Shirley joined RSVP in 2005. I was hired in 2011 and had the pleasure of meeting Shirley then. She volunteered over 1,480 hours for RSVP in many places including the Cancer Society, Autumn Heights meal site, Starr's Cave, Phelps House, Corse School and lastly the Welcome Center. She loved gardening and baking. She's a great lady and will be missed. Mary Maine, Volunteer Coordinator
