Shirley was born January 28, 1929, in Woodbridge, New Jersey, to Frank and Hazel Bishoff. She was very talented in the arts and taught tole painting, wrote poetry and even authored 3 books! Shirley was also an avid reader, a good bowler (with a mean hook!), but her favorite pastime was dancing! She could really “cut a rug!”

Due to Covid concerns the immediate family will get together for an intimate gathering at Boone Funeral Home and she will be interred at Fairview Cemetery in Red Bank, New Jersey.

In lieu of flowers, please make any contributions to Shirley’s beloved St. Jude Catholic Church in Benton, LA.
