  • Shirley was a wonderful person. I feel so blessed to have called her a friend. She will be missed. I will especially miss our monthly lunch gatherings.

  • Rest In Peace Mrs. M……….. Having know Mrs. Mouras much of my life having her daughter, Val, as my lifelong best friend, I have fond memories of her. She was a strong woman who took care of, and cared deeply for her children. I smile when I recall a few years ago when she, daughters Kim and Val and I went Christmas shopping and she cheerfully stated that she was glad to ‘spend time with her 3 daughters’ !!!! I love and will miss you so much, Mrs. Mouras ❤️

    • Thank you Kelly. She certainly was strong. She had to be in order to deal with raising the four of us!

  • Shirley was a wonderful woman, always full of life with so much energy. I met her in the early 1980s when we both worked at The Watkins Printing Company. We also worked together at at Harlan Graphics part-time in the 1990s, I believe, and then Capital City Cardiology in the 2000s. We went way back. I missed a lot of the monthly lunches with Shirley and Kristin over the last few years due to my ever changing work schedule; I wish I could have spent more time with her over the last few years. I will really miss Shirley, rest in peace dear friend.

  • I am so sorry to hear of Shirley’s death. I know she will be missed by many……family and friends. She was a strong lady who faced life circumstances with courage and determination. She was always very kind to me and my children. I will miss my occasional correspondence with her. My best to each of you. I pray for your peace as you grieve the loss of your mom. God’s love to you.

  • Val, Kim, Guy, Jeff:
    So Sorry for your loss. I have many fond memories of your mom (and your family). I remember a strong, energetic, kind, caring woman. May she Rest In Peace. Love and prayers to all of you.

    • Strong seems to be the key word here, and couldn’t agree more. Thank you for thinking of us Ann…

  • Guy,
    As your fifth grade teacher, I remember your mother being caring and very much interested in your education. She was personable and positive in my meetings with her. My thoughts and sympathy are with you and the entire Mouras family,
    Linda Van Aman

    • Thank you so much for your condolences. At first, I was amazed that you would remember one skinny ten year old student and his mother from so long ago, then I realized that I hadn’t forgotten you either, so it made much more sense. We obviously connected on some level. You’re right … my mother was indeed a caring and loving person and she never quit trying to make life better for me and my siblings. I owe everything I am today to her, and to the people like you who give so much of your selves to help youngsters succeed in life.

      I’m certain that there is a special place in heaven for you both.

  • Thinking back so many years ago as kids on Wildwood Rd… what fond memories of Mrs Mouras getting us snack or drinks or just yakking with the neighborhood kids.. I hope all the great memories will carry you through this difficult time
