Shirley Joan Sherman was born to Justus "Judy" and Lucille Hill Sherman on June 17, 1936 in Hillsdale, Vermillion, Indiana. Hillsdale is an unincorporated community in Helt Township, Vermillion County, Indiana, USA. Hillsdale is located on the western banks of the Wabash River.

The 1940 U.S. Federal Census tells us Lucille (Hill) and Judy Sherman were living in Helt Township, Vermillion County, Indiana. Lucille and Judy had three children by this time: Dean, Shirley Joan and Dorthea Jean Sherman. Also in the household was Rosalie Handin (Houchin), who was the daughter of Lucille from a previous marriage.

Cliff Taylor met Shirley Sherman at R.R. Donnelly in Crawfordsville, Indiana, where she was employed. Cliff delivered the U.S. Mail to R.R. Donnelly. On December 4, 1955, Clifford Taylor married Shirley Joan Sherman at Marshall, Parke, Indiana, USA.

Shirley and Cliff Taylor were blessed with four children: Vicky Lynn, Stephen Mark, Gregory Scott and Stephanie Wray. Shirley was a stay-at-home mother. She enjoyed her family and was devoted to her grandchildren.

In 1974, Shirley and Cliff Taylor moved from Indianapolis, Marion, Indiana to Irving, Dallas, Texas, USA with their children.

After the death of her father on June 24, 1992, Shirley purchased a trailer at Lake Whitney for her family to enjoy. Her father had left her some money upon his death.

In 1993, Shirley and Cliff had a lovely home at 8230 Thetford Lane in Houston, Texas and maintained the home in Irving, Dallas, Texas, as well.
