Condolence & Memory Journal

My memories of Shirley go far back: to an early 1950s KSU Lutheran Student baseball game at the farm with high school-age Shirley watching; to reports of what a great lunch-maker Shirley was when Arthur played with Barry; to co-teaching weekday "Sunday School" at Happy Day with two-year olds Bruce and Joanna in tow; to crazy Couples' Club evenings; to a custom-made, Shirley-designed cake. . . . Memories so quirky, singular--but clear as bells. We didn't know of her death till too late to attend her funeral. But we mourn this intelligent, capable, loving lady. And we rejoice that she is now with her Lord and her Jimmy. Ann and Bill Hildebrand

I just heard today that we lost another wonderful "RMH family" member. I worked with both Jim and Shirley in the Emergency Department at RMH, where they volunteered for many years. I always looked forward to seeing them both and shared many family stories with them. My thoughts and prayers go to everyone in the Wemyss families, during this difficult time. They both were well loved and are missed!

Your parents were a wonderful couple. I enjoyed getting to know them as they volunteered at the hospital. It was always fun to hear stories of the family gatherings. Your Dad was a great story teller.
