Shirley and Kenneth moved to the Alexandria area in 1970 and became owners of the Skelly Gas Station and Restaurant located at Highway 29 and Interstate 94. Shirley worked most of her life in the hospitality at restaurants including Travelers’ Inn, the Brass Lantern and D&R Café. She was a member of the Eagles 3063 and was very active for many years.

Later in life she was also a founding member of the WRAP (Weedman Retirees and Partners) group that met a least once a month at a local restaurant and took occasional trips.
