Shirley graduated from Pleasanton High School in 1971, where she was a member of the Pleasanton High School Eagle Band. Shirley had attended many, many football games as a child, since her five older brothers all played football for Pleasanton High School; it just seemed a natural thing for her to be in the high school band and attend all football games. Shirley played the flute in the band. She attended San Antonio College in 1973, getting her Associate Degree in Business Technology. She also became a Paralegal Associate in 1983. Shirley worked for three different law firms in San Antonio where she trained over 75 ladies as she saw them come and go. Only Shirley would remain for many years with each of the law firms. She was an extremely hard worker, was fast and a good employee. Shirley enjoyed her exercise classes. She attended Aerobics Classes, Yoga Classes, and Pilates Classes and was presently enrolled in an Advanced Yoga Class. Shirley was a devout Catholic; and had a tremendous gift of faith. She was born in a family of nine children. She lost her father at the age of five years old. It must have been hard for her to grow up without her father.
