Condolence: My sympathy to Shirley's family. I always looked forward to seeing Shirley at all of the big meets in Michigan. She always talked me into judging with her, which I was happy to do because she was great to visit with throughout the day.

My thoughts and prayers are with Jim and family.
She will be greatly missed.

Condolence: Shirley was a great supporter of new clubs and associations all around the country. She encouraged everyone to take part in every thing - and to be a contributor. On 4/29/10 I happened to find the first letter that she sent to us, dated May 28, 1988, telling us about all the support that we have in getting our club started. I posted the letter on my facebook page. It is pure Shirley - in one page telling us just about all we needed to know and putting us in touch with all the help we would need! Greg and I are so glad we got to see Shirley at the recent US Nationals. I remember the first nationals I attended. It was at Paramount where Shirley and I met for the first time and before I knew it, I was a place picker. She would not hear anyone's protests of not being able to "do" something. We carry that attitude with us today. With fond memories...

Condolence From: Tom Cushman
Condolence: My condolences to the entire Yates family. So many memories growing up in the sport with you all. In recent years I have always enjoyed running into Shirley and catching up. I have also much admired her unflagging support of our sport and most of all her smile, her always positive outlook. I will miss her.
