Condolence From: Margaret and Billy Mitchell
Condolence: I have so many good memories of Shirley when
we were growing up. I wish we had lived closer
so that we could have seen more of each other
in recent years. Shirley was one of my favorite
first cousins. Margaret Tyler Mitchell

Condolence: Gayle, So sad to hear of Shirley's passing...seems like only yesterday we were all sitting around her table remembering our childhood escapades. She had that wit and charm together that brought smiles and laughter. Going back to Palatka will not be the same. I'll miss her.

Condolence: Gail y Susan.
Yo no tengo palabras de consuelo para ustedes.
Shirley fue mi única amiga en este país tan difícil para mi.
El dia que ella abrió la puerta de su casa para que yo entrara, abrió también su corazón para que yo entrara en el.
Los días mas felices para mi aquí en Jax los disfrute con ella, fuimos muy felices juntas y ahora no puedo con mi tristeza.
un abrazo

Condolence: To an extraordinary woman, the most sincere and caring friend I have had the honor to been blessed with. Our story is one of unconventional friendship. I am eternally humbled by your generous heart,your compassionate nature, and such phenomenal sense of humor. Shirley Mason, never have I met someone so impactful on my life! My husband, my father, and my son equally embraced you with true love. You touched us all with your friendship. My heart hurts as I write, but know, I will always love you, my dear friend, thank you for your amazing presence in my life.

Condolence From: Richard & Margaret Hodge
Condolence: My wife and I worked alongside Shirley for years at DCF (in my case, literally - she was at the next desk). DCF was not a particularly humorous place to work unless you were one desk away from Shirley. Quick, razor-sharp wit! The lady could find some way to make you smile no matter what. And yet she could be warm and serious, always eager to help when she sensed you were down about something. She was a great friend. We lost touch with her after she left Palatka and that is a regret but she lives on in our memories, that wonderful mischievous smile still on her face.

Condolence From: alice cooper
Condolence: Dear Gail and family,
I was so sad when I read that Shirley had passed. I had been working on the fence line between our house and Mrs. Mason's on Tuesday. I had silent chats with Ollie Mae, Mama and Shirley for letting the vines get so out of hand...they never would have! I read the notice in the paper when I came in.

Please know I have thought about her so often since she moved to Jacksonville. I am so sorry I didn't do a better job of keeping in touch.

Can hear her laughter and know she is in heaven with Mr.Fred, Ollie, Mama and Rusty having a grand Ole time catching up.

Love and prayers,

Alice Cooper...Carr Street

Condolence: I had the pleasure of working w Shirley @ DCF. She was a wonderful person & had an infectious laugh that would light up the room. Though it's been many years since we've crossed paths I will remember her fondly. 🌞✌🏼🙏🏻
