I was so saddened to hear of Shirleyetta’s passing. she and Norm were among the first people we met when we moved to East Lansing and we remained friends all these years. Shirleyetta was a warm and caring person and she will be missed by all who knew her.

I worked with Shirleyetta many years ago (1989-1990) and she was my neighbor for a few years in the early 2000’s. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and I loved seeing her in the neighborhood walking with her husband Norman. They were both two of my favorite people. I know this is such a difficult time for the family with the recent passing of Rebecca and I am so sorry for your loss and your pain. The entire family will be in my prayers during this very difficult time.
