When I worked at Parkhurst (along Broadway Ave.) in the 1980s, I was Mr. Gunderson’s secretary. Ken and Shirley were a special couple. Shirley was so brave when she went through her cancer battle and won. I admired her creativity with sewing period clothing. Blessings to Gail.

I came to know Shirley because I worked with her husband Ken at Parkhurst. Shirley and I even took a couple of classes together. She was an amazing woman and I have not met too many people as talented in so many areas as she was.

Shirley was such a sweet lady. I remember her from years ago. My mother used to work with her husband at Parkhurst in Sedalia,Mo. (Patti Hack) I worked with her at Four seasons and would always see her out and about . She always had time to stop and talk about what was happening in our lives. Love you Miss Shirley. Will see you again some day. Prayers to the family. God gained a true Angel. She touched the lives of many people.

I used to work with her. She had so much life and was always so energetic. I always told her I wanted to be like her when I “grew up”. Shirley, this coffee is for you!!
