Shirley went to be with our Lord in heaven on September 22, 2023, to join her loving husband Donald William and their son Michael Arthur Gillman. Shirley was born in Bay City, Michigan on September 9, 1937.
She is survived by her three children and their families: Sandra Gillman of Cleburne, Texas; Bonnie Gillman Lain and Donald Lain, and children Any Gillstrap of Waco, Texas; Cody Lain and Melinda Lain of Cleburne, Texas; Kristen Lain and fiancé Patrick Mitchell of Cleburne, Texas; Patrick Gillman and Susan Gillman and children Michael Malish and Rachel Malish of Austin, Texas; Matthew Malish an Jessica Malish of Alvin, Texas.
Also, sister Judy Kay Kropp and her husband Randy Kropp of Saginaw, Michigan with their two children Joel and Tessa as well as many other cousins, aunts and uncles.
She was preceded in death by her father Arthur Reminder and mother Rose Kartes Reminder, Mary June Reminder and Helen Flaugher.
Shirley was a loving, and giving person, she loved her church and was very devoted in her faith, loved traveling, going on cruises, and going to Coushatta Louisianna with her family and friends.
Donald and Shirley were Founders of the Brazosport Hospital Prescription Assistance Program in November 2002 and she continued the program after his passing in 2005 - Both Donald and Shirley received Unsung Hero Award for 2005 for their community service in the area. Shirley served by Donald's side for their love, devotion and dedication to the Shiners Hospital from 1978 - 2005.
I hope that you all remember Shirley for her personality, antics, tenacity and her love of life.
