She was a dedicated employee first at the Garwyn Medical Center and then at the Johns Hopkins Broadway Center for Addiction where she was a Peer Support Specialist. Shirley was also a faithful member of the New Psalmist Baptist Church. She married Allan Garner on November 2, 2019. She enjoyed being the step-mother to her step-daughter, Ashley. Shirley made numerous friends wherever she went and will be sincerely missed by everyone who knew her. She had an out-going personality, a love of gospel music, fashion and design. All who visited her home were very impressed with her furniture selection, art décor and their layout. Shirley was a fantastic cook … just ask her brothers-in-law.
