady to making beautiful and elaborate doll clothing. She gave her dolls to her loved ones and sold many to the public who placed special orders for them. Shirley loved decorating her home for the holidays, spending weeks getting ready for Halloween, Thanksgiving, and then Christmas. She enjoyed her grandchildren and great grandchildren, and stocked her kitchen with the ice cream and cookies she knew they would look for. She was a member of the First United Methodist Church of Groesbeck. Shirley was preceded in death by her parents and her sister, Mary Emma Shriver. She is survived by her husband, Charles Sidney Smith of Groesbeck; daughter and son-in-law, Susan Patricia and Bill Logan of Groesbeck; son and daughter-in-law, Charles Sidney Jr. (Chuck) and Becky Smith of Groesbeck.
