Shirley will be missed by Tom and myself. Whenever we were nearby camping we would stop in to see both Shirley and Bob (who I thought for years his name was Dale). Sometimes we when for lunch at Boones Long Lake Inn or just downtown in Manistee. As the years went by: sometimes we just sat and chatted. I do remember going with my mother,dad, sister and Grandma Zemke to Reed City, just after Shirley and Bob were married. We brought Grandma Bell and her wedding gift for them. It was a box of silverware. We will keep Shirley and Bob in our prayers. God Bless your family. Danielle (Zemke) Korson
