Please visit your classmate Shirley Ann Johnson at the CaringBridge site I've set up.

I was with Shirley to her 25 re-union, we had a great time, I know Shirley had a super great time seeing her classmates. I hold these memories even though Shirley is not able to join me now.

Shirley passed away May 6, 2016 at Benedictine Health Center of Minneapolis. I was with her as she slipped away. I miss her very much. I have ordered flowers for Shirley's boulder at Dawn Valley Memorial Park and they will be placed a few days prior to Memorial day weekend. I visit Dawn Valley everyday. It is a beautiful place.

I keep Shirley's spirit alive on CaringBridge by posting new photos and my own journal entries.  I hope you all can look in from time to time. 

I miss her so much.

Jane and all of Shirley's Clipper 64 mates Thankyou for the dove blanket. I spread it out on the living room floor and Holly-Dee our cat had to check it out. It is most beautiful and I will place it on the bed as a bed spread.

Jane, and all Clippers mates of Shirley Johnson (Best). I do have the blanket here at home. Thankyou so much Jane. Shirley was put to rest today. The service was at 1 PM then we all went out to the final resting place of Shirley's. I placed a rose on her grave marker. The service was well represented by family, co-workers from HealthPartners and our neighbors and close friends. Shirley passed away peacefully at Benedictine Health Center of Minneapolis early in the morning of May 6, 2016. I was called early that morning and arrived to be with her in the final hour. I really miss her, she was such a guiding light for me and my strong partner all these years. Without her I would have never returned to my birthplace, Baltimore Md, nor would I have ever been to the Vietnam Memorial and a hundred other places and people that I met over the years because of Shirley, she got me out of my shell. Funny, but she said the same to me, I got her out of her shell. We had a great 35 years together and I miss her so very much. Being her on the Clippers web page gives me a connection to Shirley that I hope i never lose. Shirley also showed me her HS during one of our trips back East some years ago. I loved every minute.
Take care and Jane thankyou so much for the blanket it will be here in the house with me and our cat that Shirley picked out from a rescue house a few years ago, her name is Holley-Dee and is quite a lap cat now.
