Born on September 4, 1948, in Oklahoma City to Royle and Vera Hussey, she graduated from Capitol Hill High School in 1966, where she played the clarinet and was crowned band queen.

Her love extended to the kitchen, where her homemade meals became legendary, with favorites including chicken enchiladas, pizza, chili, quiche, BBQ brisket, chicken fried chicken, brownies, and spaghetti. She loved to cook for an army of people and there was always plenty of food. Shirley's unwavering faith in Jesus Christ was evident in her actions, and she actively shared her beliefs with others. Shirley set the standard that everyone should have a relationship with Jesus. Her life was a living example. She was always attending church, talking about Jesus, singing hymns, reciting Bible verses, and reading devotionals. She conquered cancer in 2018 and continued to have an uplifting spirit that touched everyone she encountered. Her zest for life extended to extensive travel, including memorable trips to Hawaii, Las Vegas, Puerta Vallarta, Colorado, Camp Nebagamon, and Grand Lake with the MACH B group and her family. Shirley's boundless energy was evident in her acts of love, running errands, and offering words of encouragement and comfort to friends and family. She always exuded warmth, grace, generosity, love and kindness to those around her. It was an honor to know her and be part of her life. Preceded in death by her parents and daughter Kathryn, Shirley is survived by her loving husband Richard, daughter Leslie and husband Joey Hornick, daughter Amanda Armstrong, brother John Hussey, sister Mary and brother-in-law Bill Snyder, sister-in-law Rhdonda and husband Terry Dean,.
