ALVIN: Shirley Mae Fuller, 74, was surrounded by love when she took the step through the Pearly Gates on March 3rd, 2019. Shirley was born December 22nd, 1945 in Cuero, Texas to Hubert and Myrtle (Hairell) Long. She grew up in the Shiner and Yoakum area developing her strong will and spirit that made her the wonderful woman that we love and miss today.
She loved her family, fishing, traveling, playing cards and dominoes, cooking delicious food, Bingo, shopping and just had a passion for life! She was a hard worker and instilled that into her children and grandchildren. She would make friends with anyone and wouldn't let you go hungry if you were over for dinner. Now she is doing all the things she loved with the love of her life on the golden streets of Heaven!
