Obituary for Shirley A. DeLong (McLaughlin)

Shirley worked as a clerk for Miller's 5 & 10, Hamburg for twenty-one years. She also worked as an aide and night supervisor for the Hamburg Center for twenty-two years, retiring in 1996. In Shirley's younger days, she was very active in the former Salem EC Church in Hamburg, and is now a member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Auburn. She was a former Sunday School teacher and church organist. Shirley also taught Good News Club through Child Evangelism throughout Berks County. She was a 1952 graduate of Hamburg High School and also attended the Philadelphia Bible school. Shirley enjoyed bowling, knitting, crocheting and reading. She loved her animals of all kinds, but dogs were her favorite.
Shirley is survived by her loving care takers Linda Senft, Heather Sites, Amanda Heckman and last but not least Kyla Lannoo. She loved the family that she had made with all of them. She is also survived by many cousins.
Shirley was loved by many friends.
