Margaret Ellen Ellis Shirley
Birth: Nov. 18, 1938
Whitfield County
Georgia, USA
Death: Dec. 16, 2001
DeKalb County
Georgia, USA

Margaret was the daughter of Des and Gene Ellis.
She graduated from Dalton HS in 1956 and went to Agnes Scott College and then to Georgia Tech for her Masters as a student in her 40's.

She and John Marion Shirley married in 1957 in Bainbridge, GA.
John attended and graduated from Georgia Tech. In 1962 their only child, Jan, was born.

She was counselor at Agnes Scott until her death from cancer.

She touched lives and gave to all she met. Her friendly manner, soft speaking nature, and extremely good looks as well as her intelligence and musical talent invited friends into our family. To me she was the "little Mother" who wouldn't let anyone pick on her baby sister.
