Shirley devoted her love and life to the care of her home and her family. Shirley also had a passion for flower gardening; daylilies were her favorite of which she always so graciously shared divisions with family, friends, and neighbors. Her beautiful flower gardens provided an inviting and peaceful respite for public places such as nursing homes and the private gardens of her friends and family. The American Hemerocallis Society has a registered daylily cultivar named in her honor.

Shirley is preceded in death by her parents, Jim and Garland Thomas; her sister, Claudine Thomas; and her brother, Roy Thomas.

Left to cherish her memory are her three children, Bedford (Sondra), Sue, and Larry (Dottie); her six grandchildren, Trey (April), Cassie (Dusty), Tim (Jessica), Tony (Audrey), Jacob (Kelsi) and James; her two great-granddaughters, Grace and Lilly; two brothers Earl and Charles Thomas; her two sisters Ruby Britt and Irene Williams; and her nieces and nephews. The family requests that any memorial gifts be directed to either the American Diabetes Association or the American Heart Association.
