What a wonderful person she was,when my gram would allow us to go to the store many years ago to buy a candy bar or a pop. It was her kindness and patience with 4 of us in the store that made her the special person she was. Great memories!!! Will always live on.

My deepest sympathy to the McDonald family. Shirley was a wonderful person who always allowed all 3 of my children to pick out their own penny candy over the years she worked at their store. She will be sorely missed..... I think of them both, Shirley and Jim every time I drive past their house on the way home to my house. I loved them both. Prayers to the family.
