She was born in Farrell, PA on June 25, 1935 a daughter of the late Thomas Yazvac and Kathryn Dolosky.

Shirley graduated from Farrell High School where she was active in cheerleading, serving as captain of the team. Upon graduation, Shirley moved to Erie to attend St. Vincent School of Nursing.

Shortly after getting married, she and Paul moved their family onto Forest Drive.

This group co-hosted frequent dinner parties and supported each other through good times and bad. Truly incredible friends.

Shirley made every holiday special with beautiful table settings, special décor, delicious food and a great cocktail. She was an amazing, loving “Nana” to all including her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Shirley was an excellent cook, baker and gardener.
