Shirley was an amazingly tender and loving wife, mother and grandmother.  It was her true gift and talent.  Ross will tell you that it was what she was put on this earth to do.

Within her family, her cooking will never be forgotten, especially her enchiladas.  Everything she prepared never tasted the same prepared by others, because they did not put the love into everything like she did.

Waiting to greet her as she entered into heaven, were her parents:  Dean and Lucille Brinkley; brothers:  Von Ray, Daniel, and Gary Brinkley; and a sister:  Arline Brinkley.

She leaves her loving memories to be cherished by her husband:  Ross Mason; her two sons:  Will Rich and his wife Julie and Dusty Mason and his fiancé Sarah Barnett; four grandsons:  Tristan, Parker, Landon, and Darrell; as well as sisters:  Peggy Brinkley and Kathryn Axtman.
