Shirley was born in 1927, in the Boro Park section of Brooklyn and moved with her family to Hollis, Queens where she attended public and Hebrew school. She later became a comptometer operator which was the forerunner of the modern-day calculator.
She was married in June in 1950 to her first Husband. After he passed away, she remarried two more times. Her third husband was from Lowell, Mass.
Shirley has three children from first husband. The oldest lives in Florida. She also has five grandchildren one great grandchild. She and I have a deal: she comes to my classes as long as I wheel her to the class and afterwards take her to where ever she wants, which I do gladly!
