    Sorry to hear of Shirley passing. We were neighbors years and years ago in the early sixties on Cooley street in Borger. Even tho we moved away, I still remember her and James having one of the first "RV's" ever. We did occasionally cross paths; but the Walser family will always be remembered. Prayers to all in her family. MD

What an incredible mind! Prayers of peace for Shirley and all of her family and friends. She will be so missed by us all.

    I am deeply sadden by the loss of this sweet soul. I worked with Shirley for many years at American Land Title et al. She was so sharp, knowledgeable, hard-nosed when needed, diligent, kind, a great mentor and wonderful friend. I learned so much from her over the years and she was always so encouraging to me, but didn't have a problem calling me or anyone else out, if we were wrong. She had a wonderful sense of humor and great stories. I loved Shirley as a friend and co-worker. I will miss you, Shirley. Prayers of comfort and peace for her family.
