Shirley was born in the Bronx in 1925. Her father owned a candy store, and she had one sister and two brothers. All her siblings have passed on. After high school, Shirley became a secretary and married the man who sold her family their TV in 1946. Her future husband went into selling and delivering TVs after WW2. They have three daughters; one now lives in Texas, one in upstate NY, and one in Buffalo. Shirley moved to Florida one year ago, after her husband passed away. She moved into the ALF two months ago. I just met Shirley at my last class, and we talked for a long time afterward. She is a proud Jewish woman and sees my class as a way to express her Judaism. Welcome to TOP, Shirley!
