Memories Timeline


  1. Shirleyann was a Campbell growing up with our Sister June, so we knew her as a friend.  Recently we saw her and Ted at various art shows and enjoyed her art and just reminiscing. Shirleyann will be dearly missed as an artist, friend and a Campbell.

  2. We had the good fortune to know the McChesneys through Colorado Clowns. Shirley was unfailingly kind and we have one of her clown portraits in our home. We wish her family and friends peace and solace.
