Shirley Woodward Sherwood was born June 10, 1929 in Ithaca, New York. Predeceased by Stan, beloved husband of 66 years. Survived by her daughter and son-in-law Karen and Ken Reynolds, Indianapolis, Indiana; son and daughter-in-law Robert and Maureen Sherwood, Cary, North Carolina. Also survived by nephew Donald Sherwood and his wife Anne, Groton, New York. Shirley graduated with her close knit Class of 1946 from Ithaca High School. After moving to the Triple Cities in 1956 she was employed by several businesses, namely Maine-Endwell School District Office, Vail Ballou Press, Binghamton, and IBM Endicott. Her family had many good times playing board games and traveling together. Skiing occupied many, many hours of Shirley’s time, both locally and out west to the big resorts. She and Stan took many cruises, traveled extensively around the world, Europe, the Caribbean islands, Australia, New Zealand and especially enjoyed taking the Eurostar from London to Paris through the Chunnel. She played in two Pinochle clubs and entertained many friends in their home. The family wishes to extend their heartfelt thanks and appreciation to all of our mother’s friends and neighbors. You were always there with nice invitations to dinner and whenever Shirley needed help with something or a ride to the store. Your friendship was something special that she always talked about.
Per Shirley’s wishes, there will be no services. Donations in her memory may be made to the Animal Care Council, 131 Washington Avenue, Endicott, NY 13760.
