They moved to Hill County in the early 1970’s where they raised their family and worked as real estate agents for over thirty years.

Shirley truly had a heart for the Lord, and that love for the Lord shined through in everything she did. Her smile could light up a room and bring comfort to all who knew her.
Of the many things Shirley poured her heart into that brought her joy, her greatest joy was her family and friends.
The McGinty family would like to thank Amedisys Hospice and their caregivers for their care, and an incredibly special thank you to Martha Salazar and Christina Cox for their care, love and support of Shirley.
Shirley’s wisdom and love will be greatly missed by her family and all who knew her.
