She was born in Vassar, MI to Bob and Vera Temple. She had three sisters Kay, Nancy, Sheryl, and two brothers Jim and Tom. Shirley graduated from Taylor University with a Bachelor of Arts and went on to teach kindergarten for 33 years. It was at Taylor University that she met Tom Spear, who was her husband for over 60 years. Together they had two daughters Cindy and Rebecca and two grandchildren Hunter and Chauntel. She was a kindergarten teacher for 33 years but if you ask her family what her greatest accomplishment was it was putting up with tom for over 60 years mostly by shhhing him. They enjoyed a beautiful life full of tennis, golf, skiing, and sitting on the beach in Speculator with their Kids and then Grandkids. Shirley was an amazing vibrant woman who took care of everyone in her family and always had a smile on her face. Her patience, kindness, and overall loving demeanor will be missed by all.
